Did You Know?
The original movie was called "Strip Club Slaughter", and was a vulgar humorous slasher film, in the spirit of the 80s genre. After pre-production began, the lives of co-producers Adam Ahlbrandt and Natalie Jean were so tumultuous that the film took a dark tone, also contributed to by the exceptionally cold winter the production filmed through. Many of the scenes were shot without heating. There are still several moments left in the film that touch on the original, more silly content. See more
