Earl Bassett, now a washed-up ex-celebrity, is hired by a Mexican oil company to eradicate a Graboid epidemic that's killing more people each day. However, the humans aren't the only one with a new battle plan.
Earl points to a Playboy centerfold on his wall and says that it was Miss October of 1974. The real Miss October 1974 was Ester Cordet, a brown-haired Panamanian, in contrast to the blond Helen Shaver who, in the film, is supposed to be the woman in the photo. The actual centerfold seen in the film is of Miss September of 1970, Debbie Ellison.
We're gonna haul his ass off to monster world.
Kate incorrectly refers to the Shriekers as "hermaphrodites". How the Shriekers reproduce would be considered a form of asexual reproduction. Indeed, Kate then says "they reproduce without having sex". The term 'hermaphrodite' refers to animals that have both sets of male and female reproductive organs. In the case of the Shriekers, in which they don't appear to have any such reproductive organs, they would be considered asexual.
