Movie Trivia:
  • When certain cast members were stuck in their gore make-up for numerous hours, they decided to walk around the neighborhood scaring the wits out of people.
  • The Press reported that in order to keep the "twist" ending a secret several endings were shot. This is untrue but helped hide the fact that while shooting, the film had no ending. The script was written with one ending that made sense to the story, but did not have a twist. So producers proceeded to film while tinkering with a twist. This explains why there is no build up to the ending.
  • Most ads and posters for film carried a photo of a young man about to be orally impaled on skewer of meat and vegetables, with the slogan "John Will Never Eat Skisk Kebab Again." However, there is no character in the movie with this name.
  • Many fans were upset with the 2004 DVD release because, not only did it have a completely different cover to that of the infamous original poster and VHS cover, it featured a disco score in place of the atmospheric piano piece that originally played over the opening credits in theaters and VHS releases. In 2009, Anchor Bay/Starz Home Entertainment re-released the DVD using the original poster as the cover and restoring the original music over the opening sequence.
  • SPOILER: The original scripted ending for the film had Virginia unsurprisingly revealed as the film's killer, having sliced her way through most of the cast before finally being caught. However the filmmakers felt the ending was all too predictable and re-wrote it into a far more twisted revelation.
