Class Of 1984 (1982)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

9 / 10
This is one of my favourite cult films. While at times it can be seen as a silly piece of 80's exploitation cinema, it contains some good performances by its cast as a teacher and student (with his punk friends) find ways to claw back at one another to establish their hierarchical place until it all blows up in one epic finale. There are some thrilling and compelling moments in the movie, of which a few have lost their impact on repeat viewings, such as the rape scene, which was difficult to watch the first time but now it seems quite laughable (not the act of rape, but the way it was shot).

Class Of 1984 is an underrated gem of the 80's that I believe has still gone unseen by many people who would probably appreciate its crude nature. It has interesting characters and enough violence to appease those who are in it for some bloody action.
