I'd never seen this one in the 80's I had it on my wishlist back when it's now on DVD

it plays like an early 80's movie..opening bad graphics and Alice Cooper song haha...Perry King plays a new teacher to a inner city school where a gang of punk kids run the school.
I really enjoyed watching the Featurette Blood and Blackboards with the director and actors now talking about how the movie became a cult classic and really was a scary reality to what schools could become.

Pretty cool flick......

"We are the future... and nothing can stop us!"

Except the changing of fashion.

I have vivid memories of the cover of this film down the videoshop. It has a really nice b-movie feel.

Check out the early part for a chubby Michael Fox!

Timothy Van Patten was one of the most disturbing villains I saw in an 80's movie and some of the scenes were down right nasty. I got the special edition DVD recently and have yet to see the extras but what a dark film and what an ending!

Don't get me wrong because some of the scenes are so over the top......but some seem so real and dark they do stick with you.

In the Doc....they talk about how even the club scene was real punk teenagers and it got a little out of hand.

Timothy Van Patten was great.......his smartassness, awkward grins, he was horrible and believable!

They even talk in the doc how they re shot the end after screenings and it makes all the difference.

Eh? Why? Statements like that are occurring far too often on this forum from people that consider themselves 80's fans. You've been registered here for 6 years, you have no excuse!

Here is your homework:

http://www.fast-rewind.com/Browse.htm

It's an 80's site that has a pretty good movie listing section. Go through the list A-Z. There *will* be a test.

Girls, seriously, if there's any more giggling you're going to finish the sleepover without the TV.

Alright mate...calm down.

Just because you are an 80's fan, doesn't mean you have to heard of every film. I like to go and check out films on the list on here when I hear of them. I don't have the time to rush out and buy every one on the list.

That's one of the good things about this site, that we get to share stuff, and introduce others to things we may have missed, or think people might like.

Some things like valley Girl are huge in the USA but not here, I have seen that now, thanks to this site.

And we wouldn't have the tv on anyway...we would be painting each others nails and talking about boys.

Don't worry, I am calm. It just reads like I'm not. Check it: [Cool]

Ah... see, interestingly; Valley Girl was never really that big in the US either. It was a b-movie that did ok at the box office and was then largely forgotten by most people. It's only since the internet and people like the members on this site (including me) that the film has (justifiably) been revised as a classic. Don't be fooled, though! Many of the people on here (even from the US) didn't see Valley Girl in the 80's. You aren't being a slacker McFly!

Even though there's an 80's TV marathon starting with BTTF then 16 Candles?!

Muffy gets it! [I knew you two had met up for real] Someone has to make sure that you guys behave when you're having a sleepover!

Yeah....so there!
I can still cancel that Pizza young lady! Now turn the music down and behave!

It was about viscous 80's gangs terrorising innocent kids. I've derailed it.

Seriously - I'm not trying to make people mad (If I was, I certainly wouldn't start with Angel or Muffster!) I'm kidding and exaggerating with my 'finger wagging' for effect (I should probably use more smileys... [Roll Eyes] ). But I am legitimately recommending browsing the movies on the site, as I know that we all tend to congregate on the forums. It's a great place to start when people recommend stuff, especially since the reviews are written by our own members.

Interestingly, it also had a couple of sequels, one of which came out in the last days of the video rental 'boom': 'Class of 1999'.

Less interestingly. Class of 1984 was one of the movies in one of my great 80's video 'hauls'. I found it, 'Hard to Hold' and 'Wizards' all perfect condition at the same time from a second hand store. Class of '84 had only been issued as a pre-cert and never issued again so it was *very* hard to find. All I had was horrible quality bootleg. I hadn't seen a decent quality version of it or Wizards (also *incredibly* hard to find) in years.

Ahh... everyone's fallen asleep.

Class of 84 and Tenement are a good double billing for that crazy, psychotic dark 80's feel.

Could you imagine if Vanpatten and James Spader from the New Kids joined forces? Sheesh.

This thread is starting to remind me of the first time I watched "Class of 1984" ...I thought I was sitting down to watch a Michael J. Fox flick .. instead it turned into a street fight to the death.

Overall, it was a very good movie, just not what I was expecting. I have not seen the "making of", but it does sound interesting Muffy.

All right class, settle down! [Razz]

Good movie; the way the director builds up the injustices and frustration is quite masterly in spite of the trashy, B-movie origins.

Some of the late 70s early 80s flicks were distinctly different in the way they viewed the world: I always say the shiny, happy 80s actually began in 1984 (ironic given the film we're discussing) and anything before that was still in the more serious, 1970s mindset.

Class of 1984 is probably the closest Hollywood will ever get to something like A Clockwork Orange.

Class of 1984 and The Warriors would make for a great double bill IMO.

Remember; before John McClaine, there was...Mr Norris!

I think the 80's in the UK began in '81 with the ascension of Adam and the Ants, The Human League and Duran Duran to the charts. In the US it seems more like '82 to me. '81 and '82 were the plateau years of AOR in the charts. But MTV gradually changed the scene throughout '82, and by the time 'Do You Really Want to Hurt Me' and 'Hungry Like the Wolf' were moving up the US charts in late '82/early '83, the 70's were officially over. People like 'Rick Springfield' and 'Quarterflash' kind of bridged the gap between the two eras.

Class of '84 definitely has that 70's exploitation feel to it. A pre-MTV world in which middle class white kids who can play the piano (quite well!) are actually frightening gang leaders. Dammit! Guns ruined everything! If we were still scared of piano playing the world might be a better place!

I used to have, okay I still have it in my attic, a VHS tape with Class of 1984, Savage Streets, The Warriors, and 3:15 The Moment of Truth on it. I watched it all the time through my high school years.

I also used to have a VHS tape with Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, Valley Girl, and Fast Time at Ridgemont High on it that I watched all through high school.
