Ten years ago four students were killed at a school, the killer was arrested and put in jail. Now, a couple of students have decided to do an essay on the murders. They get in touch with the killer who claims that he's innocent and that the principal is in fact the real killer. They take his word for it and decide to break into school one late night to find proof. What they don't know is that someone doesn't want the truth to come out and as the night falls, they soon realize that they're trapped inside the school with a vicious serial killer.

A fantastically awful tour de crap
11 September 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film is not quite as bad as, say, Tommy Wiseau's "The Room", or "Birdemic: Shock and Terror". It is, however, the closest you can get to that level of awful awesomeness in Swedish films.

"Death Academy" is filled to the brim with awful, stiff acting that isn't believable for a second, gigantic holes in the logic of the story, and plot holes that make you wonder if there even is a plot! And yet, there always seems to be a gleam in the eye, as if the director knows how awful his film is and is trying to have as fun with it as possible.

The gore ranges from mediocre to pretty good, and it's evident that all the money went into props and effects. The sound quality is so-so, even for a low-budget movie, and the music is so out of place that it's laughable - in a good way!

The camera angles are often very strange, and the cameraman often makes dramatic zoom-ins on people's faces when they're in the middle of a sentence! Also, when filming any of the girls, he often focuses on the wrong parts...

If you enjoy humorously bad films, this is a must see. I watched it with some friends and had a blast. It's a 100 minutes of uninterrupted laughter and enjoyment!
