Filming was completed in 1986, but the movie took a year to be released. Some commentators have speculated that this was due to the fact that it was made during the time that the director, John Landis, was on trial for manslaughter in the deaths on the set of the film Twilight Zone - The Movie (1983).

The saga of "See You Next Wednesday". In the 'Video Pirates' segment, two of the video cassettes in the treasure chest are labeled "See You Next Wednesday". John Landis says he originally had the idea for a movie called "See you next Wednesday" as a 15 year old in 1965. The movie was never made, but he has since revealed that he often references his unmade film in his movies. For example, it was the title on the marquee on the theatre that Michael Jackson and Ola Ray leave at the start of the "Thriller" music video and was the supposed p*rn film playing in the theatre scene in "An American Werewolf in London". It appears as a billboard in the "Blues Brothers". In a twist, it is said, in German, by some soldiers in the Vic Morrow WW 2 scene of "Twilight Zone: The Movie". It often appears as a movie poster in his films, including "Coming To America", and "Trading Places".
Deleted Scenes
When movies are made, scenes are often left on the cutting room floor.
