A shot of dead Judy was cut by the MPAA for being way too gory.
Felissa Rose and Jonathan Tiersten had a puppy love romance whilst on set.
Most of the food on the set was made in the actual camps kitchen.
The water balloon scene was actually shot twice. The first time there was a light drizzle so they had to scrap the whole thing. The second time was after Felissa and I had our big (real life) fight and she wasn't even speaking to me. I remember when I had to console her it was very awkward. To this day, she is not a woman to be crossed.
John Dunn who played Kenny cut his hand when filming the scene about the overturned boat and had to be rushed to hospital.

Jane Krakowski of Ally McBeal was the origional choice for the role of Judy but turned it down because her death scene was too violent.
Filmed in upstate NY for a budget of only $350,000.

Felissa Rose had to wear a tight bra to make herself look flatter. She still owns the bra to this day!

When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Judy's actual murder and not the shadows portraying it.
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.

The early video version has scenes that were deleted during mastering of the DVD version. Particularly when the dead body that is found when the guy on the beach has to clean up and he over turns the canoe, they only show a brief glimpse of the dead guy, in the original version you see the whole thing. The scene where the guys are on the pier and go skinny dipping trying to convince the girls to jump in with them, they totally deleted the full frontal nudity.
