Trivia

The sequence with Wendy Lyon walking around the locker room fully nude wasn't written as such. In the script it was implied that she would be wearing a towel. Screenwriter Ron Oliver was startled to see the final scene as it appears. See more »

User Reviews

Hints of German Expressionism
26 June 2003 | by minipistolaSee all my reviews

Though this movie often gets skewered on the message boards it is a delight for those who appreciate the high school horror films of the 80's. The acting is stale, the story is one we've all heard before but this film had some memorable touches. The locker room scene is one of my all-time favorite death scenes and this film used the art class paper cutter as a weapon way before Josh Hartnett wielded one in "The Faculty". The "living rocking horse" is definitely something viewers wont easily forget and that scene reminds me of horrors historical roots in cinema: that scene screams German Expressionism as much as the title sequence in "Nightmare on Elm Street". If you don't like camp, this movie will be hard to swallow, but if you're a fan of the B movies you rented as a kid just because the cover art looked creepy: bon apetit.
