Cutting Class

Cutting Class ★★★½

"NO ONE SAID SURVIVING HIGH SCHOOL WOULD BE EASY!"

Decided to throw this on as I recover from staying up late for Vinegar Syndrome's black Friday sale last night. The perfect braindead slasher for a lethargic day off! There's a peculiar vibe about this one that I really love. On the outside it seems like your typical 80s slasher but deep inside lurks a tonally bizarre and mean spirited little weirdo of wonder.

The highlights are found within the layers of inept film making, goofy characters, stupid plot, the oddly effective soundtrack and overall flat affect of the film. Simultaneously  clumsy, haphazard and hypnotic it pulls you in with it's quirky energy and unhinged 80s wackiness. And some really inventive kills too! That trampoline spear death is brutal! You need a photocopy? How about we photocopy your dang face! Axe in the head now you're dead!

Just how I like my slashers. Cheesy, weird and a little bit off kilter.
