Class of Nuke 'Em High Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Trash-movie moguls [[Performer~P96899~Lloyd Kauffman~lloydkaufman]] and [[Performer~P94204~Michael Herz~michaelherz]] -- the creative team (so to speak) behind distributor Troma Films and makers of [[Feature~V50627~The Toxic Avenger~thetoxicavenger]] -- 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 [[Feature~V6997~The Breakfast Club~thebreakfastclub]], 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 [[Feature~V76593~Subhumanoid Meltdown~classofnukeemhigh2:subhumanoidmeltdown]] and [[Feature~V20333~The Good, the Bad and the Subhumanoid~thegoodthebadandtheugly]]. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
