Student Bodies
Student Bodies (1981)

Some people think slasher films are funny. Those who made this parody are among them. Filled with lots of blood, guts and young people dying in horrible ways, it is set in a typically American high school.

Nowhere near as funny as the movies it mocks

It's rough around the edges, but any fan of slasher horror will get a chuckle out of it.
