This is one of those horror films that tries way too hard to be something different and merely winds up as a confused mess. Combining gore with comedy as a movie within a movie within a dream within a movie, RETURN TO HORROR HIGH opens as local police arrive at a high school brimming

with the bloody bodies of a horror film crew, a massacre only the screenwriter survived. Through a flashback, we see the hapless low-budget crew shooting at the school, where a real-life unsolved mass murder took place several years before. The innumerable twists and turns of the plot, combined

with several shifts in time and perspective, wind up more confusing than intriguing, and most of the humor is purely (pardon the pun) sophomoric. Some of the "in" jokes about the industry in general and horror films in particular are good for a few laughs. Fans of "The Brady Bunch" will be

particularly shocked--or delighted, depending upon one's perspective--by the over-the-top performance by Maureen McCormick, aka Marsha Brady. Blood seems to turn her on, and at one point she excitedly clutches her breast and smears her uniform with the stuff.
