Storyline

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.

A nerd runs amok!
8 December 1998 | by (South San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

A prime example of how entertaining a low budget horror comedy can be, Killer Nerd packs quite a punch throughout its ninety minute running time. Howard Kunkle, played to perfection by Toby Radloff, is the ultimate nerd who snaps and goes on a killing rampage to get revenge against those that have ridiculed him. It's an over-the-top black comedy that will delight those who like films by such auteurs as David Lynch and John Waters. Thumbs up on this one!
