[Krug is trying to get his girlfriend to have sex with him] Krug Stillo: Why don't you lay back and enjoy being inferior?
Fred "Weasel" Podowski: How'd we get into the sex crime business anyway? My brother, Saul, a plumber, makes twice as much money as I do and gets three weeks vacation too.
Krug Stillo: We don't wanna off someone first night out. I mean, it'd be a shame to get this floor all messed up with blood.
Mari: The leaves are really beautiful. Phyllis Stone: Yup, they're really starting to change. I guess winter's comin' on! Mari: Yup, Hey! I changed this winter! Phyllis Stone: What do you mean you changed? Mari: I mean my breasts filled out! [Phyllis laughs] Mari: I mean they were nothing last summer! Phyllis Stone: I didn't know you last summer!

- When fledgling director Wes Craven took this film to the MPAA, they slapped it with an "X" rating. Wanting an R for wider release, Craven went back and removed ten minutes of footage. However, this still wasn't enough and the film still got an "X" rating. Once again Craven removed footage, this time taking out 20 minutes. It still wasn't enough. Finally, Craven put all of the original footage back in, got an authentic "RATED R" seal of approval from the film board from a friend of his, put it on the film and released it.
Wes Craven took Mari Collingwood's surname from his high school.
Wes Craven later used the name "Krug" in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) for the film's villain, "Freddy KRUEGer." In both films the name is used for teenage murderers.
Based on the film Jungfrukällan (1960)
This movie has been banned several times in the UK by the BBFC. Originally, in 1974, it received an R rating and was banned. In 1984, it was banned again when it became a "video nasty", and remained that way until 2000, where it again received an R rating. In 2001, it, yet again, received an R rating and remained banned. Finally, a video version in 2002 was passed with around 30 seconds of cuts for an 18 rating, ending a 28 year streak of being banned. It was finally passed fully uncut by the BBFC in March 2008.
