One hundred fifty dead, and three hundred fifty missing in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, Colorado, and that's only the beginning.
An adaptation of the novel was originally set to be made in the late 1980s or early 1990s by New World Pictures and Allied Vision Entertainment, but was shelved after New World filed for bankruptcy.
You always had an urge to shoot little boys?
Sheriff Bryce Hammond: No. This time, I'm gonna miss.
When the body of Deputy Henderson (actor Larry Odien) is found, several empty shell cases are found around his body showing that he had fired at (and presumably hit) whoever or whatever is involved in the missing/killing of the townspeople. The empty shell cases shown are of a "bottle-necked" design. While the Beretta 92 series pistol that the deputy carried is available in several calibers none are of a bottle-neck design. While this type of ammunition IS available in some handguns it's use is far more common in long-guns such as carbines and rifles.
