Should be a slasher classic.
15 May 2000 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

A nerd returns years later to his old high school to kill all the students that used to pick on him. Caroline Munro stars as the main victim, and this is a pretty decent slasher flick, better than most in the genre. Some humor and gruesome effects make it entertaining and the ending is a refreshing change of pace. An above average slasher flick with plenty of exciting chases give this one a 7 out of 10.
