Trivia

When BCI Eclipse obtained the rights to release Blood Song on DVD, they could not find any original elements or prints to transfer. This means the original elements and prints either no longer exist or are temporarily lost. BCI was then forced to use a video source to transfer instead. See more »

Goofs

At about 18:18 the doctor says to the nurse that Marions' blood type is O positive, and it's "rough to come by". O positive is the most common blood type, and not rare at all. See more »

Originally called "Premonitions"
7 June 2000 | by DeSadeSee all my reviews

I had the opportunity to be an extra in this movie while in high school in North Bend, OR, where it was filmed. The staff of the film was unprofessional, to say the least, and the overall acting in the movie was sub-par, if not worse.

Nichelle North was a very nice person as was the gentleman who played the part of the Sheriff. Frankie Avalon was not believable as a psychopathic killer on the loose. He should have stuck with his beach movies instead.
