Before they rose up from the grave, the undead needed to get degrees. Zombie High gets the Scream Factory treatment on Blu-ray. The comic thriller about prep school kids with issues was a cult fav when released back in 1987. The movie has Paul Feig acting. Virginia Madsen (robbed of Oscar glory for Sideways) is magnificent as she struggles with the strange students. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
Scream Factory Presents
On Blu-ray + DVD December 15, 2015
Starring Virginia Madsen, Sherilynn Fenn and Paul Feig
I used to be normal…happy…well-adjusted…but that was before… On December 15, 2015, Scream Factory proudly presents Zombie High in a Blu-ray + DVD combo pack, for the first time on either format. A brand new high-definition transfer highlights the incredible story of a hard-working student and the warped way of life that made her go wacky!
Virginia Madsen (Candyman, Sideways) and Richard Cox (Cruising) star in this humorous thriller about the bizarre happenings that occur in a prestigious boarding school. It seems to Andrea Miller (Madsen) that the upper-classmen act like robots. They’re the perfect students – dedicated, involved and loyal. Their clothes are perfectly pressed and their hair is perfectly styled. It seems that the teachers have something to do with this ingratiating behavior. And when Andrea, the new kid at school, sees her friends turning into clones, she starts to suspect the worst.
The film features a great supporting cast including Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks, Ray Donovan), Scott Coffey (Mullholland Drive, Lost Highway) and Paul Feig, who would go on to create the TV series Freaks And Geeks and direct such films as Spy, Bridsmaids and the 2016 remake of Ghostbusters.
