Storyline

The plot follows a boy by the name of David, who is suffering bullying in the extreme at school. The school will do nothing to stop it, and instead blame David for his bullying. Pushed over the edge, David takes a video camera everywhere with him at school, recording how his tormentors have made him. He goes home, and recording a final message to his mother, puts a gun in his mouth, and blows his head off. On top of the bullying, David was also following in his father's footsteps, a man who entered a school and killed everyone in it. On hearing the shot, the mother rushes to the room, to find the video, with the faces of the bullies on it. After watching the video, highly psyched, the mother takes the gun and goes to the school Parent's Night. Once there she confronts the school headmaster... Written by Dave Wilson <davemw@yahoo.com>

Comment in modern horror
20 June 2002 | by smeghead101See all my reviews

What a pleasure to see horror about what it used to be. A scare and a shock, but moreover a bit of commentary on society, rather than simply the 'slasher' ethic imposed by 'Scream' and its cousins.
