FILM 1534: DISTURBING BEHAVIOR
TRIVIA: Nutter did wanted to release his director's cut at the time when movie was released on DVD but he wasn't allowed by MGM to do that. Director's cut was never released although there is a fanedit of the film available online which has all the deleted scenes and original ending from DVD edited back into the film making it 103 minutes long and is much closer to the director's cut.
Early in the film the sheriff refers to an up coming football game with Knights Ridge. Knights Ridge was the setting of Beautiful Girls (1996), which was also written by this films writer, Scott Rosenberg.
The personifications of good and evil in the town are named Newberry and Caldicott, which happen to be the names of the two prestigious book prizes awarded by the American Library Association for Excellence in Children's Books (one for novels and one for picture books).
