Overview

Trash-movie moguls Lloyd Kauffman and Michael Herz -- the creative team so to speak behind distributor Troma Films and makers of The Toxic Avenger -- foist yet another epic of bad taste upon the viewing public with this melding of teenage sex-comedy and slime-oozing monster mayhem, described by the filmmakers as "like The Breakfast Club, only not as stupid, and really, really drunk." The story involves the student body of Tromaville High school, who resemble the usual group of slackers, stoners and surf punks who drift through the halls of academe... except this is Tromaville, and the dilapidated nuclear plant is busily churning out glowing green effluvia next door. Before long, the kids are glowing in the dark too, riding hell-bent through the hallowed halls on their choppers, shrieking obscene pseudo-songs and giving birth to slimy mutant offspring... pretty much business as usual. The only way to put this film into any kind of perspective would be to say it's never dull; fans of Troma product the cinematic equivalent of head cheese should be delighted. Followed by two sequels, subtitled respectively Subhumanoid Meltdown and The Good, the Bad and the Subhumanoid.

    Tromatic Guilty Pleasure

    One of the formative films that shaped my taste for b-movies, exploitation and horror, Class of Nuke 'Em High will always own a special place in my heart. Who can't enjoy a film that boasts unruly teens, toxic waste, New Jersey, and pot-smoking as it's primary premise. Even better, the National Honor Society forms an antagonistic gang who spread the use of nuclear-contaminated marijuana, which leads to a state of chaos. Highly recommended
