The film was a joint venture between Sampaguita Pictures and LVN, two Filipino film studios that were legends of Philippine Cinema's Golden Age, as well as rivals in the business. Although the studio and facilities continued to exist until 2005, this was one of the last productions to be made by LVN. See more »
De Leon uses the fraternity as a symbol of fascism. The hazing rituals, demoralization, torture and militarism all cover the imposition of the mighty few against individual rights of the hapless ones. The violent rumble at the end captures the fanaticism of the subjects working for the goal of attaining the ultimate high - power. Strong, very powerful, a work of great political understanding from Mike de Leon.
