A poster of Pieces (1982) is visible on the movie manager's office wall when he's talking with Carol over the phone. See more »


In each sequential or consecutive opening scene involving Marty inside the school lab, it is way obvious that the camera is jostling the shelf containing the nitrite acid. Two times, he is standing away from the shelf, so he cannot possibly bump it. And another time, he is putting the bottle back in its spot, after pouring some into a beaker. However such maneuver would not cause the shelf to simply wiggle or move. And no chemical lab would have a flimsily constructed shelf, holding very dangerous or toxic chemicals. See more »


Marty: Hey, what's going on?
Carol: Ever try it under the shower before?

User Reviews

Should be a slasher classic.
15 May 2000 | by bigpappa1--2See all my reviews

A nerd returns years later to his old high school to kill all the students that used to pick on him. Caroline Munro stars as the main victim, and this is a pretty decent slasher flick, better than most in the genre. Some humor and gruesome effects make it entertaining and the ending is a refreshing change of pace. An above average slasher flick with plenty of exciting chases give this one a 7 out of 10.
