Four characters including Mike Tobacco, Joe Lombardo, and the Terenzi Brothers Rich and Paul were based on real-life childhood friends of the Chiodo Bros, names and all. Mike's full name however is only mentioned in the end credits as well as characters Debbie Stone, and Officer Dave Hansen although a close-up of Dave's uniform in one shot reveals the name tag "Hansen", giving the hero more identity.

To give a tribute to Hitchcock, the director, Stephen Chiodo, mimicked "Psycho's" bloody shower drain with a toilet bowl swirl.

The Chiodo Brothers also designed the 'Krites'...the tiny, savage and perpetually hungry sagebrush-like aliens seen in 'Critters 1,2,3 and 4'.

A pre-"Titus" star Christopher Titus [in glasses] has a small role as a sarcastic college student caught drinking a beer while crossing the street by John Vernon.

In the 1997 PC first-person shooter 'BLOOD', one of the levels features a circus village. The main character enters a large circus tent and there is a huge figure of the clown 'Jo-Jo' from Killer Klowns. Step on the nearby stage and you are treated to a voice chanting 'We Want Jo-Jo... We Want Jo-Jo'. It has nothing to do with the plot of the game, just the game writers paying homage to the film, I guess!!

Grant Cramer (Mike) is the son of Terry Moore, the Hollywood contract actress who was allegedly the secret wife of Howard Hughes.

Royal Dano's voice was best known at Disneyland and Disney World as the voice of Abraham Lincoln. Sadly, at Disneyland, they re-did the show with another voice talent.
