A reporter investigating the bizarre death of a woman who leaped from a building in flames finds herself mixed up in a cult of witches who are making her part of their sacrificial ceremony during the Christmas season.
Screenwriter Woody Keith incorporated several ideas and scenarios that he had originally envisioned for his previous film, Society (1989), but had been unable to fit into the storyline. Ironically, this film's U.S. release would predate that of Society by nearly two years.
With an attitude like that you're going to lose your job.
Kim: Oh yeah, well then fuck my attitude, fuck the job, and fuck you!
After Kim leaves the office Christmas party, she stumbles out into the street and sees Ricky standing beside his parked car to her right. The license plate on the car is backwards, which normally would indicate that the shot was reversed in order for it to match up with the direction Kim was looking. However, all other text in that shot is NOT backwards! Correctly displayed is the word "restaurant" on the green sign in the background, the word "Dresden" on the green awning next to that sign, the name "Mustang" and the Ford name and emblem on the back of the car. The only thing flipped is the license plate, which means that it was done physically on the actual car and is not an editing trick.
The 1996 UK video version (titled "Bugs") was cut by 8 secs by the BBFC. A shot of a man hanging by his nipples was removed.
