Felissa Rose (Angela), Karen Fields (Judy), and Katherine Kamhi (Meg) were actually all quite close during filming. Katherine Kamhi said the scene where they throw Angela into the water was hard for her to shoot for that reason. See more »

The version re-released by Anchor Bay in 2000 is cut in the following places. the old Media Video and Video Treasures releases are the most complete versions other than the 2014 DVD and Blu-ray sets released by Scream Factory/Shout! Factory.
In the prank scene in which Mozart's face hits the kid's naked buttocks, the slap sound effect is missing and then his you-guys-are-gross line is out of sync with his lips.
A shot of the naked guys running down the dock is completely missing replaced by a weird over-dubbed cat howl.
The water-snake slithering out of Kenny's mouth is cut drastically to the point where you only see the final few frames of the shot after the snake has emerged.
After Mel accosts the guys for throwing water balloons at Angela, and Ricky and Paul tend to her, a shot of the guy's reaction to Mel leaving is cut, where one calls him a wrinkled old dick.
After Ricky sticks his finger up at Judy and walks off, a shot of Judy coming back with "Same to you!" is gone.
Many frames of Meg's corpse on the bathroom floor are cut, and Mel's reaction is cut up too: "He did it" should be followed by "to get back at me!"
This film hold some personal memories since is was filmed so close to my home town. I remember a good friend of mine missing school in 6th grade to go and be an extra in the film. He actually got in the film longer than intended by sneeking into the frame. Ironically, there was a murder of a young girl just down the road from the lake this was filmed at. It occured about 15 years prior but it was strange to see a movie along the same lines made in such an obscure town. If you look closely at the paramedics carrying away the cook scalded by hot water, you will see their jackets that say Ft. Edward Rescue squad. They were the actual on-site emergency care workers required by law. Funny stuff
