Storyline

A group of sixties teenagers bored with the party they're at drive out to a deserted old mansion, but their laughter turns to fear when one of them is killed in a frenzied knife attack. Another of them persuades the rest that they should solve the murder themselves rather than go to the police, not surprisingly opening the way to further carnage. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

Michael Armstrong's original script was much more psychedelic and envisaged David Bowie in the role of Richard, but he was overruled by AIP as it was considered that Bowie would clash with Frankie Avalon. He was replaced by Noel Janus but objections by Equity led to him being replaced with Julian Barnes (who had originally been cast as Henry). See more »

Goofs

Richard stabs his mate with a huge knife, which emerges covered in blood almost to the hilt. 30 seconds later Richard is holding the knife with no blood on it then 1 minute after that, the knife has just a little blood on it. See more »

Looks good but pretty boring
24 February 2003 | by (Oceanside,Ca.) – See all my reviews

When I was about 10 years old me and my friend saw this on TV and the ending really freaked us out! We had never seen so much blood and gore on television before and it stunned us. Well, 30 years later I've finally seen this film again. I've been searching for it ever since. I didn't know the title but I never miss a horror film so I was bound to run into it again. It took 30 years! The film starts slowly with Frankie Avalon playing a rare serious role. The film has two very bloody scenes that you don't expect from an Avalon film during this time. The ending is strange and inconclusive. One of the things that I did enjoy are the real 60's London mod style of clothing. Very interesting to see the style during these times. But the film does have a fatal flaw. There just is to much talking and not enough time spent in the horror house. So after all these years the two bloody scenes still pack a wallop but its still a tedious film. A curio, though.
