Quote: "Sean Cunningham called and asked if I would come in and read for this policeman. I had no idea what kind of movie it was, except that they said it was 'sort of a horror film.' So for one week, went out there and did all the scenes. I never saw an entire script, I only saw sides of my scene. And my scenes were like, 'There's trouble down at camp! Where are we going?'|
When we shot the final scene, to me, even at the time, when I say, 'Ma'am, we didn't find any boy,' that meant here comes number two. I'm thinking, 'Mmm-hmm!' I asked Sean how to play it, and he said, 'Draw yourself over to the camera here.' You know when a director is going in close it's an obvious setup, I almost did it sort of tongue in cheek. Because I had a feeling that they didn't want it to end here. I would laugh about it with my friends after the film came out: 'I knew there was going to be a sequel!'" - pg. 38, Crystal Lake Memories
