Did You Know?

Dee Snider makes at least two references to co-star Robert Englund's most famous character Freddy Krueger. First is as Carleton Hendricks recovers from his fall from the tree. As he sits up he says, "What a rush" in a very passable "Freddy" voice, one of the many one-liners uttered by Freddy Krueger during the series. The second reference is when he's fighting Detective Gage in the church. He says, "First you dream, then you die," a reference to the plot of the Freddy Krueger/A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) series.See more »
Continuity: There is a newspaper next to a barking dog. The newspaper jumps from place to place on the driveway. A man in a red robe picks up the paper and in the next shot of the driveway the paper is gone. Then it re-appears in the driveway, again jumping from place to place, then disappears again.See more »

they shoot horses don't they, 31 August 2003
Author: davphv

Put this movie out of it's misery and burn the negatives. What am I saying? The whole movie was negative. Fortunately, only a very few would find this movie the least bit appealing. This is what the vast American majority would call too much sex and violence. It will probably show up on some non-premium cable channel someday just for the shock value, but after editing out the nudity (most of the violence will stay) all that will be left is 45 minutes of really bad acting interspersed with 45 minutes of commercials. There are just too many starving actors in Hollywood.
