Did You Know?


The script for this film was originally written with the title "Holiday Nightmare" and was to be shot on a yacht at Catalina Island in 1974 and Robert Blake was set to star. Then Blake was signed to do the TV series "Baretta" and there was a clause in his contract that he could not do any other projects. It took twenty six years for the writer-director to finally get the financing in the year 2000. But, the producer insisted that the location be in Tehachapi. So, it had to be re-written from a yacht to a mountain cabin. Then Eric Roberts was to do the lead, but canceled out because of a scheduling conflict. John Savage was cast in his place at the last minute and the movie finally got made. See more »

Very interesting and different film.
9 May 2006 | by Angel_Tiffy_WingSee all my reviews

This is the most original story I've seen for an independent, low budget film. It is not just a suspense/thriller but also a psychological character study of the mentally disturbed kidnapper who holds two couples hostage. This guy is played by John Savage who once again gives a deep and believable performance. All the actors are good and the ending was a real surprise. An excellent little movie. The writer/director Robert J. Hyatt did a really good job of presenting his story. It is obviously professionally photographed, edited and the music score fits perfectly without being intrusive. Another stand out performance is Diana Barton as the greedy wife of the late Trevor Goddard. I'd like to see more of her in films. There are only five actors in the whole movie as our main focus and not a weak performance from any of them. Two thumbs up for this one. I highly recommend it.
