A nerd is harassed by punks, and is the object of ridicule at work. Enamoured by a co-worker, he buys a tape series on how to be cool, summons up his nerve, and goes to the co-worker's house, only to find her in the clutches of another co-worker. Dejected, he goes out on the town and parties with some babes, but when their friends, who turn out to be the same punks that harassed him earlier, trash him again something snaps, and the irritants in his life begin experiencing an attrition problem.

Harold Kunkle's glasses alternate between having tape on them and having no tape on them throughout the movie. See more »

Killer Nerd (1991) is an fun film that portrays the exploits of Harold Kunkle. Harold is your stereotypical nerd who just wants to fit in. But his unique behavior and dress makes him a social outcast in his community. No matter what he does or how hard he tries he just can't fit in. One day Harold has enough of the ribbing and beatings and decides to strike back.
Toby Radloff stars as Harold Kunkle. He's perfect as the Killer Nerd. What keeps this movie from being better than average is the pacing of the film. It feels very padded out. I can deal with the tiny budget and the fact it was shot on video but they need to tighten this film. I guess they felt that they needed to make it at least 90 minutes. I can live with it being shorn of the padded scenes and what not (it's sequel is a much better film and it clocks in well under 80 minutes). I totally disagree with this film being the worse ever made. Watch Spine.
"NERD, NERD, NERD, NERD!!!
