They take his word for it and decide to break into school one late night to find proof.

Alternate Versions

The 2005 DVD-R release from Slasherpool has a much shorter version of the introduction that shows what happened at the high school ten years ago. The introduction was edited down for pacing and all the gore content is intact. This is the version the director prefers and runs at 89 minutes. See more »

Good for a laugh...
2 January 2007 | by gekarlinSee all my reviews

I happen to be from the same town as the director and this was shot in my school (featuring several of my teachers and friends) but don't think that i will spare it just because of that. This is a nefariously bad movie. The acting is so stiff that it seems like the actors realized what they were doing halfway through and wanted out but they couldn't. Of course i realize that this isn't bona fide actors but still. I wouldn't knock this totally though. The effects are great (particullary the bit with the fire extinguisher) and the quality is crisp but in the end i just couldn't picture this as anything more than a goof.

By the way the actor that played the janitor (Jan Lundmark) died last year and was a good friend of mine. Rest in peace Jan!
