Trivia

Many scenes in the trailer did not make the final cut because they re-shot the movie almost two years after it was first finished. The original version had, among other changes, a climatic fight between the two ladies with one dying. It was re-shot following bad feedback from test audiences. See more »

Goofs

The church service takes place in the evening but when Jackson, Helen, and Martha return to the farmhouse, it appears to be daytime in the kitchen. The same thing occurs when Helen is talking to Martha in the kitchen late at night while Jackson is sleeping on the couch. See more »

Joseph H. Lewis Redux
21 March 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This stands out as a camp classic of the Joseph H. Lewis variety: there's even a threatening gadget, in this case a steam cabinet. Don't go into this expecting a deep movie and you'll have a lot of fun with the deliberately over-the-top characterizations
