Did You Know?

Trivia

The shots of the faceless shooter were originally shot for a promo. It was shown on the high school's TV Network and was made to attract new people to the project. It wasn't decided until late in post-production that some of this material would actually work in the movie. See more »

Goofs

Devon's hair changes lengths from scene to scene. This is due to the long delays between filming days throughout production. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the Director's Cut version: At the end of the credits a scene where Devon points his gun into a coffin and shoots towards the camera is included. This is the only remnants of an early concept during Pre-Production that was originally thought up to cut down the on-screen gore. It was shot at a funeral home with a real coffin. See more »
