* AnnoyingArrows: The bug monster is able to withstand a crossbow bolt that appears to be made from half a tree. Turns out there's a reason for that. [[spoiler: The monster is a psychic projection by Nakata. Thats also why its "nest" turned into sand when the kids tried to eat the plants]]

Things quickly get bad, as the psychotic delivery man Sekiya takes the food hostage and begins killing students. Then one of the teachers has a psychotic break and wipes out the other adults, then begins killing students. And then... well, let's just say that Kazuo Umezu thinks of a great many ways to kill the students. It doesn't help when they find evidence that they've been teleported into the future and that the world has been completely turned to desert. Or that there does not seem to be any food other than what was teleported with them, and that everything in the world seems calculated to kill them.
