The BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) demanded a total of 24 minutes worth of cuts to the film before its release in the UK. At the time, the BBFC had a virtually zero tolerance to sexual violence, and the use of a crossbow. See more »
Red is wearing a black leather jacket when he and Fargo confront Brenda in the warehouse. After Brenda kills Fargo and Red finds his body, he is still wearing the jacket as he falls upon the bear traps that cause the injuries leading to his death. However, when Jake sees the two strung-up bodies in the warehouse, Red's jacket is gone and he has a bear trap clamping his right forearm. Had Brenda removed Red's jacket afterwards, she would have had to remove the bear trap to do it. See more »

The film was rejected for cinema in 1984 and later for video in 1986 by the BBFC. It was eventually released in 1987 after nearly 12 minutes of distributor edits which reduced the rape scene and heavily cut the climactic crossbow fight. The BBFC then removed a further 1 min 4 secs from the movie due to public concern over the use of crossbows in the UK. See more »
Brenda (Linda Blair), along with her high school friends, feels its a good idea to steal some hoodlum's car & total it after her deaf/mute sister walks into the middle of the road and almost gets hit by them. This doesn't sit well for the decidedly homo-erotic gang of 'bad boys' lead with sadistic panache by Jake, so they decide to rape Brenda's sister which leads to her seeking vengeance in this 80's exploitation staple.
Some might say that this film is simple-minded and while there's truth to that and it's a valid point, this film is also a pretty good piece of trash that wears it's exploitation badge on it's sleeve. I admire that and it's a fun enough seedy little ride that lets me excuse Blair's terribly campy acting throughout. Director Danny Stienmann does a bang-up job and if he'll just do another film of this caliber I promise i'll forgive him for "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" Oh yeah, and I have to give props to John Vernon, as well, as his part, though rather small, is still greatness.
Eye Candy: Linda Blair, Rebecca Perle, and Suzee Slater get topless; Linnea Quigley shows boobs and a hint of muff (but it's in a very unerotic scene); various extras show tits, ass & bush in the obligatory shower scene
