Real dead animals were used for the scene where the school finds Corrigan's lab animals killed. The smell of the room they were placed in was so overwhelming that most of the actors wouldn't enter the room. See more »
In the scene where Stegman and his gang go to the punk band club, the punk band Teenage Head are playing. The song that the band is playing is called "Got No Sense". Before Stegman gets on stage to stage dive, he gives a two fingered gesture to the crowd. The singer of the band onstage is next to Stegman singing the song, but his lips are not matching to the words of the song being played by the band. See more »
Brutally honest, king of the 80's high school punk scene
King of the 80's high school punk scene. Where is Timothy Van Patten? According to the the site (imdb)he's done some directing but I thought he kicked ass as the gangs leader Stegman, a chilling and mesmerizes performance in my book. While Perry King gave me a good look at a teacher just trying to get through to these disturbed teens while fighting for his life at the same time. Not like Sam Jackson in "187" but still a good teacher. My personal favorite is when Roddy McDowell holds up his biology class at gunpoint after the gang kills his beloved pets. Personally I think this is an important movie.
