A nuclear reefer joint by Troma!
3 July 2003 | by Julien (Cescotto)See all my reviews

The secondary school described in this movie is totally crazy! Every character's got an insane streak. The vandal gang is perfectly caricatural and it made me laugh several times. The nuclear plant near the school is completely bad-managed and the consequences are terribly funny: at the beginning of the movie, a weak-looking geek turns into a drooling monster after drinking nuclear-polluted water and this makes him become outstandingly strong -- though dead and melt, after jumping through a first floor window! I think that when the heroes smoke a joint made with nuclear stuff is the best scene of this mad movie! The way Troma shows you nuclear power is so horrific that you could believe this movie was made by environmentalists! I recommend to watch this film with friends. It's an outstanding horror-comedy!
