Trivia

The punk kids at the club were actual slam dancers called in for the film. Shooting of the scene got quite out of hand though, as the crowd got rowdy, and some actors and actresses were hurt during filming. See more »

Goofs

(at around 21 mins) When Sally auditions for Peter Stegman, the far shots show her wearing some kind of decoration around her neck, while the close-up shots show her neck bare. See more »

Brutally honest, king of the 80's high school punk scene
20 January 2006 | by ryan_hillier1979See all my reviews

King of the 80's high school punk scene. Where is Timothy Van Patten? According to the the site (imdb)he's done some directing but I thought he kicked ass as the gangs leader Stegman, a chilling and mesmerizes performance in my book. While Perry King gave me a good look at a teacher just trying to get through to these disturbed teens while fighting for his life at the same time. Not like Sam Jackson in "187" but still a good teacher. My personal favorite is when Roddy McDowell holds up his biology class at gunpoint after the gang kills his beloved pets. Personally I think this is an important movie.

Thanks,

Ryan
