Did You Know?

Lois Kelso Hunt's performance is entirely dubbed. Her voice was deemed not "scary" enough for the role. In the Special Edition DVD from Liberation Entertainment, the film's director, Mark Rosman, comments that he believed that she had the right look for the part but ideally he would have preferred a huskier voice, Lois's voice being more high pitched than he would have liked.See more »
Continuity: When the girls crash the dumpster into the police car, it is stuck against the front of the car. However, when the police officer tells them to move it back, there is suddenly enough room between the dumpster and the car for them to push it back in the other direction.See more »

Trying to be funny, takes a serious turn!, 13 August 1999
Author: saint-21

O.k., lot of alot of elements here! (scream, i know what you did last summer) but in early 80's fashion. This is a pretty good little horror film that i actually enjoyed. Starts out in June of 61' when a woman is giving a painful birth on a dark and rainy night. Speeds up to present day (82). A group of seven college graduates plan to throw a farewell part in a old looking house on sorority row. The house mother gets a little upset (the woman in the beginning giving birth). The plan of the party is shot down. But the girls plan a prank that they think will be a funny sweet revenge, that backfires into a total no laughing nightmare. The house mother is shot dead, so the girls hide her lifeless body in the swimming pool. And proceed on with the party. Then the body turns up missing, and the body count starts. Victims are being stalked and killed. Only thing is The house mothers dead body is found in the attic. ummmm. I wonder if this has anything to do with the beginning!!!!
