Lizzie Borden High's class of '72 are going through the motions at their tenth-year reunion, until deranged alum Walter Baylor, driven insane by a sadistic senior-year prank, escapes from the mental institution and crashes the party. When guests start getting bumped off, the other alumni, including snooty yacht salesman Bob Spinnaker, class tease Bunny Packard, and class zero Gary Nash, spring into action to uncover the culprit. Chuck Berry makes an onstage appearance. Written by

For most of the film, Walter Baylor wears only one brown bag over his head, however in the Medieval science class, you see four different bags hanging on the wall. See more »
During opening scene set in 1972 (ten years prior to 1982 reunion), most of students wear clothes and hair styles from late Fifties/early Sixties, probably to make it more apparent that considerable time had passed. See more »
National Lampoon have a checkered history of film-making - for every Animal House, they produced a slew of Van Wilder level trash. But this one is definitely in the Animal House camp. I'm astonished that it's taken such a panning on IMDb! It's a stupid film, full of ridiculous characters, but I defy you to watch it without laughing. As well as some excellent performances, it has some absolutely brilliant lines (note that it was written by John Hughes), some beautiful comic vignettes, and Chuck Berry is in it! What's not to love?
Another review referred to it as a "slasher movie spoof"; it is not. Nor is it trying to be. If you want to see a slasher spoof - go and see Scary Movie 12. If you want to sit giggling in front of your TV after you get back from the pub one night, give this a try. Ignore the haters.
