Did You Know?

Trivia:
The original killer dog "Jake" was hired without a rehearsal and sight unseen because Eli Roth loved the idea of using the dog in the Patrick Swayze movie Black Dog (1998) and there by being only "two degrees from Swayze". The problem was the dog was by then 4 years older, arthritic, and tired. After a full day of shooting, and if all the few second bits were spliced expertly together, they only had about a minute or so of usage footage. All dog scenes had to be re-shot with a new dog. With no time or money to find a replacement, the producers cast a real police attack dog that was so vicious and unpredictable no actors could appear with it on camera. The crew would hide behind trucks during its scenes, and cameras were operated by remote control.See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Though the scenery dictates fall, and the characters say that they had just finished finals, they mean that they had just finished their Fall semester finals, not their end of year or spring semester finals.See more »

Best movie of T.I.F.F.? I say yes!, 19 July 2003
Author: buggsy97 from Boston, MA

I saw this film at the Toronto International Film Festival (sept 02), and i was thoroughly impressed - of the 42 movies i saw, this was the best (even better than Bubba Ho-Tep, and i am a HUGE Bruce Campell fan). If you like movies like the Evil Dead trilogy, Last House on the Left, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you will love this movie. The acting is surprisingly good for a bunch of nobodies, the story is very well developed (even a few really funny jokes, always good in horror), and the gore is INCREDIBLE! For those of you that miss the extreme gore of the 70s and early 80s, you will not want to miss this film. If you like absurd, black humor, you might also enjoy it a lot. And if you want a change from the standard slasher in the woods as the villain, definitely check this out. I'm predicting this will be the best horror movie of the year.
