Did You Know?
In a scene where John Stockwell's character is under his car "goat" fixing it, Fisher Stevens says to him: "Ya know, I seen this movie where this haunted car flames guys out.", referring to John Carpenter's Christine (1983) in which Stockwell had a major role as Dennis Guilder.
Stockwell refers to his '68 GTO in the film as a goat, I always wanted a goat of my own. He goes on a date to a junkyard, and almost destroys the world, now that is a date! The orb-time-altering-device in the film is a plasma ball from Spencer's, now that is just cool. It's a fun, campy, borderline silly film with a wacky Dennis Hopper as his teacher, it's just plain goodness. Stockwell also starred in another Cheesy B-Movie in 1985 called "Radioactive Dreams," but that is another story, worthy of its own place in Cheesy B-Movie Goodness.
