    School's Out Forever

    ★★★½

    Survival just made the syllabus. Nice tag line. Probably the reason why I thought I was dealing with a simple splatter comedy or something, but this movie is more than just that. Breezy and light-hearted when it introduces itself, sinister and dark when it reaches its boiling point. Lord of the Flies during a pandemic, something like that.

And Baxley was quite good at it in those years. Dolph Lundgren too, that's a pretty sweet roundhouse kick early on, but his ruthless cop is also having a bad day as his partner goes down. In comes a new one. A by the book fed. That means male bonding…
