The whole film was shot in actual wastelands. Instead of creating enormous sets and spending vast amounts of money on making everything look run down and toxic, they went to old factories and swam through real pools of poison. There are reports of crew members complaining about hair loss and coughing up blood during shooting.
Everyone involved in the making of Stalker died shortly after completion from various diseases contracted on set. This film is their legacy.
