Some thieves accidentally release a toxin in a school which contaminates the water supply. This turns a bunch of students into blood thirsty ghouls. Unlike Zombies they can move quickly. The movie was designed to be cheesy and campy, but was simply stupid. The funniest scene was when the kids were chased into the auditorium by the ghouls. The doors swung out, but the kids were able to prevent the ghouls from entering by standing/blocking the inside of the door. The budget was too low to rehang a door.

The gore was typically scenes of blood and guts being ripped from a body, although you don't see a face on the body being ripped apart. They used fake body parts but couldn't figure out how to bury/cover a person so just their head shows, making it look like their body is being ripped. The extras were just as bad. The appearances of Joe Franklin and Jackie Martling added nothing to the movie.

F-bomb. No sex. No nudity.

Timothy O'Rawe comes from the same school of film making as Lloyd Kaufman and the rest of the Troma Team, where less is never more. Every aspect of this no-budget zombie picture is exaggerated to a ridiculous extreme, with comically over-the-top characters, a goofy B-movie plot, and outrageous moments of gore. GHOUL SCHOOL enrolls a pair of would-be thieves who accidentally release a deadly poison into the campus water supply, turning the entire student body into a pack of ravenous fiends! There is no mistaking the film's many flaws, but fans of THE TOXIC AVENGER will find plenty to enjoy in its silly performances and intentionally terrible humor. With costumes and FX that were clearly influenced by Lamberto Bava's DEMONS, THE EVIL DEAD, and others, GHOUL SCHOOL manages to sneak in some impressive splatter for the budget. As Timothy O'Rawe's first and only film, it serves as a cheesy reminder of everything Horror fans loved from the 80s.

This movie is definitely one of those "so bad it is good" horror films that you probably would not ever hear about if it wasn't for Camp Motion Pictures releasing it. Who the hell is Camp Motion Pictures anyway? Turns out there was a prolific underground scene of splatter/gore films being made in the 80's and this little gem of blood and guts kind of, sort of slipped the radar or maybe it was most horror fans were hooked on Freddy and Jason films at the time.

Don't get me wrong. This movie is terrible in that acid washed, macho mullet, hairsprayed bangs, 80's kind of way but it tries hard and stays true to the genre it represents; blood and gore. It is also full of cheese wizzed humor only a casualty of the 80's could laugh at.

It felt like an ode to Lamberto Bava's Demons with the possessed or whatever the heck happens to the high school swim team. The film never really explains how or what causes their transformation other than somehow the water gets tainted by some sleaze balls but it is certainly besides the point. This film is all about ripping guts, gouging eyeballs, splitting heads with axes, point blank shot gun blasts to the torso and tossing severed heads amongst one of the worst high school basketball teams ever to slack off on a court.

I would definitely say this is not the best horror film that was ever made by a long shot but it achieves what it most likely set out to be. I also don't think the persons that made this film knew that they could wax nostalgically make such a cliched 1980's film.

It is perfect for laughs and oh there are plenty. The soundtrack is also top notch. There is a bit of early 80's hardcore punk metal through out. It is a nice reference to the 80's splatter/gore genre. I won't recommend it to everyone. Only those special certain gore hounds that can appreciate.

Robin Maynard is the actress that defines this film. Truly a cult classic that will stand out for generations.
