Trivia

Movie producers at Millennium Studios secured permission from Richmond Public Schools to film interior and exterior scenes at Thomas Jefferson High School during Easter Break and the week following. Thomas Jefferson High School shared the building and grounds at the time with the Governor's School for Government and International Studies (GSGIS), a regional school for gifted students. RPS failed to mention this, and the fact that the two schools shared different schedules, to movie producers. RPS also failed to mention that a movie would be filmed on the site to GSGIS administration. As a result, Cherry Falls started filming at the end of the school day, only to be interrupted an hour later when the GSGIS students were released from class. To secure the set, doors had been locked and hallways had been blocked, preventing students from exiting. The confusion was eventually cleared, and the producers provided GSGIS administration with a synopsis of the plot, and details about the time-line, scheduling, and deal with RPS. School administration then included the synopsis in a letter to concerned parents. The synopsis failed to mention the satirical slant of the storytelling, and instead provided the plot as a serious storyline. Parents then complained that RPS allowed porn movies to be filmed on school property. See more »

Alternate Versions

The movie had to be re-cut five times in order to achieve an R-rating. Most significant cuts include:
  • Graphic sexual activity during the climactic orgy sequence;
  • The death of Annette (Clementine Ford); the originally scripted scene showed her having her throat slowly pushed onto a pane of glass. The scene was filmed and very brutal, done all in one graphic cut. However, it was later replaced with her character's head split open in the front door. That scene was still trimmed heavily; in unrated versions the top of her head erupts and a splash of blood flies across the doorjamb.
  • Rod (Jesse Bradford)'s death had more blood.
  • Timmy (Keram Malicki-Sánchez)'s death was an on-screen kill that featured gruesome spurting blood.
  • A character's death involving a male character's throat being slashed open at the climatic orgy was nixed for time and MPAA constraints.

So ridiculous that it becomes enjoyable
7 January 2003 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

I went to see this movie with the idea it would be total crap. For that thought: I was not totally disappointed, but because I had that thought the movie was also enjoyable in some weird ways.

The story is about a killer who is slashing virgins from a local high school. After 'Scream', 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' and 'Urban Legend' it is not the most original idea. The movie rips all kind of ideas from those movies. The whole "slashing high school students"-concept from 'Scream', a visit to a very quiet place from 'I Know What You Did Last Summer', a scene with a certain aggressive artifact hitting a door from 'The Shining'. It didn't bother me much because it was all ridiculous anyway. All the clichés from the movies above, the same kind of characters, a revealed secret, and of course the killer you "never thought" it would be.

Like I said the whole thing was kind of ridiculous. There were scenes I really enjoyed because of the stupid events on screen. One of the scenes involves a whole group trying to lose their virginity at the same time on some kind of party. You think it is nonsense, which it is, but scenes around that event are quite funny. I had the idea it was made that "stupid" on purpose to give the movie some kind of comic release, but my guess is there were better ways to do that. The comedy in a movie like 'Scream 3' works better, although the movie wasn't that much better. In this movie sometimes it succeeds, if that was the goal of the scenes. If it wasn't, I still enjoyed that parts so it didn't matter much anyway. If you are going to watch it, just think you will see absolutely nothing at all, and you might enjoy it a little.
