I seen this on Late Night TV too
14 November 2004 | by (College Park, Maryland) – See all my reviews

Yeah, along with others, I saw this on late night TV. It was on Ghost Host Theatre (on channel 45, Baltimore) back in the late 70's /early 80's. It was amazingly bloody, mean and violent for broadcast TV. It's been years since I seen it, but I do remember:

a scene with a sink full of blood

a head floating around in a vat of acid (why the hell would a high school have something like that sitting around?)

Been trying to find this movie for years since I couldn't remember the title of it. It is sort of on DVD in the collection "Horrible Horrors Vol 1".
