Part of a 1980s cycle of slasher films with titles and subjects based around commemorative days and events that got made after the box-office success of Halloween (1978). The movies include that film's sequels, Prom Night (1980), Graduation Day (1981), My Bloody Valentine (1981) for Valentine's Day, the spoof Saturday the 14th (1981), The Slumber Party Massacre (1982), April Fool's Day (1986), and Friday the 13th (1980) and its sequels.

Nikki: Muff-child, Moffo, the Muffster, Muffin' stuff...
Harvey: Muff dive.
At the end, Buck sticks the prosthetic to the side of Rob's face. But it's partially covering one eye when he runs into the room with everyone else.
