On the special edition DVD actors commentary track, the actors playing Krug and Weasel claim they terrorized the actresses playing Mari and Phyllis, right down to hinting during the filming of the rape scene that they'd go ahead and actually commit the act if they didn't think the actresses' performances were convincing enough.
The part where they make Phyllis pee her pants? For real.
Old Shame: Fred J Lincoln has gone on record to say that he considers this the worst movie he ever did.
Mari in the remake is a champion swimmer. She's played by Sara Paxton, who previously played a mermaid in Aquamarine.
Monica Potter previously had to deal with serial killers terrorising her family in Saw.
Blooper: Bruises can be seen on Mari and Paige's legs in the hotel room scene. This was because those scenes were filmed after those in the forest, and the actresses sustained the bruises doing their own stunts.
Contractual Purity: Invoked. The filmmakers wanted to cast an actress with this - so that no one could find any Fanservice in the rape scene. Sara Paxton fit the bill, coming from Disney and with a string of family-friendly credits to her name.
Dawson Casting: The teens were played by Sara Paxton (21), Martha MacIsaac (24) and Spencer Treat Clark (22).
