According to an interview with producer John Dunning at "The Terror Trap", special-effects expert Thomas R. Burman and director J. Lee Thompson were "splashing [fake] blood all over the place" on the set. Dunning said, "The cameraman came to me and said, 'John, you've gotta slow J. Lee down. He's throwing too much blood around, and the camera lenses are always covered in it!'. He'd take a bucket of blood and whip it around. I had to go to him and tell him to tone it down so we could clean up the crew". Lisa Langlois said in an interview with "The Terror Trap", "That's something he [Thompson] was very famous for on that set, slinging lots of fake blood all around!". See more »

Bernadette O'Hara, do you have any idea what time it is? Where are you going?
Well, I, I was just going up to the village to meet some of the kids at the inn.
You mean the second home for the Crawford top 10, don't you?

The 1986 RCA/Columbia VHS release features the original print. The 2004 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment DVD (with the "birthday girl" cover) uses a print with library music tracks and some differences in sound editing (possibly a temp soundtrack from the original production), though the closing Syreeta song is intact. The 2009 Anchor Bay/Starz Home Entertainment DVD (with the "shish kebab guy" cover) has the theatrical soundtrack, as does the Blu-ray from Mill Creek. See more »
This is the story of Ginny, the aftermath of a car accident she was involved in and that cause her mother's death. It all started going bad before that, divorced parents, living with an abusive mother, Ginny wasn't popular, didn't have any friends, all in all a childhood to forget. Due to the car accident, she undergone extensive brain surgery, the consequence was frequent blackouts. Once at the Crawford Academy, she finally started getting along with the popular kids but not for long because they all started to mysteriously disappear. Who's to blame, are Ginny's blackouts related to this events??
I consider this to be a very good slasher movie. The cast is as good as it gets in this genre. The killings are original and imaginative. The death of Dr. David Faraday (Glenn Ford) is particularly bloody and Ginny's brain surgery is also pretty graphic and worth watching. The only negative aspect is the exaggerated amount of "twists", it is a good plot but taken a little to far in my opinion. Still a must watch slasher.
