Student Bodies is a spoof of mainstream slashers that feels ahead of its time. It’s 10% horror and 90% comedy. In any other 1981 slasher flick, you’d get filler instead of humor. A graphic counter is used to keep track of the body count, and it’s the ultimate concept for a drinking game. There’s partial nudity, which can be awkward, seeing as most of this film takes place in high school.
Everybody’s a suspect! There are the really suspicious ones, who can’t possibly be the killer. The teens are nowhere as fleshed out as the school staff, so the villain probably isn’t one of them. Who cares? It’s all for laughs. The best and most recurring jokes involve the murderer, named “The Breather”, who just can’t stalk his victims inconspicuously because he breathes so heavily.
Now, somehow, guessing the identity of the killer isn’t much of a challenge. If you’ve seen a couple of whodunits, you might figure it out. It’s probably not the prime suspect. It’s probably not a woman. Also, and that’s a given, it’s probably not someone who appears as sloppy as the killer is. In fact, it may very well be the last person you’d expect if you’re not paying attention.
