A tongue in cheek high school coming of age satire that just so happens to involve a lot of blood. Mash-up of Mean Girls, Heathers and Scream, but not as good as any of those, but still good fun.
It's amazing how this movie can be a 5 star movie almost solely because of the cinematography, music, mood/atmosphere, and dialogue, but here we are. As far as slashers go, it isn't that bloody and doesn't have many murders. As far as horror movies go, it isn't that scary. But when it comes to film making, it's plain top of the heap for 1978.
