88 Films Brings Slasher Classic ‘Student Bodies’ to (UK) Blu-Ray



88 Films Brings Slasher Classic 'Student Bodies' to (UK) Blu-Ray

Mickey Rose’s comedy horror classic Student Bodies is finally slashing its way onto Blu-Ray in the UK from the awesome folks at 88 Films on November 26th. Head on down to check out the very cool cover artwork in full detail, including a direct pre-order link RIGHT HERE!

As any self-respecting slasher buff will know, Paramount Pictures hit pay-dirt with their all-time teen-kill classic Friday the 13th (1980). Yet, when the time came to capitalise on the same cycle that the studio instigated, the brain-trust opted to take a more satirical turn and the result was Student Bodies – unleashed to cinemas in 1981. Dubbed as ‘the world’s first comedy-horror film’, Student Bodies won an instant and eternal fan following for its effective nods to a series of slice and dice denizens, including Halloween (1978), the Voorhees mythology and Prom Night (1980). Long before Scream (1996), this was the original movie that asked audiences to tick-off the tributes – and, with its tongue firmly placed in its cheek, Student Bodies remains a riotous viewing experience! Class is in session and everyone is invited to enjoy the latest, and possibly greatest, addition to the 88 Films’ Slasher Classics collection!!

In this seminal horror-comedy, an anonymous killer known only as “the Breather” (Richard Brando) terrorizes the teenagers of Lamab High by killing every student who indulges in sex. The long list of suspects includes the school’s psychoanalyst (Carl Jacobs), nurse (Janice E. O’Malley), principal (Joe Talarowski) and, most surprisingly, virginal student Toby (Kristen Riter), who’s always at the scene of the crime. Toby knows she’s innocent, however, and vows to catch the killer.
