Shit! April Fool’s Day is almost over and I forgot to talk about my favorite April Fool’s Day themed movie! This might shock you, but the movie is not…….April Fool’s Day. Oh, I enjoy that movie and Biff from Back To The Future is in it and all – but my favorite movie based on April 1st is……..Slaughter High! Which was actually called April Fool’s Day when it was filmed. This is all very confusing. Let’s watch the original trailer!
What the hell is up with that voiceover guy? Is this a horror movie or a wacky 80’s teen sex romp? Nevertheless, that theme music is the shit – and bad voiceover guy aside, Slaughter High is a pretty underrated 80’s slasher movie in my opinion.
It has the classic ‘kid gets bullied and comes back to kill all of his tormentors‘ storyline, some great death scenes (gut-buster anyone?), and a villain that actually could have spawned some sequels had the actor who portrayed him not passed away after the film was shot. Well that was a downer. Ummmmm……how about that theme music?!?!? The lesson in all of this (other than a voiceover guy can use too many bad puns), is to remember Slaughter High when you think of another April Fool’s Day themed movie to watch on April 1st. Did I mention that theme music btw?
