    Graduation Day

    ★★½

    There is so much I enjoy about slasher films, but it is a genre I rarely dip into due to often intolerable quantities of misogyny, transmisogyny, homophobia, and ugly racist tropes. Every now and then a slasher is tame enough on these fronts I find it bearable to view, and 1981’s Graduation Day is one such entry.

    Beautiful colors, stylish presentation. A simple story with Twilight Zone overtones. The scientist who meets his demise is a nice enough guy - but scientific…
