The film is one of several so-called "drive-in" flicks that were presented as true stories (à la The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972), Walking Tall (1973), The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), Macon County Line (1974), and The Town That Dreaded Sundown (1976)) when most, if not all, of what was portrayed on screen was outright fiction-- with the exception of "The Town That Dreaded Sundown", which was inspired by the Phantom Killer murders in Texarkana, Texas in 1946.
