Movie Quote(s):
  • Rene LaRoque: Something is out there... waiting.
  • Pete Horn: No man can stand against it alone. Something is out there... waiting.
  • Rene LaRoque: [speaking to Sheriff Kyle Williams in the swamp] Go home, or you will die.
  • Steve Gerber: [to Teri] Why don't y'all go fuck a tree, ya hippie bitch!
  • [as he's getting bitten by mosquitoes while exploring the swamp] Sheriff Kyle Williams: Smart, Kyle. Take the Bywater job. Get a tan...beer belly...lots of sun. Get fuckin' eaten alive.
Movie Trivia:
  • This was originally intended for a direct-to-video release, but later there was plans for a small release to theaters. However those plans were scrapped, and the movie's fate became unknown, until it was later announced as a Sci Fi Channel original movie for Spring 2005. The DVD and VHS became available in Summer 2005.
  • Although filming was originally intended to be done in New Orleans, budget realities forced the production to be relocated to Australia. They were the first production to use the new Kurnell studios, and enlisted regional actors for virtually every role.
  • A test screening for the movie was held in which half of the audience walked out before the movie even ended.
  • The characters of Steve Gerber (William Zappa) and Mike Ploog (Robert Mammone) are references to the comic creators by the same names. While they didn't create the Man-Thing, they worked together on the first ongoing series of the comic book character and developed it further (e.g. establishing the "nexus of all realities"). Steve Gerber is also known as creator of "Howard the Duck" and Mike Ploog is famous for his work on Marvel Comics' adaptations "Planet of the Apes" and "Monster of Frankenstein" and most recently for his work on "Abadazad" (CrossGen Comics) and "Stardust Kid" (Image Comics) with writer J.M. DeMatteis.
  • The character of Val Mayerik (Brett Leonard) is also a reference to the creator by the same name. He worked with Steve Gerber on the first ongoing Man-Thing comic book series, too.
