Goofs

When Cory shows up at the unfinished house to meet Carl after Richie dies, as she opens the sliding glass doors, it is late in the day, but still a lot of sunlight. The very next shot is of Carl's face, with Cory entering through the sliding glass doors in the background, and it is pitch black outside. See more »

I was an extra in this film...
21 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

John Evens Jr. High School in Greeley Colorado had a casting call prior to the filming for extras. If I remember right we got 25 dollars for each days work and we got fed.

Greeley was pretty much the perfect place for this movie. There was a huge teen violence problem there. even at age 12 I carried a pistol and roamed the city at will with other kids fearing attack from gangs of older teens. Drugs were everywhere.

The movie captured all that stupidity plus the Apathy and ignorance of the adults. I loved the scenes where we rioted in the Circus tent styled John Evens Jr. High School......made it hard to attend class the following year.

History has proved that the film makers knew what kind of society America would become...Cookie cutter homes,strip malls and teen murderers......Art predicts life.
