Trivia

During the scene where Calvin and Andre go shooting with Chris, Andre says "natrual selection" while Calvin is firing. "Natural selection" was Eric Harris's (Colombine shooter) favourite law. basically, it states that nature gets rid of the weak organisms, while supplying the stronger organisms. See more »

Goofs

In the scene dated July 31, 2000, Cal is shown going to the orthodontist to have his bottom braces removed. However, in the first scene, dated June 23, 2000, you can clearly see that Cal's bottom teeth have no braces when he moves in to speak into the camera. See more »

Die and learn...
17 October 2003 | by (Tacoma, WA) – See all my reviews

The thing that makes this movie so scary is the way that it portrays Andre and Calvin as (relatively) normal guys. These are definitely not people who want to become professional filmmakers since they goof around in front of the camera, forget scripted lines, etc. They are only making the video as a diary to show 'the survivors' how normal their lives were. Their parents just think the guys are filming for a family home video. By researching other kids attacks on their schools, Andre and Calvin learn what not to do and they inform (usually in a silly 'This Old House' kind of way) any potential 'Andres and Calvins' who might be watching this video how to make bombs, get weapons, and not get caught before Zero Day (the day of the attack).
