Trivia

In late 1993, the newly reformed Cannon Pictures were going to pick up the film and give it a limited theatrical run. Cannon once again fell into bankruptcy before this could happen. See more »

Goofs

Dennis is shown skinning the corpse of a female. After he finishes with her back he turns her over. When he reaches for her head the "dead" actress closes her eyes when his hands get close. Her eyes had been open the entire scene. See more »

Alternate Versions

The R-rated version sloppily removes most of the gore included in the unrated version. In the process, some of Dennis' speech about his father while skinning the blond prostitute was also trimmed. See more »

Porn Star Gets Revenge
1 July 2001 | by sprmnjSee all my reviews

This is the coolest movie I have ever seen. It takes a porn star and gives her a chance to get vengance on the man whom she took in to her home (she was not a prostitute, but his landlord, like ricki lake) and skinned her while she was still alive. I still want to know exactly how she killed the hotel manager, though. That has always intrigued me.
