My dumb theory that has no supporting evidence in the movie is that the old man fell in love with the witch girl back when he was a teen but was unwilling to go Satanist so he continued to age into a grandpa figure while keeping an eye on her. Maybe he sees Jodie as the young version of himself.

Production

The cinematography was done by Jordan Cronenweth who would later work on 1982's Blade Runner.[2]

He was also the Cinematographer for the Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense. He was DoP on Blade Runner.

This is who I thought it would be, and he's great. He's reviewed a handful of MST and Rifftrax movies. I love when he breaks down the technical aspects of filmmaking.

A+, would highly recommend his channel.

The Yipe Stripes scene also has one of my favourite riffs from the whole movie. After the song when that one weird goober is doing a dance that's 99% butt, Bill goes "doin' da butt, uhh uhh, doin' da butt!"

Which is probably a reference to this song that possibly three people in the world remember:

WAIT.

A Case of Spring Fever is from the second to last episode of the original show? How can that be, I'm sure there were Coily references earlier in the show, and I've seen the short a billion times despite not watching Squirm that often.

Oh I know -- I must have accidentally crossed between universes from a universe where A Case of Spring Fever was a short in season 5 to this one. Phew, that settles it.

IIRC they'd seen and known about the short for years (hence the previous references) but couldn't get the rights until that last season or something like that.

FWIW, the first reference to the short took place during experiment #317, The Saga of the Viking Women and Their Voyage to the Waters of the Great Sea Serpent, all the way back in season 3. The host segments were all about Joel's love of waffles, and one of them featured Crow as "Willy the Waffle Wizard", who showed what the world would be like without waffles. Waffle?

I only became aware of the show at the end of its Comedy Central run but didn't get into it until the Sci-fi years (thanks cable availability). I'll always have a soft spot for those bits. ("Leave me alone ya big dumb alien" is a legit useful phrase though.)

Esoteric because I was a huge deadhead in college but I swear to god I have heard someone say "it was like [JAM BAND GUY] willed it" irl. The "This song, into that song, BACK into the other song then BACK again into the other song" I've heard a million times irl.

Think it's Ring of Terror but honestly, completely understandable our recollections would differ because it's such a bizarre nonentity of a movie.

That's the episode where they did the weird experiment of having a short at the end, which I don't think I like but I can see the motivation for - it really hits home just how Ring of Terror just sort of ends just at the point when surely something of substance must happen by having you watching the episode and expect there to be about 20 minutes more movie where there isn't.

No you're right, and I'm literally watching the episode rn lol. It's weird because the story twist implies a guy getting his comeuppance, but the guy isn't like being a dick about being fearless. He's not bragging about how nothing scares him and using it to some negative purpose. He's just a really nice guy?

"And then the moon came out and it was like Jerry willed it" is 100% something I've had said to me.

Also, more recently at a Phish show the clouds parted and there was a full moon in the sky and someone nearby said Jerry was shining down on us.

On the flipside of Grateful Dead references, two of my favorite punk rock references came from Zombie Nightmare, when the "punk" guy is fighting with the cops at the station.

Mike: "Whoa, Stiv Bators is pissed!"

Tom: "Auditions for the band FEAR."

Apparently the screenwriters had no prior credits and never worked again and you can kind of see why, because the movie comes across as something written by people who had a vague understanding of what horror movies are kind of like but zero understanding of why they work.

The director was the amazingly named Clark Paylow (why would you ever sign onto one of his projects with a name like that?), and this was his only feature film as lead director - he was much more prolific as an assistant director and I guess that makes sense given that he seems to have been entirely unable here to correct for the bad decisions of the script. Seems like someone who'd be OK to do second unit stuff or whatever under supervision but not someone you want making the final aesthetic and storytelling decisions.
