A group of high school kids, the elite clique of the popular and successful, make nerd Marty (Simon Scuddamore) the butt of their humiliating April Fool's gags. When one trick in the science lab turns bad, Marty is scalded with acid. Years later, the same group of students is invited to

the shuttered high school for a reunion. There they find no party and, later, no exit. One by one they are done away with in gruesome fashion, until it slowly begins to dawn on them that they are being victimized by killer nerd Marty. They make efforts to escape, but eventually all are killed,

whereupon Marty takes off his mask and begins laughing with delight at his accomplishment--until the ghosts of his victims begin to torment him and chase after him. Although superficially indistinguishable from the usual run of this type of film, SLAUGHTER HIGH is actually a superior example. The

high school revenge plot is always potent, for who hasn't been humiliated during those years and dreamed of wreaking a nasty revenge? The story line is as direct as can be, and little time is wasted with extraneous subplots. Very effective use is made of the location, a decaying old school

building that would give anyone the creeps. Good performances by Scuddamore, Iannaccone, and veteran B-movie starlet Munro further enhance the film. The effects are rather good but not too gross, tending to be near-comic.
