The Movie Crypt

Mar 21, 2022

On November 14, 2019 a student at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, CA brought a .45 caliber semiautomatic handgun to school with him. The boy shot 5 of his schoolmates before shooting himself in the head. Mia Page-Tretta (daughter of actress Tiffany Shepis) was one of the students that was shot. While she fortunately recovered, two of Mia’s classmates (one of whom was her best friend) did not survive. The weapon used was an unregistered "ghost gun" that had been assembled from a kit. Even with the gun jamming up after the first shot and the shooter needing to stop and clear it, the entire shooting lasted only sixteen seconds yet still took 3 lives and injured 3 others. In the second of THE MOVIE CRYPT’s new series of roundtable discussions Adam, Joe, and Arwen are joined by their friends Tiffany Shepis (VICTOR CROWLEY, TROMEO AND JULIET) and her daughter Mia Page-Tretta for an honest conversation about the growing gun violence epidemic in America. From Mia’s harrowing firsthand account of surviving such a terrible tragedy… to what the aftermath has been like for Mia as a survivor of a school shooting and for Tiffany as a mother who only wants to prevent such a terrible tragedy from happening to anyone else… to the different ways we all process grief and how we handle those in our lives who are trying to recover from trauma… to simple things we can all do to try and prevent such horrifying and senseless events from continuing to happen on such a regular basis… we hope that you continue this conversation with those in your own life and within your own community. #SaugusStrong Please visit for more information on how you can help prevent gun violence.
