Trivia

Originally started as a project by Richard Haines called "Atomic High School" in which Gary Schneider would have played the teen-aged son of a family of post-apocalyptic cannibals that would trick his dates into coming over to his house "for dinner". Lloyd Kaufman eventually stepped in, the plot was changed significantly, and Schneider was given the smaller role of Pete. See more »

If only my highschool was like this...eerily predicting a violent chaotic state of highschools in the future loaded with biker gangs and mutants. I first saw this movie on USA's "Up All Night" back in the early 90's when I was about 8 years old and it became one of my favorite late night viewings especially since I was very heavy into the Toxic Crusaders. Movies like this and the Toxic Avenger played a big part in my childhood and thanks to Lloyd Kaufman's influence I am the sick demented horror fan I am today...as if it's a bad thing. 10/10
