Storyline

High school student Paula Carson's affections are being sought after by two of her classmates: Dwight, the "bad boy", and Brian, a disturbed young man who has just been released from a mental hospital where he was committed following the suspicious death of his father. Soon after being released, more murders start happening. Is Brian back to his old tricks, or is Dwight just trying to eliminate the competition? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

So bad it's good

Man this is the ultimate fun movie for a video party with some folks! The story is boring, the actors may look good but play quite bad (incredible Brad Pitt became so succesful after that trash film) and the jokes make you wanna cry. And every time I saw Paula's dad still alive after quite a few days without drink and food I got mad! What garbage! But like I said: When you wanna have fun and make a video party and don't wanna watch intelligent films like "Nightmare on Elm Street" (every movie's intelligent when you compare it to "Cutting Class"!) then go and see that one!
