Trivia

Scream Queen Linnea Quigley is credited as "Athlete". Actually, she was the nude body double for Lynn Banashek (Annie) during the massage therapy session with Sally Kirkland. If you watch closely, the shot of Annie's body on the massage table is from the neck down and all close-ups of her face are shot separately. This is due to actress Lynn Banashek's reluctance to appear nude on screen. Years later, Linnea Quigley and Sally Kirkland would reunite by chance on the same episode of The Chuck Woolery Show and recognized each other. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Fatal film !
25 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

I saw this one at the Bruxelles film festival (memories, memories.) and the finale had everybody laughing out loud. But. the rest is just boring slasher stuff without anything that makes a good movie. Good if you want some noise in the background and raises your eyes when you hear a scream. Otherwise, skip it.
