Heads-up that a fascinating cult film has gotten a physical-media upgrade worthy of its weird wacky self as of today -- Synapse Films has just dropped the blu-ray for the 1976 high-school thriller Massacre at Central High, which isn't quite as lurid as its title makes it sound, while also yes being exactly that lurid.
The names you might recognize are Robert Carradine (from Revenge of the Nerds) and Andrew Stevens (from The Fury) -- it's about a high school being terrorized by a gang of elitist jock king thugs who get their comeuppance when they underestimate the new kid in town, who turns out is a fucking lunatic.
It's terrific anyway -- a definite B-movie with sex (lots of male nudity too!) and violence all ramped up to extreme levels, but also with a lot of seriousness and stuff to say about class and peer pressure besides. I was surprised by it -- it's basically proto-Heathers just without Daniel Waters' boss quotable black-humor. Any fans?
"Surprised to see the mustache on Jonathan, since he already looks a bit old to be playing the very young Tim, but at least we know onscreen chemistry shouldn't be a problem.."
--- MNPP commenter Carl has obviously read the book that the upcoming gay miniseries Fellow Travelers, starring Matt Bomer and Jonathan Bailey as lovers through the years, is based on -- have you? Or are you content just to stare at the photos of these two making out half-naked on the beach?
