Quotes

Rob Hawkins: It's 6:42 AM. Beth's dad's place. He's out of town. And it's already a good day.


Goofs

After the initial attack with the Statue of Liberty head laying in the street and everyone emerges from the store, Hud starts exclaiming that he has footage of the monster, and everyone gathers around Hud as if he is going to play the video. The footage cuts to some additional footage that Hud is supposedly taping over, and then the image resumes, as if Hud turned the recording feature back on just after everyone has seen the footage, and is reacting to the sight.

The problem is that if Hud rewound the tape back to show the footage of the monster, and then stopped the footage just after the monster appeared on the screen, then started recording again, he would have taped over everything that happened after he saw the monster (all of the footage in the store, for instance). Not enough time had elapsed between him showing the footage and his audience's reactions for him to fast-forward again to a spot after the footage we saw of him exclaiming he had images of the monster.


Crazy Credits

At the end of the closing credits there is a garbled radio transmission which some say sounds like "Help us!", when played backward it says "It's still alive!"
