The "look" of the killer was based on the comic book character "The Shadow", not as is often thought Italian 'giallo' cinema. See more »
The jigsaw puzzle used has blood still fresh and red after forty years of wearing out; albeit around the time the film takes place, wouldn't the blood be brown? See more »
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king's horses and all the king's men. Couldn't put the pieces together again.

Available in an R-rated version with alternate footage and brief omissions of gore: includes black underwear on the skinny dipping scene, a less gory shot to the Dean's head at the end and the gore omission is in the elevator with a shot of the left arm being sliced off. See more »
I have fond memories of sitting on my living room floor watching this, along with other `bad movies' i.e. `Night of the Lepus', `The Hand' or most any movie that makes it to the Sci-Fi channel with my mom and two younger brothers.
There is a lot of nudity, perhaps the nudity was not necessary, but you have to look at the other `slasher' movies of this period.was it necessary for nudity in the `Friday The 13th' or `Halloween' movies? Not really, unless you are going to go with the whole `if you have sex while you're a teenager you're going to die a horribly painful death' thing that many people have suggested, (not regarding this movie specifically, but the `slasher' genre) then I suppose it would be necessary to prove that point.
In all honesty, I think we should go back to a simpler time and have more movies like this one.funny, disgusting, a little bit scary, just an overall insane experience. Not every movie has to have a point or life altering motive, sometimes it is nice to watch without thinking.
Overall, for what it is, it is worth watching. By the way, the best part of the movie is the end!
