Trivia
  • Was the second film created under the Ghost-Hat Productions name, however was the first film completed.

  • The film was produced in part by BOLTONBROS.CO, a production company co-founded by Jeff Bell prior to the foundation of Ghost-Hat.

  • The character Jerry Burr had a different last name in the original edit of the film. His name “Jerry Dingle” was changed during a 2004 re-edit of the film. Since the actors were no longer available, any mention of the name was simply cut from dialogue and a new one added in the credits.

  • The film was written, filmed, and edited in less than 2 weeks. It was a final project for a high school class that needed to be presented at the end of the semester. The original edit was completed a day before it was due.

  • Houses belonging to friends of the cast and crew were used as the estates of both Vinnie and Tom.

  • The idea for the movie came about after visiting the wooden trail seen at the end, a month prior to production. Onsite, director Jeff Bell loved the location and said he’d like to film a movie there. When time came to make this movie, the story was written to work for that location.

  • The package of cocaine was actually a bag of sugar.
