The title was changed from "The Killing Touch" to "Fatal Games" after its release. Many of the cast and crew were unaware of the change. Spice Williams-Crosby was once asked about her experiences on "Fatal Games" by a fan and she denied appearing in such a film. It wasn't until later she realized they were referring to "The Killing Touch". See more »
The camera's shadow (notably the 400' MAG) is visible on the ground, filming the POV shot of the killer stalking the pool. See more »
Disposable - though not disgraceful - slasher movie
Yet another slasher movie from the 80's. This one is set in a sports academy and has the novelty of the killer using a somewhat unorthodox weapon - a javelin. But that novelty wears off after a while. There is not much suspense, no real clues to the "mystery" part, and the ending - especially the motivation of the killer - is absurd. There is also a rather laughable scene where the killer enters a pool in full scuba gear, javelin in hand, and his/her soon-to-be-victim fails to notice anything and keeps on swimming! On the plus side, there is ample nudity, a few well-done gore effects, the two main girls are cute, and most of the character interactions sound genuine. Enough good points to get this movie 4 stars out of 10.
