Trivia

The infamous hazing scene was shot at the old Americana Theater (out of operation at the time) located at 2200 Hancock Drive, just off Burnet Road in Austin, Texas. It is now the Yarborough Branch of the city library, but still retains some of the original exteriors and signs from this movie's era. See more »

Goofs

When the guys go to buy beer at the gas/convenience store, they pull in about 20 feet away from the building. When the two get out and one stands guard the car is shown next to the store, and then when they run back to the car it is again about 20 feet away. The gun wielding man comes up to the car as they get in and then when they pull away the car is suddenly facing the road. See more »

Where's the point?
6 March 2002 | by efurrerSee all my reviews

This movie had absolutely no point. No plot, no climax.. A buncha kids get out of school and go to a party and do a lot of drinking and drugs. Flat liner from beginning to end. Good depiction of the 70's.
