Alex and Eric are the main antagonists of the 2003 film, Elephant. They are two high school students who commit a school shooting, possibly as a result of being bullied. They are based off of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, perpetrators of the infamous Columbine High School massacre, who were also victims of bullying for 4 years.
They were portrayed by Alex Frost and Eric Deulen.
Alex is the more intelligent of the two and implied to be the one in charge, while Eric is a slacker. The pair attempt to blow up parts of the school with bombs, but when that fails, they go around the school shooting people indiscriminately. Alex enters the cafeteria and drinks from an abandoned cup, when Eric also enters. They have a brief conversation, and Alex kills Eric mid-sentence. Showing no emotion whatsoever over killing his friend, Alex then discovers two students hiding in a freezer. He taunts them by reciting "eeny, meeny, miney, moe" to decide which of them he should kill first, as the film ends.
