Trivia

Stephen King, being a former cocaine addict, later admitted that he was "coked out of my mind" the entire time he was making this picture and often didn't know what he was doing. He remarked that he'd like to try directing again someday, this time sober.


Quotes

Man At Cashpoint: Honey, come on over here, sugarbuns. This machine just called me an asshole.


Goofs

The gun mounted on top of the motorized turret can not be controlled by the turret as shown when the turret comes alive. The gun is a separate item mounted on top of the turret, not part of the turret's mechanical system.
