Movie Trivia:
  • The film was inspired by the Agatha Christie novel [i]And Then There Were None[/i].
  • Due to the film being light on violence it received frequent airings on late night television, where it gained a large cult following.
  • The film's French title was Weekend of [i]Terror[/i], while in Germany release was titled [i]The Horror Party[/i].
  • SPOILER: Body Count: Zero.
  • SPOILER: The film originally had a much longer and more twisted ending. In the original script, after Muffy reveals the whole weekend was setup, the guests leave except for Rob, Kit, Chaz, and Nikki who sneak back to the house to prank Muffy for revenge. However when they return, Skip cracks and attempts to kill Muffy in a rage of jealousy. Rob jumps in and saves Muffy, killing Skip in the process. This ending actually was filmed but didn't make final cut as the studio opted for a more upbeat conclusion. Ironically, images from this original ending can still be seen on the DVD case.
