- It rained so much during filming of The Tripper that director David Arquette, at the wrap party, gave each cast and crew member a personalized poncho. In fact, one of the few days it DIDN'T rain was when they shot the rain scenes. They had to make rain for these scenes.
David Arquette went on a nationwide tour of U.S. cities, with the help of myspace.com, to promote the film.
When David Arquette did a panel for this film at the 2006 San Diego Comic-Con International, the footage he wanted to show was missing. He offered a reward of a car that was used in the movie for the return of the footage.
David Arquette stated during his bus tour that he came up with the idea for the film during a Reggae party held outside, where he envisioned a murderer "coming out of the woods and slashing up all the hippies." The idea eventually led to The Tripper.
The film was originally going to be a part of After Dark Production's "8 Films to Die For," but Arquette wanted the film to be released in theaters and on April 20th (4/20), so they respectfully parted ways.
