mediocre 70s late night horror show has its moments
31 October 2002 | by funkyfrySee all my reviews

TV movie (Aaron Spelling co-produced) delivers chills roughly along the lines of contemporary drive-in fare. We get a bevy of satanic schoolgirls, led by Thinnes as the visionary art professor who turns out to be Satan himself. We even get a wannabe Sacey Keach in the supporting cast. No nudity, actually a minimum of catfights, but surprisingly good suspense is generated a few times (though not at the film's conclusion, by which time everything is pretty much clear and obvious. Notably bad editing. The DVD from "Platinum Disc Corp" is from a very bad print.
