Trivia

While it was largely ignored upon its release in 1964, the film's showing on Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988) in 1993 revitalized interest in it, so much so that it was given a premiere showing in Huntington, West Virginia (where it was filmed) in 1994. The premiere was attending by several surviving cast and crew members. See more »

Goofs

When one of the paramedics asks if they can take away the body at the scene of the first murder, a woman in the crew laughs quite audibly off camera. See more »

I think we've just found Waldo!
22 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

This campy whodunit is an example of the fun that was the 1960s. There's a distinct "Manos: The Hands of Fate" flavor to the film as we have a shrill, overacting female lead, a creepy Torgo-esquire janitor, an authoritarian cop, a jaunty soundtrack that never fails to entertain, various shots of teens necking, and plenty of Southern accents to go around. Some of the scenes are superfluous (such as just about any scene with the character Curly), yet there is little denying that overall the film is quite enjoyable. Perhaps most fun of all, though, is the unforgettable character of Mikey. He's the androgynous, whiny teen that you just can't help but love. I give the movie a score of 6/10, and the MST3K version a 9/10.
