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.

You gotta see it!
27 May 2002 | by brainspoonSee all my reviews

This movie rocks. I loved every second of it. Very scary and funny, with some great performances and a clever script. The killer is a great addition to the scream psycho pantheon. Britany Murphy is very good in this, as is Jay More and Candy Clarke. The movie is well paced and never boring. There is gore for the hounds, sex for the horns, and some cool twists along the way. The story is much more interesting then typical slasher fare, and would have played well to a theatrical audience. They should have sent it out instead of dumping it on video.

I highly recommend this as the best in the post Scream neo slashers of the 1990's.
