Overview

In their quest to bring you only the best in '80s home video, New Concorde unleashes the 1985 sex comedy gem, School Spirit. As with their Munchies release, the 1.33:1 full-frame picture and lone stereo track look and sound like the best video copy you've seen -- which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Flicks of this caliber have been known to work better this way, whether they have a Digitally Mastered stamp on them or not (this one does). Bonus features include the sizzling theatrical trailer, along with a weird assortment of Preview Attractions (including the hilariously dopey Hope Ranch and the patriotic '80s actioner When Eagles Strike). With the extra bonus of those trailers, mixed with the fact that they even bothered to track down the School Spirit one in the first place, the DVD is a perfect fit for a flick that doesn't quite deserve anything more. With the original poster art intact, New Concorde has issued a cheap, but still fun, DVD that is bound heat up retailers' value bins everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
School Spirit is one of those strange '80s sex comedies that could only exist in the time in which it was made. The whole plot revolving around a guy coming back from the dead just to get laid is baffling in how blatant it is, as is the fact that they were able to stretch that epic tale over 90 minutes. And, about that problem where everyone would know the guy died and would then think that it was weird when he suddenly showed up horny as a bloodhound?...Yeah, that's never really answered too much. You could look deep into that and say some kind of statement about the filmmakers' intentions about society's ambivalence or something crazy like that -- but this is School Spirit, folks, it wasn't meant to be a pathetic thesis. The pacing does work as a breezy time at the movies, though only enthusiasts would do well to seek this one out.
