Janine: FUCK YOU!
When the killer uses chainsaw on his victim, it's obvious that there is no chain, which is made more obvious when he goes for the kill and there is no blood and chainsaw doesn't do anything.
The original R-rated VHS of the film released by New Horizons Home Video runs 75 minutes. There was also an unrated version released to video by the same company, which runs 80 minutes.
