Minimal vulgarity from the phone calls were initially scripted, director Bob Clark read out rather tame dialogue for the actors to react to. However stronger coarse language was later looped in post-production for a stronger reaction.
Filthy Billy, I know what you did, nasty Billy!
Before the phone call from Barb's mother, her shirt goes from 3 buttons undone, then after the call, it has one button undone and then 3 buttons undone for the next scene.
A telephone is continously ringing throughout the final credits.
The film was released 3 different times (ntsc format)on DVD and each disc features a different aspect ratio. The first DVD edition from Critical mass (25th anniversary) used the proper full frame format (the film was shot this way). The second DVD release from Critical Mass (listed as being just a special edition) uses a 1:75:1 aspect ratio, it was also noted that director Bob Clark approved of this ratio. The latest DVD special edition from Critical Mass (December, 2006) uses an over-matted 1:85:1 ratio. This 1:85:1 over matted ratio also appeared on the special edition laserdisc that was released by Warner Bros. a few years back.
