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.

Question: One of the early posters of this film shows a bearded guy (who is not in the film) coming through a wall crack and holding puppet strings with one hand. Who is this guy supposed to be and what does he represent?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: He does bear a striking resemblance to Stephen King. King was both the writer and director of this movie, and as such, was certainly the guy in charge of all the character's fates and pulling all the strings.
