Storyline

Six former classmates receive invitations one day to a high school reunion. When they arrive at their alma mater, however, they find that not only are they the only ones to have receved letters, the invitations were actually sent by a deranged preacher intending to murder them all as punishment for their wicked ways. Will any of them escape from the remote schoolhouse alive, or will they all meet their final judgement? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Goofs

At the very end of the film, Christopher walks back into the lake and submerges. Once submerged, the scene cuts to a much more broad picture of the lake in which the credits start to roll. If you look very closely at the right side of the picture, you can see a person walking along a path that is on the right edge of the lake. It is clearly Christopher because he has the same blue shirt and maroon pants on. See more »

AWESOME....A CINEMATIC MASTERPIECE
9 February 2001 | by kane4282See all my reviews

Class Reunion Massacre is one of the greatest films ever made about a guy that comes from the water to kill people.....at least i think thats what its about.....who knows!!!! but a freakin' dummy lights a Albert Brooks look alike on fire and there are lesbians...boy the guy who wrote this was a genius...the greatest scene (aside from the kid emerging from the water with his arm up in the air like Judd Nelson) is when the poor mans Albert Brooks (or Robert Wuhl..depending on who you ask) entices a child with a dollar bill only to get his fingers slammed in the door. you have to see it to believe it....what a film!
