According to director Jeff Lieberman, New York music clubs such as CBGB's would often screen the film as backing visuals during performances of punk bands such as The Ramones, particularly the disco-attack scene. He humorously felt that this was a way for these performers to "shit on" and express their overall distain for the disco scene. See more »
The plot of this movie features seemingly normal people going crazy and slaughtering their family and friends. The carnage is mostly off screen but there are some disturbing scenes. Zalman King is trying to find out what is happening as one of the casualties was a friend. When the first person goes crazy, their makeup- though minimal- is surprising and really creepy. In fact, if I saw someone who looked like that I would run away screaming. This movie was better than I expected and did not telegraph every single plot point ahead of time. It's got a typical 70s feel to it, but I like that. A good movie to watch with friends, but I'm telling you, when you see the first killer you will be unprepared for his creepiness - so don't watch it alone.
