Believe it or not, the school used in the film was my elementary school. I was in the school at the time they filmed it. I had NO idea till many years later when I saw it playing on syfi. I think they must have done it during spring break. Another freaky thing is the main characters last name is a slight variation of my own last name - so it was pretty surreal watching this and hearing them yell his name all the time.
That is cool. I got this movie in two pack from Wal-Mart. Great movie. A brain dead movie that you can set back and enjoy.
Great write up.
