Massacre at Central High (1976)
Critic Reviews for Massacre at Central High
Though offering an intriguing allegorical premise about the power structure, it never graduates to be a literate Animal Farm satire.
Apesar de beirar o trash em alguns momentos, o filme contém algumas idéias interessantes que podem provocar boas discussões - especialmente se for encarado como alegoria.

Better than the title might suggest ... barely.
A wonderful, cheesy guilty pleasure movie in the revenge genre. It's violent, hokey, but fun.
Audience Reviews for Massacre at Central High
Pretty great! Massacre at Central High quite an intelligent film. It examines social class and status, power and authority, the rebellion and the aftermath of such rebellion. See it today!
Lets see, where to start, the atrocious acting? The ever present boom mic? The terrible direction and lighting? The story-line? Where should i begin picking this apart? Oh well, they were all sucky, except for the boom mic, that was awesome. I'm pretty sure my roommate pointed out the lead nerd from Revenge of the Nerds makes a good appearance in this and dies pretty mightily! Oh I'm sorry did i ruin that for you? Get over it... We have some former jock with a career ending injury who shows up in school and becomes target #1 to join every one's little cliq. Unfortunately for them this guy starts offing everyone in really weird fashions, he is like a crazy terrorist who kills everyone in school. This movie being way before Columbine, made it alright for a film like this to exist. Otherwise I think that this would be torn apart and dismantled by some right wing disgusting group of old moms who like to complain about everything. Blood, well kinda, there aren't really buckets and there isn't really a huge need for it. Not scary, not even by a long shot. This isn't one of the best horror movie I have seen, although it really wasn't that bad. I actually kind of enjoyed it and i think you might too. 4 of 10 on the old scale! Watch it with a Hearing Aide Sid
Not having seen this since I was young on a VHF station, I may remember this as being better than it actually is. Still, my memories are fond. Could it be that after all the school shootings, this is finally available on dvd?
