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).

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.Read more ›
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!
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.Read more ›
