It was filmed in and around my native Montreal (primarily on Nun's Island). When the film was originally released in English in Montreal (and probably other cities) it was called "the Parasite Murders". I was also friends with the late Kirsten Bishop(ric).

I have vivid memories of seeing the poster which inspired the Vestron Video cover at my local movie theatre when I was 4 or 5 years old. It's the kind of graphic image that stays with you.
