Trivia

In scene 2 Susan's target Schooster played by Steven Peterman and Jim Veneziano shoot one another when Susan ducks. The credits simply list Veneziano as an anonymous "TAG player" suggesting his character was never given a name; but towards the end at the TAG party he is referred to as Charlie. This suggests he was given a name why he was not credited is unknown. Moreover the progress chart contains a C Sterns thus he may have been Charlie Sterns. See more »

Goofs

In the final scene the stair bulkhead on the roof of the building (Kerckhoff Hall) is at the back of the building. Gersh is standing on this bulkhead when he is shot and falls off the building. Thus he should have fallen to the back or side of the building, yet his body is shown lying on the sidewalk in front of the entrance building. See more »

2 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

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.
