50's Drive-In meets 80's excess
8 March 2002 | by (Aberdeen, Grampian, Scotland) – See all my reviews

People seem to unfairly dismiss most of Troma's output. True, on the surface there is enough melting mutants, gore and exposed female flesh to appeal to the lowest common denominator, however, most Troma movies (like most good movies) make a comment on the world we live in and following the tradition of 50's radioactive monster movies, CONH explores the fears society has towards expanding and growing youth cultures who reject the ideas of the generation before them, just like the fear Rock and Roll created in the 50's that has never fully subsided and our fears about the saftey of radiation, the media and our education system. Viewed as a piece of paranoid social commentry, Class of Nukem High is a classic.
