Movie Quote(s):
  • John Oldman: What if a man from the Upper Paleolithic had survived until the present day?
  • Harry: Edith, I was raised on the Torah, my wife on the Qu'Ran, my eldest son is an Atheist, my youngest is a scientologist, my daughter is studying Hinduism, I imagine there is room there for a holy war in my living room, but we practice live and let live.
  • Dan: I'm going home and watch Star Trek for a dose of sanity.
  • John Oldman: And that's what I taught, but a talking snake made a lady eat an apple, so we're screwed.
  • Edith: [talking about God] He's everywhere. We just can't see him. Harry: Pfft. If this was the best I could do, I'd be hiding, too.
Movie Trivia:
  • The last work from screenwriter Jerome Bixby before his death.
  • The Tony Todd character, "Dan", mentions that he is gonna go home and watch Star Trek. Tony Todd appeared in seven episodes and one video game of Star Trek since 1990, John Billingsley starred in Star Trek: Enterprise and screenwriter Jerome Bixby wrote several episodes of the original series. Richard Riehle also guest starred in episodes of "Star Trek: The Next Generation", "Star Trek: Voyager and "Star Trek: Enterprise".
  • There were no deleted scenes for this movie, only 3 deleted lines, as explained by Director Richard Schenkman in the DVD commentary.
  • Tony Todd was the first person cast for this movie.
  • The whole movie was shot using 2 Panasonic DVX 1000 camcorders, which probably explains the overall grainy look of the film.
