Enjoyable Horror Spoof- the first of its kind.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Student Bodies [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The cover boasts that before Scream there was Student Bodies. Which of course is true, as Student Bodies pre dates Scream by some 15 years. However the films have little in common. Student Bodies is an Airplane like spoof, whilst Scream was a homage to old horror classics, admittingly with a touch of humour.
Student Bodies is a parody of slasher films, especially Halloween and Friday the 13th, and uses the 'if you have sex, you must die' line. The killer is known as the breather, because he breathes really heavy- he or she is also happy to comment just before a kill.
There are many jokes flying around, some amusing others laugh out loud funny. There aren't really any direct references to the horror films that Student Bodies wants to parody- its message is more like saying, why would someone go in a dark room alone knowing there is a killer loose? Having said that, movies such as Halloween, Friday the 13th, Prom Night and even Carrie can be recognised through some of the jokes.
Silly yes, but fairly enjoyable.
