About the Movie
A well-known anthropology professor is the main suspect in a series of gruesome decapitaions of young coeds at a Boston night school. Rachel Ward ("The Thorn Birds," "After Dark, My Sweet") stars in this horror film about a police detective who must find out who has been decapitating the women who attend night school at Wendell College.
Don't lose your head!
At last "Night School" is getting a video release in the digital age, albeit just a download. This is a full screen experience and unfortunately no effort has been made to remaster the contents for this download. This looks to be either a home video master or telecine print. If you can live with this, then you will enjoy this forgotten slasher classic. If you've long lost or thrown out your VHS copy, then this is a decent replacement.
Throughout the 80s, "Night School" made the rounds on cable TV and could always be found in the mom and pop video stores that were once so prevalent. Obviously made to cash in on the slasher genre craze of the period brought on by "Friday the 13th", the film actually has a somewhat original script and concept….anthropology! The kills are your usual slasher variety. The "head hunter" concept is played out to the max. Heads in the toilet, heads in the aquarium…you get the picture. Oh yes, and there is enough nudity to satisfy most fans who live and breathe this stuff.
Theatrically released by Paramount Pictures in 1981, this film was produced by Lorimar….the company that brought you, of all things "The Waltons"! Video rights reverted to Warner Home Video which gave it a generous distribution to video stores everywhere. This is pretty much what you get here…a home video quality print.
Brad Fiedel Music score
Would it be possible to upload the musical score in this film, composed by Brad Fiedel? I love the sound of it all throughout the Night School movie. Thanks!

was remastered in widescreen from Warner Archives…DONT BUY OR RENT this full-screen VHS rip like I did!
