Did You Know?

After filming was completed, the executive producer decided that the film didn't work and hired screenwriter Ron Oliver to rewrite and reshoot several sequences for one week and $100,000. This included the climax of the locker room death scene, the rocking horse with the tongue and the chalkboard whirlpool.See more »

Hints of German Expressionism, 26 June 2003
Author: minipistola from New York

Though this movie often gets skewered on the message boards it is a delight for those who appreciate the high school horror films of the 80's. The acting is stale, the story is one we've all heard before but this film had some memorable touches. The locker room scene is one of my all-time favorite death scenes and this film used the art class paper cutter as a weapon way before Josh Hartnett wielded one in "The Faculty". The "living rocking horse" is definitely something viewers wont easily forget and that scene reminds me of horrors historical roots in cinema: that scene screams German Expressionism as much as the title sequence in "Nightmare on Elm Street". If you don't like camp, this movie will be hard to swallow, but if you're a fan of the B movies you rented as a kid just because the cover art looked creepy: bon apetit.
