Trivia: Almost the entire score was taken from "Phantasm II," with only a few minor tweaks and additions. As the film was low budget, this was done as a cost-saving measure.
Trivia: A. Michael Baldwin was allowed to return to the role of Mike as the film was not funded by studios. He had not been allowed to star in "Phantasm II" due to a studio mandate. Universal agreed to distribute the film once it was completed, but left the production to director Don Coscarelli.
