4.0 out of 5 stars Good COMEDY horror
If you're like me and love a cheesy horror movie with parts to laugh out loud at, this is for you. If you are solely buying this for George Clooney, don't buy it as he isn't even in it for 10 minutes. This movie adds some good gore, back story and good plot twists. It can be confusing at times due to the contrast of what is real and what is the past and what is being...

3.0 out of 5 stars George Clooney Lasts 13 Minutes
Plot. Some years back Crippen High School was the scene of some brutal murders and the killer never caught. Now a low budget film crew are there to make a film about the killings except people start getting bumped off. Is it the killer back again to continue or someone else.

Plot. Some years back Crippen High School was the scene of some brutal murders and the killer never caught. Now a low budget film crew are there to make a film about the killings except people start getting bumped off. Is it the killer back again to continue or someone else.
Supposedly a horror comedy from the late 80s but I only bust a gut on just one occasion when a breast exploded. I did smile to a few other humourous scenes but for me this wasn't enough. Alex Rocco who I remember from gangster flicks plays a producer and is brilliantly over the top.
There's a bit of blood splatter about, some gore and gratuitous nudity but very brief. It's of course a film within a film and we get some flashbacks to the original murders except the way it's been cut in is a little confusing. The whole film is corny entertainment and a low budget effort and feels very dated now. Mr Clooney in one of his early roles gets whacked early on and like most of the deaths in this we don't see how. Just some blood on his face as he presses it against the window of a door. Cut to the bottom of the door and a puddle of blood. Worth a look but only as a comparison to todays fare.
Extras nil just a trailer. USA Release but plays Region zero.

3.0 out of 5 stars Return to Horror High., 14 July 2014
In 1982, Crippen High School was forced to close its doors after a series of brutal murders took place within its walls. Naturally, the crime was never solved, and the killer remained at large... Some time later, a film crew moves in to the now derelict high school to shoot a sleazy low budget slasher pic based on the real-life Crippen High killings, and soon enough, cast and crew members start dying off. First, there is the young actor who gets lost on the way to the car park and ends up taking a knife in the back. Then another young actor is decapitated, and then...well, you get the idea. With the film set covered in fake blood and gore and actors and crew threatening to walk out left right and center, nobody even notices these strange disappearances, except for our leading lady and her slightly dim-witted co-star, who promptly take pad and pen in hand on a quest to uncover the killers identity. Will they succeed? Return to Horror High is a low budget B horror movie which is a mix between a funny horror spoof and a clever slasher flick like the Scream series. Unfortunately, the movie is not as clever as it thinks it is due to some glaring plot holes. While it did have an interesting premise and it does have a decent budget, the ending comes off as a big cliche especially if you've seen these type of slasher films which parody the genre i.e. Scream, Student Bodies ect. Though the real reason to watch this horror film is to see a young George Clooney in his early years and Maureen McCormick also known as Marcia Brady in a weird and hilarious role as a police woman who gets turned on by the sight of blood. Overall, the film was decent enough with a few gory death scenes, and there were some interesting moments. There are alot of worse slasher flicks than Return to Horror High out there like Blood Sisters and Don't Go in the Woods, but the film could have been alot better. Some horror fans might want to give this one a miss as it's only recommend to hardcore slasher fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars Class dismissed.., 10 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Return to Horror High [DVD] (DVD)
Years ago, a mysterious serial-killer caused panic on Crippen High School. The killer was never caught.

A movie company has decided to make a feature movie about these events - on location, at the now abandoned school.

But when members of cast and crew begin to disappear without a trace, it seems as if history is repeating itself...

I have a thing for early eighties horror movies that are not franchises, most are throwaway, silly, but watchable in a campy sort of way.

This detracts a lot of the fun in favour of trying to be something a little different. Like Aprils Fools Day, it's trying to be a little post modern, ironic even, as at this time in the decade, horror movies were rife, but it fails miserably.

Yes Clooney is in it, but hey, the guy had to start somewhere, and he does very little in this.

Its. to very scary, it's certainly not funny, but it does make you yearn for something like Scream, and make you appreciate decent horror movie that were made in the eighties...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Recreation of Past Horrors by a Doomed Film Crew!, 31 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Return to Horror High [DVD] (DVD)
Return to Horror High is one of those films that's very entertaining but misses the mark and you know you could never be bothered to watch it again. It's O.k., there's a fair amount of gore and some interesting plot developments. The film within a film and recreating the past horror is pretty cleverly done. There are some effective exciting and scary moments as well as some deliberate comedy which is hit and miss.
If you're buying it for Clooney then it's best not to bother as he's only in the film for about 10 minutes.
The copy I watched was widescreen, but there was no extras.

Definitely one to have in any avid horror collector's collection. Good B movie, picture and sound quality is perfect!

This movie is very unlike most 80s horror, it has a weird plot and at some points throughout the film its hard to keep track of whats really happening and what isnt, it has some good ideas and a few good bloody kills but leaves you a bit hung dry at the end and a headache, its good cheesy fun though with a bit of gore and nudity you expect from the 80s and a funny cameo from George Clooney who appears in the first 10 minutes and is the first to die. Watch it if you enjoy cheesy tongue in cheek horror at a cheap price.

Needed this one to join my odd collection of old Clooney films. He is only in the film for about 10 minutes before being despatched in a very grisly fashion, but the film is so bad it's classic. If you like old hollywood hokum, this is for you, if you don't have time to waste, then forget it.

Yes the oldies are the goodies, but when they are this cack handed and dull, then they are not goodies, no matter how cheap leave it; unless you do actually happen to be a fan?!?

Can't comment on the film because it's for a present for a shockingly bad film lover.
I'm sure she will love it thanks
