The film began development in 1968 whereas the original setting was to have three psychos, but it would have critical ratings as low as 6.3%, so they used one, which the rating for the film was 54%. The film was really in development hell for about ten years, and has been known as a rumor in 1964-1967, but has been fully developed in 1968, where they began filming in 1969 after production.
The filming took a year to complete, since they didn't have enough money to have a professional do the directing after the film was released in theaters, soon they released in 1970, it was rated as 54%, a not so cultish classic.
