In 1972 the class gang played a prank on one of the students. 10 years later they are attending there reunion and things start to go wrong when the student they picked on has turned up seeking revenge. they find themselves trapped in the school and well.... watch it to find if if your interested this far.

I picked this up in the cheapie bin, and I suggest you find it there too. It isnt worth much, honestly. It's got some pretty funny moments, but it's not classic funny like Animal House and Vacation. So find it cheap and it's worth it, but dont pay more then ten bucks.

Theres no bonus features or anything, apparently the US version comes with a booklet, but even if ours did I dont think I wouldve done more the flicked through for a glance if that.

It's not dull or boring, it flows rather well, but I predicted the plot a qaurter of the way into the movie, and I think you could too, so the end was pretty much suspected. There is some pretty good effects, espeicely for an 80's film. I heard something about this movie original intended to be a sequel to Animal House, but they obviously didnt do it that way, but the guy who played Ken Dorfman in AH is in this film as a diffrent charactor, as well as a few familuer faces but I dont know there names.

Worthy of a rent, worth the money as long as you dont have to pay alot and yur sure to get a laugh or few out of it!

National Lampoon's Class Reunion is a murder mystery with a slight twist -- a comic one. The entire movie is a series of funny quips and happenings, making the movie-watcher laugh until their sides ache. Class Reunion is set in an old closed-up school where they are currently having their class reunion, and the people are hilarious, from the snobs to the exchange student from Transylvania. Suddenly people start getting murdered, and the entire party breaks up to find the culprit. The ending is quite a surprise, and I think you will enjoy it as much as I do. There are a few big names in this movie, but at that time they were so young, it's strange to see them. All in all, this movie is great, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to watch it. Compared to all the other National Lampoon movies, I would say it is most like Animal House with it's comedy. I would rate it as one of the classics of the 80's!

Wacky! Goofy! Stoooopid!!! Fun! This slasher film parody has me in stitches everytime I watch it. Zane Busby as the cripple who sold her soul to the devil is one of the best character performers of all time. Her facial expressions and side comments crack me up. The late Ann Ramsey (Throw Mama From The Train)as the cafeteria worker brings back memories(?) of mystery meat lunches and creamed whatever that green goop was as part of the high school nutrition program. The few off-color bits in the film are done well and not disgusting or shocking. I've heard and seen worse on late night talk shows! All we needed now was to have Elvira show up as the guidance councillor or school nurse! A job well done on DVD.

Okay, my title sucks, but this movie doesn't. Lately, National Lampoon has released so many pieces of you-know-what that I doubted there were any good movies out there by them that I hadn't seen. Then I saw Class Reunion at a video store and noticed it was a.) not one of the millions being released this year and b.) written by John Hughes himself (responsible for the Lampoon's best besides Animal House, Vacation). I found it for a reasonable price here on Amazon, and it is hilarious. It's not at Animal House or even Vacation level, but it has many funny moments.
The plot concerns a troubled man named Walter that was the butt of a cruel prank by the high school seniors, and now at the 10-year high school reunion, Walter has escaped from the loony bin to seek revenge. One of the best parts of the movie is recognizing all of the high school stereotypes, twisted gleefully by Hughes as he has done so many times (Weird Science, Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, the list goes on), like the preppy class president, the equally preppy prude, the blind girl (why not?), the guy no one remembers (Gary...something), the horny fat guy (played with gusto by Stephen "Flounder" Furst himself), and... the crippled chick that sold her soul to the Devil to be cured so now can produce fire. I remember someone like that at my high school, except she could produce ice.
Anyway, for any Lampoon fans that weep for its future, look at this movie from its past and hope to God they can start making good movies again.

From National Lampoon® and screenwriter John Hughes (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Home Alone) comes this "very funny" (Screen International) teen horror parody set in thehallowed halls of a boarded-up high school. Featuring Oscar®-nominee* Michael Lerner, Class Reunion will make you scream and shake with laughter! It's been 10 years since Lizzie Borden High School's class of '72 graduated, and everyonethe preppies, the hippies and the in-crowdhas returned to reminisce over good times past. But classmate Walter Baylor has returned too with a vengeance! While the rest of the gang is misbehaving at its alma mater, Walter, who was amisunderstood freak then and a certified psychopath now, is still not over a prank played on him a decade ago and out to wreak havoc of a different sort! *1991: Supporting Actor, Barton Fink
