Spice Williams-Crosby's character kisses her girlfriend on the forehead due to a compromise with the other actress. Filming went on hiatus for Christmas break and when the actress playing the girlfriend returned, she advised the crew that she had become a Born Again Christian over the holiday break and refused to do the kissing scene.

The camera's shadow (notably the 400' MAG) is visible on the ground, filming the POV shot of the killer stalking the pool. See more »
There is an english-language version (with dutch subtitles) released in the Netherlands under the title Olympic Nightmare which is totally uncut and runs 83mins, instead of the usual 81mins. See more »
Fatal Games is a pretty standard slasher that held my attention throughout and didn't get boring. It's nothing spectacular or unique, but it's quite fun and also gives a nice insight into the life of an athlete. There are plenty of slasher clichés present such as plenty of T&A. There is a moment at the beginning that made me laugh out loud: the athletes are all joking around and throwing food. They throw a sausage at a girl and it lands on top of her skirt. The deaths are OK, but nothing particularly gory. There is one death that looks surprisingly realistic. You are also kept guessing as to who the killer is throughout - I didn't guess and I'm usually good at figuring these things out. When the killer is revealed we get a nice little twist, but I won't spoil it for you.
Watch this if you're a fan of slashers - it's not the best, but it's worth a look. Also recommended if you like this is a similarly themed slasher film called Aerobicide.
