Trivia

Ray Dennis Steckler's original cut of "The Chooper" was only 60 minutes long. The film could not be distributed unless it was a minimum of 70 minutes, so Steckler went back and added 10 minutes of random footage from the rodeo. See more »

Goofs

The setting is a small house and shack in the middle of the desert, an open area with no hiding places, yet the Chooper is able to run around dressed entirely in black in the middle of broad daylight without being noticed. See more »

Blood Shat
1 June 2001 | by (Slough, England) – See all my reviews

Easily the best horror film ever made. Makes 'The Shining' look like a crappy B-Movie. The way in which the film turns into a rodeo home-movie half-way through, for no apparent reason, is nothing short of genius.
