- Montreal Massacre
- February 3rd, 2009
20 years ago at a University in Montreal (that is known for it's engineering school,) a young man walked in with a gun, went into a classroom, and separated the men from the women and shot only the women! He continued his rampage in the cafeteria and hunted down a few more women like animals. After killing 15 women he turned the gun on himself. A film is being released this week in Quebec about this massacre and it is causing quite a controversy.
I want to see it. I want to know what happened in detail. I am curious, always have been. I was glued to the radio a couple of months ago when his mother was interviewed after 20 years of silence. I just heard the director being interviewed on the radio and it sounds like he has treated the subject matter with respect. It is a well researched film and has had the blessing of many survivors and even has had input from the shooter's mom. That is not to say that it is intense...very intense...as the reviews keep reporting.
Even the trailor is upsetting to watch. I wonder why I want to do that to myself, why I want to see this film.
