While trying to understand a frightening reoccurring nightmare, a pledge is coaxed into breaking into her father's department store by her sorority sisters, where a deranged killer targets the girls and their boyfriends.
While receiving a routine check-up, a woman finds herself stranded on the hospital's eighth floor, while someone dressed as a doctor is intent on her never leaving, even if it means killing any staff member who comes into contact with her.
After a high school track runner, named Laura, suddenly dies from a heart attack after finishing a 30-second 200-meter race, a killer wearing a sweat suit and a fencing mask begins killing off her friends on the school track team one by one. The suspects include the track coach Michaels, Laura's sister Anne who arrives in town for the funeral, the creepy school principal Mr. Guglione, and Laura's strange boyfriend Kevin.Written by
At the time of the film's release, there was a backlash from critics against the overabundance of slasher films being made. In a form of protest, many critics refused to review any horror movies in hopes that the lack of print publicity would have a negative impact on the films' profits. As a result, Graduation Day did well upon its premiere in Los Angeles (which coincided with many schools' graduation), but not as well on the East Coast, where it received no reviews from critics whatsoever.

Australian version runs eight minutes longer than the U.S. release. This version was briefly released in the U.S. as a director's cut. See more »
Pretty lame and awful slasher about someone killing the members of a high school track team after their star runner dies during a meet.
Christopher George gives a hilariously over-the-top performance as the track team's coach. I don't think ANYONE has ever taken track and field as seriously as Chris does here - not even in the Olympics. It's a typically divine CG performance, and if you are a fan of the man/the legend, you should run right out and grab a copy.
But we watch slashers for the murders (you know it's true), not the performances, and Graduation Day fails to deliver on most counts (there is one really good kill). True horror only comes during a performance by the band "Felony". Never heard of 'em? Watch Graduation Day and find out why.
