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 »
Carpenter claims the progress chart is confidential yet he keeps it in the common room with public access that is shared by 3 student groups instead of his office. 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.
