Audio problem: During the scene where Dr. Challis goes to visit his two kids, they put on their Halloween masks and his little son says "Let's watch TV." He goes to turn the knob to turn on the TV and a split second before he turns it, we can hear the intro of the commercial on the television.
The doctor manages to escape the strange town. The girl dies and a robot takes her place but the doctor manages to destroy the girl robot. The doctor manages to have the major networks stop the broadcast of the silver shamrock commercial but the movie closes with one station still broadcasting and he is unable to stop it.
Linda Challis: Children, we leave our food AT the table.
Daniel Challis: I'm sorry, it's bad timing.
Linda Challis: I'm used to it. Remember?
Trivia: Spoilers: Originally, the credits were going to be accompanied by the sound of wailing cries of children, implying that Cochran's plan worked. However, it was later decided to instead simply play the movie's theme over the credits to leave the ending more ambiguous, so that the audience will never know for sure whether or not Challis stopped Cochran's plans.
