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

Laurie Dann's only fatality during her shooting spree was 8-year old Nicky Crowin. After his death, the school sent home his papers and drawings. Included was a short story that Nicky had written. It was the story of a dog that was shooting people. The dog's name was "Dirty Dan" and the victim's name was "Mickey". Nicky also drew a picture of his mother with a bubble coming out of her mouth. In the bubble was the question "where is my son?" See more »
Its typical of Society today-that all these "experts" know everything and yet no nothing. Here was something acted out in front of them and yet no one had a clue. As the woman Laurie killed herself in the end as the SWAT team moved in it was too late to do anything only eventually make a movie. And the movie is where those involved know exactly what made her go nuts because she fit the MO. Whatever occurred in her past before meeting the guy at the restaurant where she worked had it seems been hushed up. Which at least shows you need to know about your future partner before commitment! The husband was out of it long ago when he realised just how crazy she was-in fact he told the police he was scared of her even before she attacked him with an ice pick! Probably the reason for divorce was "irretrievable breakdown of marriage"-he tried to make it work but she screwed it up with increasingly odd behaviour like filling the fridge up with shoes! For some reason she told the police he'd raped her but this was probably a fabrication. There were no children and that was probably a small mercy. Amazingly only one child died after her rampage at the school-which seems to be a frequent occurrence in America
