Notes & Trivia Edit

  • Alternatively spelled X-tro.
  • The tagline for this movie is, "When Tony grows up, he's going to be just like Daddy!".
  • Harry Bromley Davenport once compared the music score from Xtro to "screaming synthesizers". [2]
  • The original ending to the film was to show Rachel coming home to find the apartment filled with clones of Tony, having apparently hatched from the alien eggs which had been left in the refrigerator. However, executive producer Robert Shaye did not feel that the special effects required for the scene would be convincing enough and it was re-edited to show Rachel sitting down in a field after Sam and Tony leave. Harry Bromley Davenport, however, not wanting to have the film end on such an abrupt note, created an alternate ending, which had Rachel going back into the apartment where she picks up one of the eggs. It hatches and a sucker-tendril springs out and latches onto her face.
