The stone-looking interior of the mausoleum was actually constructed of plywood and marble colored plastic contact paper.

That's what I usually figure too. Weeping openly

I swear I didn't jump when the Tall Man put his hand on Jodie's shoulder. I swear. Really. I didn't. Shocked

He is the the most unsettling funeral director ever. That's the guy that's supposed to pass as the guy that's going to comfort the mourners?

I actually saw this movie for the first time on TV when I was 12. I couldn't really figure out how to pronounce the title correctly but I saw a commercial for it on a local station and decided to check it out. I was blown away. I thought it was so cool. As I still do to this day.

That was a real coffin. Angus Scrimm is really strong.

Several references to Frank Herbert's Dune, including a bar named "Dune" and a scene where Mike is forced to insert his hand into a black box that inflicts pain as part of a test.

Michael Baldwin was also in Don Coscarelli's previous film Kenny and Company.

Has anyone seen that? I think it's out on DVD. Possibly from Anchor Bay.

*AHEM*

The coffin that Mike sees the Tall Man lift by himself and shove back into the hearse was made out of balsa wood, empty, and had a rope on the side facing away from the camera to make it easier to handle.

I caught it late one night on TV when I was little. I was sleepy and kept dozing off, so it didn't make much sense to me, but I still loved it.

My best memory of Angus is when he read The Raven at a Fango WOH con in Cali.

I didn't know that. Cool. I guess that's where they got the idea for the giant worms in the desert too?
