Alternate Versions

The movie had to be re-cut five times in order to achieve an R-rating. Most significant cuts include:
  • Graphic sexual activity during the climactic orgy sequence;
  • The death of Annette (Clementine Ford); the originally scripted scene showed her having her throat slowly pushed onto a pane of glass. The scene was filmed and very brutal, done all in one graphic cut. However, it was later replaced with her character's head split open in the front door. That scene was still trimmed heavily; in unrated versions the top of her head erupts and a splash of blood flies across the doorjamb.
  • Rod (Jesse Bradford)'s death had more blood.
  • Timmy (Keram Malicki-Sánchez)'s death was an on-screen kill that featured gruesome spurting blood.
  • A character's death involving a male character's throat being slashed open at the climatic orgy was nixed for time and MPAA constraints.

"Like a virgin, stabbed for the very first time...."
4 March 2002 | by rob-236See all my reviews

The success of the `Scream' series spawned many clones, this being a reasonable attempt. The makers of such scream clones were obviously faced with a dilemma, how not to stray too far from a winning formula – yet be original at the same time – therefore in this one they give the story a little twist. Here, the preposterous twist is that the killer only kills virgins! – sending the youths in the local village sex mad - in order to save their life, obviously!!.

As bad as it sounds, its not all bad, especially when the absolutely delicious Brittany Murphy is the lead role as the daughter of the local sheriff (Michael Biehn) who is investigating these grisly murders – and guess what, she's a virgin!!. The final twist is pretty good, although if you really think about, the killers motive for hating all virgins isn't really that convincing, Fun though if you take it for what it is, enjoyable rubbish!!
