Storyline

Newlywed Laurie Wade finds her marriage, and eventually the rest of her life, shattered by her deep-rooted psychotic behavior. She goes from brief "short-circuits" to overtly murderous behavior. The film never tries to explain the cause of her mental collapse (except for a hint or two) but instead takes us into her frightening state of mind. Written by Jonathan A. Cullum

based on a true story
28 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was based on a true story about Laurie Dann who shot a classroom full of children. If I remember correctly and I may not(lol) The Boomtown Rats based their song "I Don't Like Mondays" on her story. Being a teacher, when the teacher says "Why didn't she shoot me?" I cried because I think that's the way I would feel if someone did that to my students. It's sad that her situation had to get to that point for her to get the help she so desperately needed. It reminds me of a case in PA where a woman shot people in the Springfield Mall. She was mentally unstable but she kept being released and then she was able to obtain a gun. I wonder what happened to the real Laurie? If anyone knows please post it, thank you.
