Class of Nuke 'Em High is a 1986 sci-fi/horror movie made by Troma so you know that it will be a little different straight away! This is like a comedy too so there is something for everyone here! It is directed by Richard W. Haines and Lloyd Kaufman(under the name Samuel Weil).
Tromaville High School is situated next to a nuclear power plant(what the hell??) and some kids get their hands on a radioactive marijuana plant which leads to some of the kids being sold pot that is tainted. The kids start to have hallucinations and one of them gets pregnant with some horrible monster baby which drops into the toilet(this is very unusual stuff!!!!). The high school is plagued by this group of weirdos called The Cretins and they rule the place. They sell their weed to the kids whether they want it or not and they start giving people the tainted stuff. When a guy called Warren smokes the pot at a party, he turns into a strong man and he beats up and kills some of the Cretins. They swear revenge on him.
Unfortunately, at this moment, the monster baby is living in a barrel of radioactive goo and it is waiting in the fallout shelter in the school basement. The Cretins lure Warren into the school as they are holding his girlfriend hostage. They wreck the school and then try to get Warren, but the monster baby gets them and kills them. Warren and his girlfriend try to escape the monster and get out of the school but it is after them. Warren uses a laser that his science teacher has bought and kills the monster, but also destroys the school. Warren and his girlfriend escape and think that all is well, but from the rubble of the school comes a new little monster!
This film was very strange, but fun. If you have seen Troma movies before, this is the norm. It was funny, though and I liked it. There was mayhem throughout and the story was a little lacking, but I think that this film doesn't rely on story and it was just plain fun. It is worth a look if you like Troma and if you enjoy a good comedy/horror movie. I will give it a 5/10.
