3 of 5 weapons used in the movie were Berettas. The primary dart pistol used by the players is a cross between the Beretta M1951 9mm and Model 70. The trigger guard, disassembly catch and pattern of the handle grip are from Model 70 while the safety, barrel and handle itself are from the 1951. The dart pistol used by Susan around the pool is an imitation Beretta Model 21 (this is also the same dart pistol that was inside the book that Carpenter showed to Marsh) while the firearm used by Gersh to murder his fellow players was an early model (circa 1976) Beretta 92. The third dart gun (used by Nancy at the pool) was an imitation Baby Browning (the same company that made the primary dart pistol made this one as well) while the firearm carried by the college rent-a-cop was a .38 caliber with a 4 inch barrel. It is only shown in dark light so it is impossible to determine the exact manufacturer). 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.
