Class Of Nuke ‘Em High (1986)

I can’t decide whether the abnormality that is Class Of Nuke ‘Em High is either genius or hideously hideously bad. The plot suffers some pacing issues, for me I found it hard to stay focused during the first act (yes, even with all those nude “teens” lol) but the payoff comes towards the end.

This is a Troma classic so I won’t go into the story itself, but it’s worth saying that the effects are top notch, and are everything you should expect from a Troma release, if not in smaller doses than I expected. What truly surprised me was the camera work, and dare I say, cinematography. This piece sings beautifully on old grimy film, and the editing and aesthetic choices are glorious.
