Though it would have been a perfectly solid film without the twist ending, somehow the ludicrous reveal packs a soap operatic wallop that underlines just how vindictive and vapid the world these girls inhabit truly is. Melissa Sue Anderson is exquisite, the kills are simple yet effective, and the whole thing still feels fresh as a blood spattered daisy today. One of the great underrated slashers.
Upon further viewing and reflection I see what a genius and hurting film this is. I was put off by what I thought was an undeveloped large cast, but the focus is all on main girl Virginia, how her mistake is based on that fact that she was born. Her mother's fixation with wealth and being the best not only killed her but passed on to her daughter. It will take a few sits for it to sink it, but the title is the key.
