Many posters for the film utilized a marketing gimmick that had been used for Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960). They featured a warning that read: "Because of the bizarre nature of the party, no one will be seated during the last ten minutes . . . Pray you're not invited". See more »

Winston! Winston! Winston, just stop it, bad boy. Sit down. Sit!
Oh, Mrs. Patterson.
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 »
Bernadette (Lesleh Donaldson) is almost strangled and relieved to see someone she knows. But, it is a short relief as she is slashed with a razor. So opens a classic slasher film.
This is Little House on the Prairie's Melissa Sue Anderson's first starring role in a film, and, ignoring Skatetown U.S.A., her first film outside of TV.
Someone upsets Virginia (Anderson) and he is dispatched quickly. By whom? Is it the creepy guy Alfred (Jack Blum) that hangs around the Top Ten? Soon another gets a weight dropped on his balls with disastrous results.
Well, at least we know who the murderer is with a little pruning, a tasty shish kabob, and a quick dip, as we saw who did two of them - or did we? It is certainly a mystery why there are no bodies.
The shower scene was very unsatisfying.
