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 »

surprisingly vigorous
11 January 2007 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Likable and very much of it's time. With the Carnaby Street settings, mini-skirts, sexy boots, sizzling interior design it's just a shame the 'kids' are lumbered with such inane dialogue and 'action'. a little unfair perhaps because when things do happen, they are surprisingly vigorous. I'm sure not many UK films of this time had as many multiple stabbings or such a high level of blood gushing. So, not very horrific and with a plot line that's an insult to one's intelligence, it is nevertheless worth watching for it's colourful settings and costumerie and those brutal kills. Also a mention for at least two particularly riotous spells of hysteria from a couple of the young 'chicks'.
