The murderous fisherman with a hook is back to once again stalk the two surviving teens, Julie and Ray, who had left him for dead, as well as cause even more murder and mayhem, this time at a posh island resort.
Jennifer Love Hewitt,
Freddie Prinze Jr.,
(at around 7 mins) At the start of the movie, Coach Willis (Robert Patrick) is seen standing at the end of a long hall, then begins running down the hall in pursuit of Principal Drake (Bebe Neuwirth). The way he runs, and the way the scene is shot (cutting back and forth between Willis running and Drake trying to open the door) mirrors a similar scene in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), when the T-1000--also played by Patrick--is chasing the Connors and the T-800 down a long hall while they wait for an elevator to open.

(at around 1h 24 mins) When Zeke and Miss Burke are in the car near the end of the film we see Zeke putting on his seatbelt. Then we see Zeke's hands on the steering wheel. In the next shot he is still doing his seatbelt up. See more »

During the cast pictures at the end, the science teacher who was 'killed' in the film is shown very much alive with a patch over his eyes and bandages over his fingers. See more »
In the TV version most of the foul language and objectionable phrases were dubbed out (Most notably in scenes involving the fighting couple, Mr. Furlong says "Phooey" instead of the F word, etc.) but for some scenes different versions were shot including the one where Casey's dad finds the porno and instead of "No more bopping the bishop" he actually says "No more fantasy sessions." And in the locker room scene where Casey says "It must really blow to be you" it is seen from a different angle and Casey says "It must be a show to be you." See more »
This is pretty much the typical slasher, with just one twist. It's also helped by the fact that there's other things going on than just a bunch of killings; there are conflicts between the characters from the very beginning, before the killing starts. This is pretty unique for a slasher, and it definitely helps the film become more interesting. The plot is interesting, well, more interesting than slasher plots usually are. The acting is pretty much all very good, the actors nearly all give top-notch performances. The special effects are good, and mostly pretty convincing. I've heard a lot of people complain that this movie is a ripoff of the Carpenter classic "The Thing". While that film is the better of the two, this is by no means a simple ripoff. The plot in this is not the same, there are just a few striking similarities. I would rather think of it as a reference, something to honor Carpenter's abilities - Rodriguez was inspired by Carpenter, after all. I would recommend this to pretty much anyone who enjoys slasher movies, sci-fi flicks, or crossovers of the two genres. It's very enjoyable; the only thing I hated was that they had casted Elijah "babyface" Wood in one of the leads... oh well. You can't always enjoy all aspects of a film. 7/10
