When Nuke’em High’s water system gets contaminated by toxic waste, two horrible things happen; people start dying in gruesome ways and the school bullies start beating up and raping everyone. This movie by Troma Entertainment is brought to you by controversial filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman. It is similar to The Toxic Avenger, released two years prior, in many ways.
It’s fun, it’s sexy, it's inventive, it contains a fair amount of gratuitous nudity and violence. It is filled with slapstick humor that would make a child giggle. It’s got transgender and gay jokes, rape scenes supposed to make us laugh and a biological hazard contamination process that takes half the film to establish itself. Like everything in this film, it is quite repetitive.
There’s music playing in the background at all times, whether the film needs it or not. No character in this has an IQ above 70. The post-production effects are horrendous; the practical effects are slightly better. The school bullies, here, make Class of Nuke’em High completely retarded. The film’s main threat is swept under the rug and they somehow become the number #1 problem.
