This dark and brooding chiller import proves that not only Americans can make effective horror films. Just like OIe Bornedals Danish original `Nightwatch', `School's Out' provides a highly menacing atmosphere from start to finish and some unexpected plot twists. It also delivers a top-notch performance from its female lead. Great Grand Guignol set pieces abound in the eerie main location of the ancient school building. The visionary quality of some scenes also adds a special touch and makes this more of an `adult' horror film than a common teenie slasher.
