After being responsible for this year’s Bluray release of Zombie High, the gang at Scream Factory must have decided to put out a film with a similar plot, a better soundtrack and a much more entertaining ride, 1998’s Disturbing Behavior. While it’s far from a perfect film, the ’90s teen body-snatcher yarn is one that shows just how far actors like James Marsden and Katie Holmes have come, while it’s also somewhat of sad look at Nick Stahl, a very good actor who has since fallen on some very hard times.

You might think that the 1987 horror film Zombie High attempts to bring the undead to the high school hallway. You would be wrong.

Once there, she begins to realize that things aren’t quite as they seem.
