Return to Horror High is everything good about 1980’s slashers, but it’s disjointed and tells two stories at once. There’s the movie inside the movie, and there are flashbacks with high school students. The title can be misleading. This is not some festive high school reunion. It’s everything but. It’s a film about people shooting a film inside an abandoned school.
The present-time institution is dark, foggy, and vacant. The best moments take place in the women’s locker room. The murders are imaginative, but not all gory. The actors are dull, and only surpassed, in mediocrity, by bad dialogue. That said, the film is entertaining. It’s one cliché after another; slapstick comedy slashers were never rocket science.
The movie’s deep and complicated. It confuses whoever loses focus for a few seconds. The cops aren’t real cops. The victims turn out to be actors. Truth be told, the creators tried to save a few bucks and shot in anticlimactic circumstances that hinder storytelling. The photography isn’t in tone with the script. This is not a bad movie, but it’s not as exciting as it could be.
