A distinctly tongue-in-cheek slasher from the autumn of the genre’s popularity, CUTTING CLASS is a lavishly mounted and self-aware take on the genre’s best loved tropes. Starring Brad Pitt in his first lead role, directed by Rospo Pallenberg (close creative associate of John Boorman’s on EXORCIST II and EXCALIBUR), and co-starring Roddy McDowall (FRIGHT NIGHT.)
The high school experience of Paula (Jill Schoelen, POPCORN) couldn’t be better. Between being class president and dating star basketball player Dwight (Brad Pitt), she has everything she could ask for. But when mentally disturbed teenage murderer Brian (Donovan Leitch, THE BLOB) is released from an asylum and rejoins his classmates, it’s not long before students and teachers alike turn up missing, or are found murdered.
