R | | Horror, Mystery
A suspense horror film set in a small coastal town where, after a series of gory murders commited by mobs of townspeople against visiting tourists, the corpses begin to come back to life.
The shot where Paul Haskel (Robert Boler) pulls into the gas station next to Sheriff Dan Gillis (James Farentino) was shot from inside Dan's Jeep, and required the crew to build a track across the inside of the vehicle for the camera to move.
You can try to kill me, Dan. But you can't. You can only make me dead.
When the young female hitchhiker is taken from the truck, she is thrown onto the muddy ground. Her face is covered in mud, before the rock is smashed onto her face. Later when we see the videos of Dobb's "murders and creations" the young female hitchhiker is being held down on the hood of the truck, and her face is clean before they smash the rock down on her face.
The end credit music is different on all video and the recent DVD release when compared to the theatrical and the HBO/Cinemax airing in the '80s. The theatrical and HBO had on the end credits the suspense music from the film, which then changes to a Glenn Miller jazz score, while the suspense music is heard in the background, creeping up faintly, until when the cast names start rolling, then the suspense music takes over, ending exactly when the credit ends. However, all video release of this, as well as the DVD, the end credit music is now the rehash of the beginning credit sequence music, you can tell its tacked in, for they fade the music early when the credit ends.
