Trivia

The train trestle used in the film is part of the Vernonia-Banks Linear Park Trail. The trestle was burnt down in the 1980s. It was a major trestle used for the railroad to Vernonia's once-running saw mill that was well known as the world's largest at one time. The place that the group is seen meeting a couple times throughout the movie with graffiti on the walls is the site where the saw mill was, which is now known as the "Mill Pond" in Vernonia, Oregon.

Better than expected. Hail to Martin Schenk.
24 April 2004 | by (Mesa, Arizona) – See all my reviews

A movie even thought to be filmed in my hometown would have very low expectations..'til now. From 1998 (when it was filmed)to now, I have waited very long for this to come out. And the anticipation has paid off. This was a very enjoyable film for me to watch..Not just because it was filmed somewhere I knew well but because it looked very professional and a story I could relate to. Martin Schenk did a superb job on this project and he was one of the nicest guys I could ever meet while doing the school scenes at my former high school. When it was shown in the local paper that a movie was going to be filmed there, the first thought was "Oh great..."..I mean this is a town barely hitting 3,000 in population, full of loggers and farmers and now the entertainment industry wants to use our little place for something that actually turns out to be very good. If no one has ever lived in a small community then you will see that the attitude the characters in this movie portray are accurate..I won't get into details and spoil it but if you watched it or going to watch it the way they act was something I could relate with growing up somewhere isolated like that. I'm looking forward to the next Martin Schenk project whenever that will be. A great first time director.
