Did You Know?

The crew had to paint the leaves of trees and bushes green on location, because the film was being shot in winter, but was supposed to be set in warmer weather.See more »

forgotten chiller from 81, 8 March 1999
Author: saint-21

I remember seeing the commerical on t.v. when I was young, and it scared me. It's a shame movies today can't do the same. Well, I saw it on video, and it was scary, and the madman was scary, but!!! the acting is lousy, Overlook that and we have a scary little forgotten chiller from 1981. The year in which a lot of horror came out.......
