The film opens with a text saying that in 1963 Alfred Hitchcock made a film titled The Birds, and people laughed at it, but when a real bird attack occurred in 1975, no one laughed. The next scene is a tomato coming out of a woman's garbage disposal, and it then killed the woman. The police then come to investigate her death.

- IT WAS INSPIRED BY A KILLER MUSHROOM MOVIE. By the early 1960s, Toho Studios had become a monster movie factory. In 1954, the Japanese company introduced the world to Godzilla, a city-smashing reptile who has starred in more than two dozen movies (and counting).
- IT BEGAN AS A STUDENT FILM. Dillon went on to attend the University of California, Davis, where he enrolled in a film course with two of his high school buddies: John De Bello and James Stephen Peace.
- ONE OF ITS STARS LATER BECAME A STATE SENATOR. Upon leaving college, Peace and De Bello founded Four Square Productions, which Dillon later joined. Based in San Diego, the company specialized in taping high school and junior college football games.
