Jason Burchfield’s review:
I think Cutting Class gets a bad deal. It is a lot more fun than most reviews will have you believe. You have to understand that it isn't meant to really be taken seriously. There is a heavy comedic element and that is what really sets it apart from a lot of its kind. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a spoof, the jokes aren't that broad, but it is definitely a slasher movie with a sense of humor.
Jill Schoelen is adorable. Brad Pitt is actually the worst thing about it but hey, we all have to start somewhere.
It also features some nice, creative kill scenes. A word of warning though, the US DVD is butchered. They censored pretty much every kill scene and basically ruined the movie. You need to find the original, uncut version.
Cutting Class isn't going to be for everyone, it won't even be for most, but if you are a fan of slasher movies from that era I think you will find plenty to love. Just stay away from that worthless DVD.
