Trivia

Original director Sean MacGregor was fired from the production after a few weeks of difficult filming and the most of the footage MacGregor directed was deemed unusable. Much of the final version of the movie had to be re-filmed under direction of 'David Sheldon' several weeks later using different interior locations for the inside of the lodge, which noticeably changes in appearance partway through the movie. By the time of Sheldon's re-shoots, Leif Garrett had also gotten a closely cropped dark colored haircut for another production (Macon County Line (1974)) and had to re-film his scenes wearing a wig that is visibly different than his original longer blond hair style.

I just finished watching this movie and I'm not sleeping right now.
16 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is messed up. If you can get past the first 1/2 hour of cheap gratuitous sex and horrid seventies music this movie will really do a number on your fragile sensibilities. I really had to make sure the front door was securely locked about five minutes ago. Oh my God, it's just wrong. A movie like this would never be made today with all the codes that are in place. It's about as unwatchable as Faces of Death which is not entertainment at all but exploitation at humankind's worst. These kids never crack a smile except when they are bickering with each other over futile nonsense. Whoever said there was a hopeless feeling to this movie is right. This is some creepy stuff.
