Class of Nuke ‘Em High (1986)

Class of Nuke Em High movie poster

This is the film made by the the notorious Troma outfit after Toxic Avenger (1985) put them on the map. A sort of comedy horror eco splatter parody it’s dismal but some people get a kick out of it. There’s a spill at Tromaville nuclear plant and an employee sells drugs to the kids in the local high school and suddenly they’re foaming green stuff at the mouth and the girls who have underage sex have miscarriages that look like Alien complete with tendrils and teeth. The only redeeming feature is The Smithereens singing Much Too Much at the indoor beach partyCritic Anne Billson said of this that the fact that it has no redeeming qualities whatsoever lends it a certain cachet. I rest your case.
