Movie Info

In this slasher film parody, a psychotic serial killer called "The Breather" is killing off sexually active high school students when not making threatening phone calls (with a rubber chicken disguising his voice). Among The Breather's weapons of choice are paper clips, eggplants, and wooden horse-head bookends, and one of the murders is committed to commemorate Jamie Lee Curtis's birthday. Student Bodies was written and directed by Mickey Rose, who previously collaborated with Woody Allen on

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

Audience Reviews for Student Bodies

A very funny spoof of slasher flicks! It's kind of stupid, but it's enjoyable anyway if you've seen a lot of slasher horror movies. I really enjoyed it.

Exuberant, right-on parody of the then-current crop of horror films like HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY THE 13TH is one of the great parodies of the period, twenty years before SCARY MOVIE claimed to do the same thing for the first time! Like all good spoofs, it alternates between perfect imitation and surreal departure. There's lots of sexy teens running about in bras and panties, and a really creepy double-jointed guy known only as "The Stick". And this may be the only horror movie to have its "R" rating stuck right in the middle of the picture, thanks to a hilarious bit excised from TV airings of this neglected comedy. Funny murders, kooky/grotesque characters, great trick ending. What's ironic is how many of the trademarks bits of these movies, like the stalking camera and the telephone terrorist, haven't changed a bit in two generations of bad horror films! Produced by the enigmatic non- producer, Allan Smithee. For my money, the three great parodies of this era are AIRPLANE!, CAVEMAN and this.

A comedy spoof making fun of slasher film where kids at a high school are being killed off one by one. There were a lot of stupid groaner jokes. I liked the on-screen body count; a number would appear each time somebody died. The breathing on the phone bit was dumb. The killing by wooden horse head bookend in the wood shop was a bit overused. It had its good bits. They needed better writers to make some truly hilarious jokes like Airplane!, Naked Gun and Scary Movie installments have done.
