Time to go back to school with Wyrd War! Join us on September 22 for a screening of Mark Lester's sleazy juvenile delinquent exploitation classic CLASS OF 1984 (1982)! This quirky Canadian reimagining of BLACKBOARD JUNGLE (1955) was banned in several countries, and heavily edited for strong sexual violence, when it first hit theaters like a cinematic boot to the teeth of the status quo. These days, it can be appreciated with nervous laughter for its irresistible advertisement campaign, obnoxious dialogue straight from the mind of acclaimed horror scribe Tom Holland (FRIGHT NIGHT), nutty performances from Roddy McDowall (PLANET OF THE APES) and a very young and cherubic Michael J. Fox (TEEN WOLF), boardroom exec versions of hostile punk rockers gone wild and its ripping soundtrack featuring Alice Cooper, Fear and the conspicuously cool Teenage Head! The brilliant Lalo Schifrin even cranks up the tension with an amazing original score. Buckle up and get ready for a bloody good time (seriously, there will be blood). Life...is pain. Pain...is everything. You...you will learn. Restoration courtesy of Titan Global and the American Genre Film Archive.
