A high school class reunion turns bloody when a former student seeks revenge on his classmates in this black comedy. That mayhem would strike this 20-year reunion seems preordained, given that the name of the school is Lizzie Borden High. Little did anyone expect, however, that this trouble would come from Walter Baylor (Blackie Dammett), a social outcast who was the victim of a humiliating senior year practical joke. Now, two decades later, Baylor has escaped from a mental institution to kill off his tormenters one by one. Class Reunion was the first produced screenplay by John Hughes, a National Lampoon writer who would eventually find a highly successful career as a writer, director, and producer of teen-oriented movies. His debut was exceptionally inauspicious, however, as the film's uncertain mixture of gore and low comedy was met with critical derision and audience indifference. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi
This is the 80s version of Scary movie. This is spoofing a horror slasher movie but not many die. Some parts are hilarious (especially the cook). Some of the horror is a little dumb and cheesy since it is from the 80s but I found it entertaining and still find my self quoting several lines from the movie. Give it a try.
Cheese Factor: 5
Overall: 4 1/2
Dont get it twisted, this movie is in no way, shape, or form scary it is homever...hilarious! This is a campy little movie to watch while hanging out with your friends! Definetly check this one out!
Well, you knew there was no way they would top Animal House, but have they ever? This movie has some pretty funny scenes, but overall doesn't pack the punch you'd expect from an early eighties National Lampoon flick.
