Class of Nuke 'Em High Part II: Subhumanoid Meltdown

Class of Nuke 'Em High Part II: Subhumanoid Meltdown (1991)

My Rating

Movie Info

The feverishly deranged minds at Troma Films endeavor to top their original cinematic stink-bomb Class of Nuke 'Em High with this excruciatingly awful mess -- which takes place at the newly-built Tromaville Institute of Technology (TIT), built after the nuclear disaster that mutated and destroyed most of the students and faculty of the Tromaville High School. It seems something gloopy is amiss once again, as certain members of the teaching staff are plotting to turn the students into hideous

Audience Reviews for Class of Nuke 'Em High Part II: Subhumanoid Meltdown

Class of Nuke 'Em High Part II: Subhumanoid Meltdown is again set in the radiation polluted town of Tromaville, although instead of the High School this time the story takes place at the 'Tromaville Institute for Technology' or 'TIT' for short (yeah folks that's the level of comedy this film aspires to). Misguided genetic scientist Professor Holt (Lisa Gaye) has created a new form of life, a genetically created human being who fully matures within nine months & can be used for all those jobs us humans don't like, Professor Holt calls her creations Subhumanoids. Ace reporter for the Tromaville Tech Times Roger Smith (Brick Bronsky) becomes romantically involved with a Subhumanoid named Victoria (Leesa Rowland), however no-one said the course of true love would be smooth & as such there is a problem with Victoria. It comes to Roger's attention that other Subhumanoids are beginning to go into meltdown &, well melt into green slime leaving behind a furry green football sized creature. Roger also becomes aware of Dean Okra's (Scott Resnick) plan to turn all the Subhumanoids into slaves & sets out to free them & find a cure to stop Victoria from turning into green goo, meanwhile a 30 foot radiation mutated squirrel goes on the rampage as it stomps it's way through Tromaville...

Co-written & directed by Eric Louzil I personally thought Class of Nuke 'Em High Part II: Subhumanoid Meltdown was better than the original & a pretty good comedy horror in it's own right. The script by Louzil, Lloyd Kaufman, Carl Morano, Mark F. Roling, Jeffrey W. Sass & Matt Unger is a vast improvement over the original as it actually has a storyline this time round. It still doesn't make a whole lot of sense but it never takes itself seriously & is good fun to watch. Some may disagree as it has the usual low brow humour you would expect from Troma, a fat guy bending over sticking his bum at the camera & farting, projectile vomit, throwing a baby around like a football, the limited locker space so the students (the female ones in particular) wear very limited amounts of clothing & a giant mutated squirrel urinating & being sick over everyone. However in the case of Class of Nuke 'Em High Part II: Subhumanoid Meltdown it works quite well, don't get me wrong it's far from brilliant but it's entertaining in a strange funny sort of way. The character's aren't the best & the dialogue isn't exactly Oscar worthy stuff but then this is Troma so what did you expect? Something is always happening, it moves along at a nice pace & at least it's never boring.

Director Louzil doesn't do anything particularly outstanding but it's better made than most Troma films that's for sure. The jokes & gags are very hit & miss, I found some funny while other's I found simply moronic. It certainly tries hard to pack as much crazy action as it can into it's 100 odd minute run time. I also must mention the closing credits, besides a cool theme song there are some really funny credits like 'Unoriginal Story by I. Kant Wright' a list of 'People Who Did Not Act in this Film' & more. The film goes for outrageous comedy more than horror so don't expect any scares or shocks, the gore is conspicuous by it's absence, a torn off head & someone eating some broken glass is as gory as it gets. There is lots of nudity as one would expect from a Troma film.

Technically the film is alright although it varies from scene to scene. There are some stop-motion monsters which look OK while some of the other special effects are absolutely awful. A special mention goes to the closing theme music & catchy song which I thought was great. The acting isn't great & I still can't figure out what that point of Professor Holt's massive beehive hairdo was all about. There are plenty of good looking ladies with not much clothing on in this film, which helps.

I liked Class of Nuke 'Em High Part II: Subhumanoid Meltdown & found it quite funny although many will be put off by the low production values & totally bizarre plot. If your looking for a bit of fun & have a slightly depraved sense of humour then I recommend this film, if you don't then I don't. Followed by Class of Nuke 'Em High 3: The Good, the Bad and the Subhumanoid (1994).
