Default Slaughter High – The Archive Conversation

For Marty, School Days were the worst days of his life...



When the alumni of an all-American high school make a trip to attend a class reunion, they reconnect with their pasts in ways more bloody and fatal than they could possibly imagine in the 80s slasher classic Slaughter High.

On arrival, they discover the school shuttered and in disrepair, as if the reunion were just a ruse to drag them back. Still, the old pupils decide to break in and celebrate anyway. A deadly error considering that Marty, the nerd whose teenage life they made a living hell, is lurking in the dank, dark corridors, waiting to bring fear, torment and slicing, dicing murder to each and every one of them.

A Stalk ‘n’ Slash video store classic from the golden era of bottom shelf horror starring scream queen Caroline Munro (Maniac, The Last Horror Film).

Haha - ''All American'' high school

This is a great crazy 80's-slasher - looking forward to seeing it get the Arrow treatment. Promising looking selection of extras too!

I'm a little curious about that myself as it's one of those 80s slashers that completely passed me by. However, I'm glad Arrow are releasing it with all these extra features and the excellent artwork by Graham Humphreys -- has he ever left anyone disappointed? I severely doubt it.

It's great fun, in that typical 80's-slasher-what-the-hell-is-this? sort of way.

If it sways you, it was shot in England with an English cast using American accents. That's worth a look surely?

Damn, got myself hyped and then noticed this is only a DVD release. No chance at all of a Blu release?

Loving the artwork though, Graham Humphreys!
