Class of 1984
Directed by Mark L. Lester
An idealistic and naive music teacher has moved into a new community with his pregnant wife, only to find his new job is an academic abyss. Appalled by the crime-infested school, Norris soon crosses paths with its teenage kingpin, the shrewd and sadistic Peter Stegman. With Norris setting his sights on reforming Stegman and the young punk declaring war on his teacher, the duo is on a collision course for a fateful showdown.
A new teacher at a troubled inner-city high school soon ends up clashing with the delinquent leader of a punk posse that runs the school.
Cast: Perry King, Merrie Lynn Ross, Timothy Van Patten
This was pretty good, but Class of 1999 is much better!
Before 187 with Sam Jackson or The Substitute with Treat Williams or Tom Berenger,there was this little gem I grew up watching made in '82.This is pure 80s grindhouse cheese but with more grit. Great popcorn nostalgia film and look for Michael J. Fox in his first role. Credited just as Michael Fox. The ending delivers and filmed in Toronto Canada. So seeing A&B records and Sam the Record Man in there brings me back.
classic, haven't seen this in a loooooong time.
This was much better than I thought it was going to be. Very well done gritty 80s punk horror movie.
