Movie Quote(s):
  • Steve West: You've never seen anything, til you've seen the Sun through the rings of Saturn!
  • Second Security Guard: Who the hell are you? Dr. Ted Nelson: I'm Dr. Ted Nelson! First Security Guard: Don't move! Dr. Ted Nelson: LISTEN TO ME I'M DOCTOR TED NELSON!
  • Helen: Let's get the hell out of here!
  • [it's lunch time at the Nelson home] Dr. Ted Nelson: Steve escaped. Judy Nelson: Oh God. What're you gonna do? Dr. Ted Nelson: Uh... did you get some crackers? I told you yesterday that we needed some crackers. Judy Nelson: Oh, I forgot. I knew there was something... Y'know there's uh, there's a pad right by the phone y'know, you could write it down too. [she brings over his soup] Judy Nelson: So what about Steve? Dr. Ted Nelson: So, we don't have any crackers? Judy Nelson: Ted. Steve? Dr. Ted Nelson: Steve? I've got to go out and find Steve.
Movie Trivia:
  • The Vipco release is completely uncut, though the film has been upgraded in the UK from its original cinema certificate of 'AA' ('15') to '18'.
  • A clip of this movie is on "The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made" DVD Region 1 NTSC.
  • The German title of this film is 'Der Planet Saturn Lept Schon Grupen'
  • Assistant director Don Walters cameos in the film as the photographer that stumbles upon the fisherman's corpse.
  • To achieve the gruesome Melting Man monster, makeup effects artist Rick Baker fashioned a slightly over sized skull-shaped helmet for actor Alex Rebar to wear. The piece was painted flesh tone and then was cover by a gooey concoction of syrup and paint. The drippy substance would have to be re-applied for every take of the Melting Man. At the end of each shoot Rebar would have so much of the sticky stuff on him that he would literally have to peel his costume off.
