Class of Nuke 'Em High (1986)

Toxic waste is transforming the teens of Tromaville High into violent punks who call themselves The Cretins. The gang terrorizes the other students while another murderous mutant monster begins to take shape in the school's basement! The Troma team returns with CLASS OF NUKE 'EM HIGH, a zany B-movie that piles on plenty of sex, drugs, and gratuitous gore! Troma's trademarked brand of ridiculous off-the-wall comedy and equally outrageous splatter effects make this one of their better titles, trailing shortly behind THE TOXIC AVENGER. The Cretins are a wild bunch of chaotic characters that take high school bullying to a whole new level. They each sport their own crazy costumes to give them a unique sense of personality while they beat their way to the top of the class. Like most other Troma features, the plot hardly exists, and is instead replaced by a long string of gross-outs and random humor that loosely ties things together. The biggest surprise comes in the end, when the mutant offspring of the two teen protagonists sets off on a bloody rampage through the school. B-movie fans can't graduate from Tromaville High without first learning the three "R's": "Readin'... Writin' and Radiation!"

Rating: 7/10.

  1. Ahhhh, the good old NUKE 'EM HIGH days, back when Troma was still more than just a huckstering shill of its former self...

  2. I enjoyed this one well, although the sequels were lacking to me. The plot in this one made sense to me over the next 2 which were meh at best.

  3. If Troma was still at its peak, then next generation B-movies like HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN just wouldnt be as wicked awesome J-Beezy =D

    B, should I dare watch the two sequels, or move on?

  5. If I can endure the sequels, you can too.

    Then again, you can always return to Project Terrible and I can just make you watch them. :-)
