Trivia

The main house in the film is supposed to be at the top of an ocean bluff, but the house they actually filmed at was simply on top of a hill. The shots showing the house from behind on top of the bluff were actually filmed at a seaside trailer park with a specially-constructed house facade. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 28 mins) The amount of blood on Jessica's knife changes (and even disappears) between shots. See more »

Vrooom-vroooom.
9 September 2001 | by MigsCKSee all my reviews

Completely awful TV-movie sequel which, if nothing else, has the fantastic Aron Whatshisface as the young "Different Strokes-esque" grandson Brian. Not only is he frighteningly pleasant, but he does happen to pick up a chainsaw in the basement and use it to make VROOOOOM-VROOOM noises. Ultimately, the chainsaw turns itself on and Brian's scary cheeks wobble as he tears apart the place only to be halted by the sheer strength of his grandmother (and some other old dear who fell down the stairs - brilliant!) and a huge bit of pipe she grabs from the wall. Possibly one of the best scenes in the history of movies. If only this was the plot of the whole movie and not a brief minute of film.
