    It's insane how good these two were at their roles, if I wasn't as familiar as I am with the Columbine shooting I'd have easily believed this was real footage. Bit of a shame none of them pursued acting further.

      As far as I know they're not "actors" in that sense, the director found people who "felt" real. A good chunk of the movie is actually improvised, they just had a loose script. It's similar to the kids who were in another found footage movie called The Blair Witch Project. Although technically in that case they WERE trained actors they just didn't do anything else beyond that.

      @@voteZDLR Ohhh, that'd make a ton of sense, kind of what I've heard referred to as "natural actors". My favorite colombian filmmaker Víctor Gaviria actually uses these a ton, he even made a documentary called "How to get birds to act" about one of his movies where the whole cast were a bunch of kids/criminals from the streets basically playing themselves. Come to think about it, I really love this technique.

    The idea that Eric was the mastermind/leader is a common misconception. They were both equally engaged in the plan. It could even be argued Dylan was even more invested than Eric, to be honest. He certainly was the one who seemed to be having the most fun on that day, you can hear him whooping and hollering where Eric was mostly quiet.

    My ex husbands cousin was a sophomore at Columbine when it happened. She was never in direct danger, but I believe she knew at least a couple of the victims. That poor girl suffered for years with a meth habit she picked up in the aftermath and she nearly died. She got pregnant and was able to get clean for her baby. As far as I know she’s still doing well today, but she told me at one point that she’ll always have deep scars and lasting trauma from that day.

I have brought it up in conversation many times over the last 20 years, telling people it was the most messed up thing i have ever watched. Only by watching this i now realise that it was a movie and they were actors.
    I remember just being absolutely stunned at the end, even though i knew it was going to happen you just thought it wouldn't, because they seemed like decent young guys who just hated school. You are never really convinced that they were actually going to go through with it, which made it all the more shocking.

    such an unforgettable masterpiece - a film that could have easily come off as exploitive, opportunistic and “too soon” feels authentic and grounded in it’s depiction of high school alienation. one of the scariest movies i’ve seen to this day.. and mainly due to the performances of Andre and Calvin, who are so scarily convincing for two kids with essentially no acting experience whatsoever. it really drives home the fact that no one really knows what bubbling beneath the surface of angsty, misunderstood teens - it makes you connect with them, hoping that their plan is a sick fantasy and they won’t go through with it.. which makes the last ten minutes so much more horrifyingly grim. the repressed anger and undertones of a homoerotic relationship between Andre and Calvin is subtle and provocative - definitely the most fascinating and disturbing film made about school shootings in america to this day imo, great vid

      The "horrors of reality" in that sense make terrible horror films. Especially considering people who like stuff like horror films have usually been there done that in terms of experience. So to them thats just real life, a part thats dark and most people have never seen, but not very scary, not much scarier than say driving day to day knowing youre far more likely to be mangled up or killed than you are in a school shooting. If driving's not scary why would the even less likely day to day shit lotto be scary?
      Now having your mind taken over by demon before being dragged to hell, thats scary. Because we dont realistically know if its possible or what it would be like. The root of horror is the unknown, so whats lacking here is the unknown.

The unknown plays a large part in fear too, you're right, but most of the unknowns are based on unrealistic *mythologies or fables.* These stories are used to induce fear as a form of control. Like the Abrahamic religions, as prime examples, who tell their followers "If they commit sins, they will spend eternity in hell!" Now, what greater form of controlling the masses has worked more effectively and efficiently than those religious laws? They are thousands of years old and people in the 21st century still follow them...fear is the most effective tool for control! Look what Hitler was able to do just by using fear to it's full potential, he turned his entire country into jewish hating/fearing folk, seemingly overnight.

    I’ve seen every available basement tape, and even was fortunate enough to play the CHS DOOM 2 WAD (Mod), and Dylan seemed to be the most disconnected, and was either playing the clown or in a screaming rage, Eric at 1 point even nearly started crying at the fact he won’t be able to see his friend in Michigan ever again, and when discussing the aftermath Eric was most concerned at how his parents would feel, before Dylan turned the camera and make a stupid joke, hell Eric’s first cigarette was in a basement tape and he didn’t even know how to use a lighter, and what I’m getting at is where there’s a Sociopath (medically called Antisocial Personality Disorder) there’s usually a Psychopath, and yes there’s a difference, Sociopaths CAN feel emotional, although slightly harder than most, it can also be switched off in a rage, meanwhile Psychopaths CANT feel any emotion AT ALL, and have to mimic using surrounding people’s body language and expressions as a base just to fit in, and is the worst out of the 2 disorders, I think Eric was the Sociopath and Dylan was the Psychopath, why is this relevant? Because when a Psychopath and Sociopath are together, the Psychopath is the dominant, and Sociopath is the submissive going along with whatever the Psycho does/says, aka, Psychos are the leader in all scenarios, hell when Eric bent down to k*ll either Cassie or Rachel (I forget which) the shotty kicked so bad it broke Eric’s nose, and he got so overwhelmed at seeing his own blood the lady next to who got hit was able to make her escape, a psycho wouldn’t care and would likely enjoy the sight.

    i saw 0 Day it was probably the closest to the Columbine Massacre. there was another just like Zero Day called Elephant. difference is the budget was a bit more higher n it follows how the kids got their weapons all the way up until they shoot up the school. it shows em putting on their trench coats n contemplate how they decide they want to enter the school. it plays the 2 shootin the library up . course wat also makes Elephant a bit unique is it also follows different kids/students be4 n after the shooting wat is odd is the shooters do not kill themselves at the end like Andre n Calvin. 1 turn on the other found 2 other survivors n played ennie meenie minee moe of who he is gonna kill 1st n thats how it ends. we can assume the swat team may have came in n killed the shooter only its offscreen so u don't know for sure.

Its quite disturbing but idk if its more disturbing than Elephant, they're very similar in style and quite disturbing.

    I think that this probably is a better depiction of something like this over elephant because it's not overly exploitive which is an unpopular opinion on that movie for some reason, because it doesn't put this in your face too much and isn't boring as hell. Still though I'd recommend actually researching columbine and not just watching a fictionalized version of it.

A bunch of lunatics idolize these two, but we had actual documentation for educational purposes for normal people. And there have actually been even more shootings since they were taken down. I hate censorship. Just people deciding what they think is best for us. Like we can't think for ourselves.

    I find Columbine fascinating in a dark way. What I think happened is that they were bullied. When the teachers and staff didn't do anything, they snapped. There's been a lot of people saying that wasn't the case, but I refuse to believe that. Why would they do what they did without something that lit that fuse? If it was their families, they'd take it out on their families. Something was happening at school and they couldn't take it anymore. To be clear, I AM NOT defending their actions. Also, I can't stand when people find scapegoats to blame for people's actions. Music, video games, tv, etc. It has nothing to do with that. People have been violent for millennia before any of those things.

      I think that that was part of their motive, but it’s also clear that they were not completely victims. There are multiple accounts of Eric being the instigator, and they both had a clear self-perception of superiority. Having read both of their journals, Eric was extremely disturbed from the start and Dylan resented anyone who got more attention than him.

      @BEEFBASTARD_ 2 місяці тому +11

      to add onto what shattered eclipse said, the shooting was also intended to be a literal BOMBING. they intended to KILL as many people as they could, which is made obvious due to the fact that they placed the bombs in the lunchroom when it was packed.. i’m not denying the fact that they’re victims of bullying and that it was a motive but this comment seriously annoys me tbh. obviously something should’ve been done about the bullying but it’s only one of the reasons behind the shooting. i think they still would have done it no matter if they were bullied.
