Trivia

The films title for its release in Spain was Creando el terror, which means "Creating the Terror." See more »

Goofs

The "tombstones" used in the cemetery scene are obviously Styrofoam props. They have no text engravings and lack the polished appearance of an authentic monument. See more »

Alternate Versions

The UK version is known as The Scaremaker. Even though the film isn't full of gore, it is cut by 16 seconds. Some of the cuts are:
  • Benson's stabbing is cut, you see him stabbed once before dieing.
  • The murder of Jane, in the squash court. It shows the bear attack, then cuts to her all bloody, none seen coming out a wound.
  • Doesn't focus on Jane's body hung up in the shower's.
  • Trish's death in the Summer House is cut, not as much blood is seen. and
  • The ending where the killer stabs Teddy, who is trying to help Dawn, it is not seen, so it is left unclear what has happened.

The Scaremaker (1984 - UK Video Title)
3 October 2003 | by PCJ1See all my reviews

Well, I came across this little number in Greenwich at the Exchange shop and although the sleeve was an awfully painted picture that "bears" little to no resemblence to any scene in the film I thought I'd pay the £3 and give it a twirl. I'm glad I did. It's good little slasher flick compared to most of the low budget teen horrors of the time. The plot is a little thin as are the not-so-special effects and the killer's stupid costume, but all this adds to the charm. It's the kind of film you'd get from the video man on a friday night and watch with your cousins. And there's loads of almost familar faces that we've all seen in horror films from the era including "Vicky" from "Friday The 13th Part 2". Watchable if you can actually find this title anywhere anymore.
