The TAG game is modeled after Killer by Steve Jackson Games. Killer refers to the scenario used as the Circle of death. one of the rules specified in Killer is that the game can be limited to certain hours of the day. TAG is played from an unspecified time in the morning until midnight. The schedule on the TAG Victim Profile begins at 8Am so 8AM presumably would be the latest the game would start and run to midnight. See more »
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 »
At a college campus the latest craze is a game where people are given targets to chase after with fake guns loaded with plastic darts. However, the reigning champion so upset over losing decides to use real bullets instead and continue on with the game. Fast paced film with an appealing cast and a fair amount of suspense, style and humor. Also proves tons of violence is not necessary to make a good horror / thriller.
Rated PG; Violence.
