    Does anybody remember a movie called Slaughter High?
    It was about a high school nerd who is hurt really bad by the in-crowd and then somehow gets them to come back to the school 10 years after graduation and picks them off one by one. Its a mid-80's flick. Anybody? Anybody??

    I like this movie. It's a pretty decent slasher from the mid '80s. I wouldn't mind seeing it on DVD either.

    Isn't that the one where the killer's victims appear at the end in a gymnasium filled with a sort of fog effect? I may be thinking of another flick. But it rings a bell. I remember people being chased about an old High School building, and not much gore. Wasn't the killer hurt in a prank similar to the opening scene of TERROR TRAIN with Jamie Lee Curtis and David Copperfield?

    Return to Horror High rules! That's one of my childhood favourites and I can't wait to get AB's release of it. Too bad they've pushed it back to 2003, but still this gem is worth waiting for. I can't remember how many times I've seen this one, and that was a cut version to boot.

    Poor Marty.

    Slaughter High's a pretty enjoyable slasher. Some nice kills here and there. (I love the beer gag! The damn jock deserved it.) The Redeemer aka: Class Reunion Massacre had a similar plot. I was thinking about renting it for shits and giggles.
    Sad Note: Simon Scuddamore (Marty) commited suicide after the film was released.

    That is tragic to hear. As for Class Reunion Massacre, I think Program Power has it on schedule for a release.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't go into details about his apparent suicide.

    Just watched this one and had a blast. I knew very little about it and thought from the opening frame, this looks like England, lo and behold, when I hear them speak, laughter ensues. Cool movie, some great gore FX and a very cool ending.

    SLAUGHTER HIGH is on Comcast On-Demand. I couldn't believe I saw the title in the Horror menu so I watched it and loved it. Never in my days would I have imagined Caroline Munro as a high school student (although she looked beautiful) in a mid-80's slasher film. Very fun stuff. The broadcast is VHS quality, but who cares!
    The high school exterior is beautiful...very much like the high school where Craven wanted to film SCREAM (but was rejected by the city hall) just north of San Francisco.
    Check it out if you have Comcast cable!
