Inspired by the true story of the Keddie Murders, an unsolved 1981 quadruple homicide that occurred in the town of Keddie in the USA. The murders took place in cabin 28 on the evening of April 11, 1981. The victims were Sue Sharp, her son John and his friend, Dana Wingate. After the crime was discovered Sue's daughter, Tina, was reported missing. Her skull was recovered in 1984 in Camp Eighteen, California.
Shot entirely on location at a 7 cabin resort in Trefeglwys, Mid Wales, which the filmmakers took over for filming in February 2017.
In several scenes, the films 'Night of the Living Dead' (1968) and 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' (1959) play on the TV in the Cabin.
The shot of a running Tina being stopped in her tracks by the headlights of a car is an homage to a shot of Alice (Adrienne King) in 'Friday the 13th' (1980) when she first encounters the character of Mrs Voorhees.
In the UK, the film opened at #3 in the HMV New Releases chart and was the 5th highest placed DTV release in the Official UK DVD chart.
Some of the costumes are modeled on characters in the first four entries of the 'Friday the 13th' series. Most notably, the character Dana wears a denim and yellow T-shirt combination which closely resembles one of the costumes worn by the character Ted in 'Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter' (1984).
The first film produced by Andrew Jones which doesn't include a credit for him as a writer or co-writer.
The mysterious driver is played, in an uncredited cameo, by Producer/Director Andrew Jones. His voice was pitched down to sound deeper and more sinister in post production.
