Trivia

Forbes Riley realized that there was no one checking continuity, so she made an effort to write down what wardrobes were being worn in which scenes to ensure the movie was consistent. See more »

Goofs

Doreen gets killed when the killer slices her forehead lengthwise; albeit it's not possible for someone to die like that, seeing as a self-inflicted wound like this would not be too severe just to kill someone. See more »

Cheesy horror flick
8 August 1999 | by wyatt8See all my reviews

It's a poor film, but I must give it to the lead actress in this one....Francine Forbes. She appeared to be acting the least and I personally thought she was kind of cute. Too bad she only appears in one other film in the database. Besides that, the film is filled with laughable gore and fakey death scenes. People get stabbed and they GUSH like 2 gallons of blood! But, if you like to watch poor horror films, I recommend this one highly.
