Trivia:
Many real aspects of Columbine shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Kelbold were used in the film. Most obviously being that the entire film was shot exclusively as a video diary (excluding the massacre itself), as Harris and Dylan did film many videos (later known as "The Basement Tapes") documenting their plan. As of October 2014, "The Basement Tapes" still have not been made available to the public.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: 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
Author: 10ThingsIHateAboutUXtra from Tacoma, WA

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).
