The movie's ending was just one of several filmed.
Not sure why
there were talks of a sequel, but at one point, producers approached Kristy Swanson
to star in the next chapter of the series "Petals on the Wind"

When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
In the book, Cathy is in the attic as Chris is downstairs stealing money form his mother and her new husband.
Before all this, Cathy was going to steal from her mother but she went into the room and saw her stepfather. Cathy had kissed him! Later on Chris was stealing and overheard the mother and stepfather talking and he heard the stepfather talk about the kiss... Chris went in the attic and was yelling at her for what she had done..
Suddenly he pulls Cathy down from the window sill and Chris started to rape Cathy. This was an important part of the book and I was disappointed that this scene was not in the movie... Although it would have been very awkward!
Missing from the movie is the scene where Cathy and Chris escaped for the night and went swimming in the lake.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
