Trivia: The people in the boat at the begging of the film are members of Stephen King's favorite band, AC/DC, who also wrote the music for the movie.

Trivia: The Dixie Boy Truck Stop was built strictly for the movie, and was not a functional stop. However, there were so many real truckers trying to pull in, that the film crew had to put up signs directing them not to stop by. After the filming, people got together and revamped it into a working place and tourist attraction, but closed it after a few months of bad business.

Factual error: The mounted machine gun fires far too many shots for the limited supply of ammo it has in the box attached to it.
