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.

User Reviews

One of the better horror movies that came out in recent years
11 November 2001 | by arySee all my reviews

The story of a little town, Cherry Falls, whose virgins are being stalked and murdered one by one by a mysterious psychopath who wants revenge for an unpunished crime that took place in the same town years ago.One of the better horror films that came out in late 2000, Cherry Falls is the typical case of a nice movie that doesn't get the recognition it deserves.The film didn't even get a theatrical release and was exhibited on TV by USA Network.Thanks to a really original director who knows how to make pictures, Geoffrey Wright, a cast formed by talented and decent actors and a storyline that really holds the tension and keeps you guessing,this gripping and outstanding thriller can now be appreciated by horror fans on VHS or DVD.Brittany Murphy comes out great as the main character, she is so sweet and beautiful, on her way to become a movie star in the years to come, specially after her incredible performance in Don't Say a Word, so does Michael Biehn and specially Jay Mohr, who is devilishly funny and bitter.Look no further for a great slasher thriller: Cherry Falls is a good choice!
