A small-town beauty pageant turns deadly as it becomes clear that someone will go to any lengths to win.
Melissa Joan Hart auditioned for the role of Amber Atkins.
Voice of Documentarian:
So you've, uh, you've judged a lot of pageants over the years?
John: No, no, no way, no. Never judged a pageant before in my life. Mm-mm. No way. Never been around young girls. I mean, even if I was, I mean, why would I wanna be, y'know? I-I don't get off...
In the beginning of the pageant you can see Lisa Swenson wearing a hat with "Lady Liberty", but when Amber Atkins starts talking to the crowd, you can see Lisa in the background wearing no hat anymore.
(referencing Hank's request to be freed from the car door) It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.
