In the second scene Susan ducks as Schooster and Charlie shoot at her thus they shoot and kill one another. Yet on Carpenter's progress chart "S. Swayse" (note the misspelling with an S in place of the Z) is credited with J. Schooster's kill. See more »
A small gem with good acting and no jazzy special effects
The first thing I notice when I watch "TAG" is that the film seems to have been made on TV tape....it has that feel. Sound and lighting are basic, and it's clear from the outset that this movie was made on a shoestring budget.
It is the acting that brings this film through. Linda Hamilton studied Lauren Bacall very closely, and makes a credible run at a "To Have and Have Not" moment, and Robert Carradine hams it up as a budding ace reporter. Bruce Abbott is darkly psychotic as the bad guy. Hard to believe that Linda married this guy!
Worth a look at least once, if you can find it.
