Hell High Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This routine slasher-thriller deviates slightly from the standard formula by way of a fairly intelligent script which explores the murderer's motivation in far more detail than other films of the subgenre. The central character is high-school science teacher Ms. Storm ([[Performer~P50255~Maureen Mooney~maureenmooney]]), a mild-mannered woman plagued by barely-repressed psychological traumas, who finally snaps after falling victim to a sadistic prank perpetrated by one of her students. Believed dead, Storm comes after the pranksters with homicidal intent. Though [[Performer~P50255~Mooney~maureenmooney]]'s well-portrayed transformation from victim to murderer provides an interesting role-reversal against slasher convention, the story still falters in the overall execution, bogged down considerably by some lackluster performances and very little actual suspense. Still, it's considerably better than [[Feature~V13160~Demented~demented]], an earlier, wholly unsubtle treatment of the same theme. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
