    Shout! Factory Releasing Zombie High

    Scream Factory Presents Zombie High 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, Bridesmaids and the 2016 remake of Ghostbusters.

    I couldn't help but want to see this, despite it's reputation as kind of a stinkbomb. It turns out that it really is! It's about a boarding school where the students are lobotimized by the faculty, turning them into mindless... you know. These "zombies" don't really do anything, though. They're just kind of docile, emotionless clones who seem to like lots of mashed potatos and following the rules. I'm not sure what the filmmakers were going for here; I guess it's a satire, but they forgot to add anything funny or daring. It's as if they thought the concept alone would be enough. There's no real FX or horror until the final 15 minutes and even then it's tame and ineffectual. The only reason this is rated R is because of swearing. It's a really pointless movie and, ironically, it ends up being as dull and lifeless as the lobotomized students. The end theme is a rip-off of the Beastie Boys' "Fight for Your Right" called "Kiss My Butt". It was stuck in my head for a few hours after the viewing.

    They actually made a video for "Kiss My Butt":
