when does a dream become a night mare
11 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Andrew Norris (Perry King) is a new teacher from Nebreska who has a run-in with the local toughs when he refuses to just look the other way like fellow teacher, Terry (Roddy McDowell) warns him to do. When the gang target his students (including a young Micheal J. Fox) as well as his pregnant wife, he has to take matters into his own hands. This b-movie from the '80's is amazingly great from the highly catchy Alice Cooper sung 'I Am the Future' to the many memorable quotes to the over the top ending. This is just a great piece of cinema and an '80's classic. Timothy Van Patton is a great foil as the leader of the gang. I VERY eagerly await the special edition DVD that's coming at the end of the summer.
