Trivia

According to Clint Howard and director 'Eric Weston (I)', the original cut of the film which he submitted to the ratings board contained even more footage than the current uncut DVD release, including more special effects, as well as extensions of the bathtub death scene and the cadet having his heart ripped out. But to date their labored efforts to find a copy of this version have proven futile, and they believe it is likely gone forever. See more »

Quotes

Stanley Coopersmith: Maybe you're right. Maybe this puppy is better off not making it. It's a tough world out there. You got to be able to kick and scratch if you want to survive. I found that out right after my parents died. From what I can tell, like these other pups, it's the ones that can do the most pushing and shoving that get the biggest piece of the pie.

Somewhat Close to PUMPKINHEAD! Seriously!
6 November 2002 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I was rooting for Clint Howard's character the whole way through and the guy himself definitely tries to put out a good performance, though he does stumble at times. But this "nerd-gets-revenge" flick never let go of my attention. It's not exactly PUMPKINHEAD or CARRIE but the finale is a real fright, the kind of ending that sticks with you some time after the ending credits are over and the tape rewound.
