Back of Box:
10pm. The night before Walnut Lake's neighborhood supermarket closes its doors forever. The owners and night crew
have a long shift ahead of them...longer than they think! Ace check-out girl, Jennifer (played by "Lethal Weapon's"
Renee Estevez), has a deranged ex-boyfriend who's fresh out of prison. When he appears outside, weird things start happening.
The phone lines are cut, and the night crew starts dying...one by one, in the most gruesome ways imaginable.
An ex-cop is trying to find out who the killer is and what
possessed him to start the bloody rampage. But is it the ex-boyfriend or is it someone else?

Filming Location(s): Bell,
Alternate Tagline(s): If this one does
not scare you, you're already dead! and A new dimension in terror.
The town where the film is set; Walnut Lake, Michigan, actually
exists. Director Scott Spiegel, Bruce Campbell, and the Raimi brothers all grew up in the Walnut Lake area.
The film was shot in an actual grocery store in Bell, California during the evenings when
the store was closed.
The Back of Box description on this
particular DVD release is completely wrong. It's not the night before they close forever, it's actually like a week
before, Jennifer is not played by Lethal Weapon's Renee Estevez, she's played by Elizabeth Cox, and there is absolutely
not one single ex-cop in the whole film, let alone one trying to figure everything out. Bruce Campbell plays a cop in
the last two minutes of the film, but certainly not long enough to be mentioned on the front cover.
Although the film occurs in a single
night, the film actually took a number of weeks to make. Since the film takes place in an actual grocery store
the TV Guide magazines at the check out stands change periodically.
