Trivia

While it was largely ignored upon its release in 1964, the film's showing on Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988) in 1993 revitalized interest in it, so much so that it was given a premiere showing in Huntington, West Virginia (where it was filmed) in 1994. The premiere was attending by several surviving cast and crew members. See more »

Goofs

The sound of the car crash occurs quite a few seconds after we see it happen. See more »

Teen-Age Stagecraft
29 June 2009 | by (Proctorville, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The murders in this schlocky, mistitled movie seem merely peripheral to the real action, which is all the singing, dancing, flirting, and fighting at a local teen hangout. It is hardly surprising, then, that the filmmakers include a songwriter of two tunes featured in the adolescent action. Though the settings are realistic--since actual locations were utilized--no one succeeded in finding a competent director or cast. Bill Bloom, however, as Jimmy, somehow struggles through the mire of an inane script to show some skills as an actor. Most of the players range from wooden to overwrought, so that the movie does emerge with some worth as an unintentional farce.
