Class of 1984

Directed by Mark L. Lester
Canada, 1982
Action, Crime, Drama


The teachers at Lincoln High have a very dangerous problem… their students! Class of 1984 is one of the seminal cult movies of the early 1980s. While its vision of a decaying, violence-plagued inner city school seemed over the top in 1982, it sadly prophesied the future of American education.

Critics reviews

There’s a good buzz-saw gag, but even this bit is marked by a problem that’s symbolic of the issue that hangs over the entire movie: It isn’t messy enough. The film doesn’t quite have the verve of a great midnight movie.
