Did You Know?
When Jackie drives to her father and stepmother's house, she sits on the right-hand side of the car (as is normal in the UK). But when she drives back, the footage is the exact mirror of the drive there, with her sitting on the left. See more
They said she was well again! They said she was well...
There have been many discrepancies involving the recent DVD release of this title by Image Entertainment:
- The version has an 84-minute running time. The original running time is 87 minutes. There appears to be no footage missing. The print used was no doubt time compressed during the film-to-tape transfer. The version on the DVD release is in fact the uncut R-rated version.
- The R-rated U.S. theatrical cut is uncut despite the rumors. The "Frightmare 2" video release is slightly edited, removing a brief gore spot. The DVD displays the uncut R-rated version.
- The transfer on the DVD is presented full-frame at 1.33:1. Director Pete Walker shot the film in 1.33:1 full frame with the intention of matting the film at 1.85:1. The image on the DVD represents the full 1.33:1 frame as Walker shot it. As a result, there is excess picture information at the top and bottom of the frame. The 1.85:1 matting would have created a more compositionally correct image but the transfer represents the film as it was shot.
