Trivia:
The films working title was "April Fool's Day", however the title was changed to keep this film from being confused with the Paramount film April Fool's Day (1986) which was released the same year.See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Some believe that the letterman jacket worn by Marty disappears as he is splashed with acid. However, Marty is NOT wearing the jacket, but it is resting over his shoulders (notice it shake when he moves). As he is trying to turn off the gas after the fire begins, you can see the jacket start to slide down his back. When he is on the ground, you can see he is laying on it.See more »

Another Review from SH's best critic, 22 April 2006
Author: rockusa3 from United States

I have lost count of how many reviews I've written on Slaughter High. I've read a lot of bad ones and I will say right now this is a fantastic movie. Simon Scuddamore made his fame in a short time for his well known suicide, and even though this was his only film, he is what made the movie so great. At first I did not know anything about Simon until I read a review about his suicide. Then I found out due to the current webpage at www.IMDb.com he was born in 1957, in Dayton, Ohio. Simon may have played the most pathetic character known to man, but his real life self certainly had their strenghths and weaknesses. He did a good acting job, who can disagree? I always wondered how he felt showing himself naked in a movie. Must have been pretty embarrassing to say the least. I first saw this movie when I was 12 in the sixth grade. I agree with some pointers like the girl would not take a bath after somebody was murdered, and that high schools do NOT have bath tubs! I think Caroline Munro who was 36 at the time was the only other star that had any dignified acting talent, and unfortunately for Simon's death he made no future films. The reason(s) for his suicide are a mystery, and hopefully will be discovered in the near future. Doing the math on his webpage it tells you he was 29 years old when he made Slaughter High. He looked like a teenager. I give this film two thumbs up, the best horror film made. Probably because of their horrible acting the others didn't make fame in the movie business. -Jacob Young
