Night School Reviews:

Anne Barron (Meb Boden) is a teacher's aide at the Jack-N-Jill Daycare Center in Boston. It's the early evening and the last kid has been picked up by her mother. Anne is relaxing on the playground carousel when someone pulls up on a motorcycle, wearing a pink helmet. Anne is startled. Suddenly the stranger pulls out a machete and begins spinning the carousel. The machete is held up in the air and the terrified girl goes around and around - until she's struck with it.Judd Austin (Leonard Mann) is the cop assigned to the case. He is named to the stage and when he gets there, he sees a gruesome sight. The woman was decapitated and her head was place in a bucket of water nearby. The distraught director of the center says the officer that Anne worked there during the day - and was attending night classes at Wendell College. At the hospital, Judd and his partner Taj (Joseph R. Sicari) discuss a related situation from the previous week. Other woman was found decapitated and her head was dumped in a pond. They wonder if there's any connection between the two murders."Night School" is a typical run-of-the-mill early 80's whodunit slasher with a decapitation twist. This is the type of film where half of the cash is trying to figure out where the detectives are going to search the missing heads. The twist ending is cute predictable and the acting is a bit wooden (Rachel Ward, in her movie debut, is all sorts of poor here) but the movie is never boring and has been directed with style. Boston looks positively wretched on movie here and it gives the slasher a bit of a grungy "Departed" vibe. Overall, it's definitely worth checking out, just check your expectations-and your head--at the door.


Night School is an excellent, ellegant American giallo with terrific set pieces and nice test of Boston locations.Several coeds are being murdered with their severed heads found in submerged in water and the detectives trust a sleazy professor is behind it. Add in a jealous lover, a predatory lesbian headmistress, and a entire lot of slashing and we have ourselves a grand ol' time.Night School might just be a excellent mix of sleaze and class. It's difficult to trust the same boy made Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Brad Fidel's spooky, somber score sets the mood perfectly and supports it stand out among the pack.


An perfect slasher/whodunnit you might not have heard about.Brutal killings,attractive women.attractive men,big knife,Freudian Symbolism,shower stage and red herrings.Even a surprise ending,although one that is a bit out of zone especially compared to the rest of the movie.It's all there.So how come Night School isn't a more famous title? Your guess is as nice as mine. But it should be that it has to do with the relatively late release on DVD. The pacing is a tiny uneven at times which does harm the tension slightly. And the ending should be considered unsatisfying.It's one you will see coming and at the same time not at all. Very inventive I have to tell although like I told earlier a bit out of tune with the film overall. Honestly,I had fun watching since it does most things right.And to see Rachel Ward's bottom in all it's glory can't be that bad,now is it?
