Plot:
Chrissy (Asta Paredes) and Lauren (Catherine Corcoran) have just come out of a crisis at Nuke ‘Em High, and are already slithering into the next. On a personal level, their principal threatens to out them. On a larger scale, rich company owner Herzkauf (Lloyd Kaufman) isn’t done trying to make profits at Nuke ‘Em High any way he can.

After the short film that ran before it, I fell asleep for the first half or so of the film. But that just meant that I was awake enough to really take in the secod half even though I really didn’t want to. Troma will probably never win me over.

Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1 (2013)

Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1
Director: Lloyd Kaufman
Writer: Lloyd Kaufman, Travis Campbell, Derek Dressler
Sequel to/Remake of: Class of Nuke ‘Em High
Cast: Asta Paredes, Catherine Corcoran, Zac Amico, Vito Trigo, Babette Bombshell, Adam P. Murphy, Brenda Rickert, William Dreyer, Robert Prichard
Part of: /slash Filmfestival

Plot:
Lauren (Catherine Corcoran) is new at Chrissy’s (Asta Paredes) school – and the two girls (apparently) take an instant dislike to each other. But when the school’s Glee club goes through a weird transformation, circumstances pushes the two girls closer together than they thought possible and together they tackle the mystery behind the changes.

Return to Nuke ‘Em High wasn’t more to my taste than Class of Nuke ‘Em High. Rather it was the other way round. Despite a few good ideas, there was more about it I didn’t like.

Class of Nuke ‘Em High (1986)

Class of Nuke ‘Em High
Director: Richard W. Haines, Lloyd Kaufman
Writer: Richard W. Haines, Lloyd Kaufman, Mark Rudnitsky, Stuart Strutin
Cast: Gil Brenton, Janelle Brady, Robert Prichard, Pat Ryan, James Nugent Vernon, Brad Dunker
Part of: /slash Filmfestival

Plot:
Chrissy (Janelle Brady) and Warren (Gil Brenton) are the nice power couple at their school. So they mostly steer clear of the drugs that circulate school. But recently the drugs seem to have had a strange effect on the pupils around them. Maybe that has something to do with the nuclear power plant that is right next door?

Class of Nuke ‘Em High wasn’t really my cup of tea. I had the impression that the Troma movies were more like Japanese crackpot movies. While there are certainly some similarities, it just didn’t reach that amount of craziness for me.
