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 »
(around 50 min.) When the Cretins are attempting to drown Warren in one of the bathroom stalls, there's a large silhouette on the stall wall that reveals the cameraman's shadow. See more »
A "masterpiece" of crap dedicated for a juvenile audience.
I'm glad I was part (I was very young but still) of the Troma boom. Troma is a production company well known for crappy and sometimes cheesy movies. This isn't the exception! Oh no, "Class of Nuke 'Em High" has the winning formula that has given Troma a name in the business. We have cheap but likable f/x, glorious and gratuitous nudity, kick-ass action, cheap music , and campy acting. This is my kind of entertainment. Thank you USA's "Up All Night" for educating me on crap cinema. I got majors thanks for it.
This movie has plenty of good black humor and intense action a la Troma. So you get a sui generis cheap action flick with the occasional mix of blood and boobs.
No, don't expect a typical high school although in my teenager years I expected my school to look like this! A classic in Troma. If you want to get in the ideology of this noble production company, watch "Class of 'Nuke Em High". Jeez, even the title fits with everything.
