Product Description

For Marty, School Days were the worst days of his life...

When the alumni of an all-American high school make a trip to attend a class reunion, they reconnect with their pasts in ways more bloody and fatal than they could possibly imagine in the 80s slasher classic Slaughter High.

On arrival, they discover the school shuttered and in disrepair, as if the reunion were just a ruse to drag them back. Still, the old pupils decide to break in and celebrate anyway. A deadly error considering that Marty, the nerd whose teenage life they made a living hell, is lurking in the dank, dark corridors, waiting to bring fear, torment and slicing, dicing murder to each and every one of them.

A Stalk n Slash video store classic from the golden era of bottom shelf horror starring scream queen Caroline Munro (Maniac, The Last Horror Film).

Format: DVD
But not so typical. I've always had my suspicions since watching this back in the day on VHS that Slaughter High was indeed filmed in England. The interior of the building almost looks brick for brick like my old school. And finally after years it was confirmed. OK it's not actually my school, but this US teen flick was indeed filmed in Blighty. I knew it!!!!

Alas the film is typical 80s fare. Kid gets bullied, kid gets his revenge on bullies. I love horror and have a deep fondness for 80s horror, which was able to poke fun at itself and have a mixture of comedy elements, horror and gore. For some reason most of the time it worked. Slaughter High isn't the best of the bunch, but yes it works, and if you love these type of films then this is well worth a purchase.

They even have Caroline Munro appear in the movie, although one of the three directors (yes you read that right) was going out with Munro at the time. It is slightly confusing given that Munro is supposed to be playing a 20 year old and she is clearly almost double that age here. Why not have her play a teacher? Also it must be said she is sleepwalking through this role. I love Munro but this isn't one of her most memrobale pictures.

The killer Marty acts it up well, such a shame that the real actor committed suicide just weeks after filming wrapped. The students are very much hit and miss at acting, but what do you expect from a low budget 80s slasher?

All in all Slaughter High is a winner, especially if you grew up watching these films. Alongside the Elm Street and Friday the 13th movies this is the one I always remember being there on the top shelf of my local video shop.

This Arrow release is brilliant. OK only 1 disc this time, but comes with reversible sleeve and loads of extras. Commentary on film and a great 30 min Caroline Munro retrospective on her career, magic!

Format: DVD
This slasher movie is the epitome of 80's slasher films. Before people bullied on Facebook, they did it in person. Marty was the victim of such bulling done by a certain click. During one of the pranks, Marty is disfigured by both fire and acid. After 5 years a class reunion, consisting only of the click is held at the abandoned school house. After the first person is killed, the crowd decides to stay together, but then separates to get slashed one at a time. While the slasher wears a joker's mask, it really isn't meant to be a who-dun-it.

Nudity, including male nudity (poor Marty), but no nude shots of the star Caroline Munro, former Bond girl.

Marty Rantzen is your typical nerd, who for some reason doesn't suspect anything is wrong when the smoking hot Carol leads him to the girls shower room for sex. As anyone but Marty guessed, a prank is being played on him. It's april fools day and Carol along with a group of her friends trick Marty into getting nude, they film it and bully him before the gym teacher catches them and demands they all be in the gym after school for punishment. Whilst in the gym, Skip, the leader of the gang, manages to slip out and add something to the acid that Marty is working with in the science room. When Marty returns to the room, the acid explodes setting the room on fire. In a desperate attempt to turn the gas off, he knocks a bottle of acid onto the table and it splashes into his face. The medics arrive and take him away on a stretcher, but not before we get a glimpse of the now horribly disfigured Marty.

Years later and it's april fools day again, Carol, Skip and all the others involved are meeting up at the school for a class reunion. When they arrive it appears the school has been closed for many years and is locked up, once they get inside they soon discover that this is a reunion of another kind. There is somebody dressed as a jester lurking in the halls of the school, waiting to kill the kids in gruesome and inventive ways. Who is the killer? Surely it couldn't be Marty exacting revenge all these years later.... Or could it?

The acting is rather poor if truth be told, but it never really seemed to matter in '80s slasher films. They seemed to work regardless. Caroline Munro played Carol, she was a very sexy woman but was 36 at the time and was supposed to be playing a teenager at the start.

Format: VHS Tape
...In fact, it is my absolute FAVORITE only after George Romero's original "Night of the Living Dead" (1968). A bold claim to make, I know, but you know there's something special about a movie that isn't even available and yet has (to date) 43 enthusiastic Amazon reviews, at least on the American site. And if reading these reviews isn't evidence that "Slaughter High" is a love it or hate it movie, I don't know what is. And I for one LOVE it.

The slasher movie is considered to be a largely North American phenomenon but alas, the Brits come up with my favorite one of all time. It's as if the writing/directing triple threat of Peter Litten, George Dugdale, and Mark Ezra sensed in 1985 that all of the formulaic cliches of 1981-era slashers had all been done to death when played straight and an entry of a more trashy tongue-in-cheek nature was in order. And they succeeded brilliantly in creating the best one possible.

The opening 20 minutes or so are priceless. I think that anyone who was ever the victim of some type of cruel hazing in high school or middle school will identify with Marty and love this portion. Simon Scuddamore shows comic genius in this role. Even the fact that Marty gets over the initial shower stunt so quickly and seems not to take the haranguing seriously when confronted again by the louts at his locker, shown by the fact that he even accepts their dubious offer for a "wonder joint," keeps with the comic tone of the early part of the film.

This movie is delightfully FUN. It has that raw mid-'80s trash feel of say "Bad Girls Dormitory" (also 1985) that can never be reproduced.
