Student Bodies centers around the students and staff of Lamab High, as one by one they are picked off by The Breather. The Breather is a galoshes wearing killer with a bizzare choice of weapons and apparently a bad case of asthma. The movie starts out on Friday the 13th and jumps right into the action as promiscuous teens are picked off with everything from paper clips to horse head bookends and including an eggplant. There is an on screen death count just to help viewers keep track of the action and also a nifty arrow that helps viewers realize when a door is left unlocked or a window opened. My favorite moment of the show though, hands down is the breakaway to a news desk where the movie s R rating is discussed and then earned. The cast is full of campy actors who specialize in cheese and do great in keeping the bad jokes and sight gags flowing throughout the movie. There is one character named Malbert who is honestly a human cartoon. The guy is probably 7 foot tall and has to weigh less than 100 pounds. He contorts his limbs throughout the movie in ways that had me doing a double take as it didn t seem humanly possible. In the credits the actor is listed as The Stick so I have no idea of his real name.
If you like Scary Movie (Sydney!) then you will love this, the grandfather of horror comedies. If you are a child of the 80 s then go out and pick this one up, I guarantee you will have fun. This movie, much like the Zucker Brothers classic Airplane! is full of great quotes (Did you just hang up on me?!) and there is definitely unlimited re-watch-ability. The release is a bit bare of special features, although the original trailer is included and is fun to watch as well. The SRP of this movie is $14.99 and is worth every penny. I definitely recommend you go out and purchase this one, you will not regret it. --Friday Night Frights on SwitchPlanet.com

Some highlights of the film that make it hilarious:
* Our killer (you never see his face, just heavy breathing, gloves, and galoshes) is looking over weapons and picks the deadliest one of them all...an unfolded paperclip!! * The ongoing "body count" that flashes on the screen everytime someone dies! * Our killer talking to the teacher: Teacher (on phone): "Why does your voice sound funny? Killer: "Because I'm disguising it, schmuck!" "How?" "I'm talking through a rubber chicken." "It sounded like you're talking through a rubber chicken." "'Click!'" "Did you just hang up?" "No, I just said 'click.'" * One of my favorite quotes as the principal "confesses": "All these years I've been naked underneath these clothes." * The killer as he chases a girl: "Why do they always run? Maybe it's the galoshes! They're a dead giveaway! Why do I wear them? It's not even raining!" *You have to love a movie that uses an eggplant for a murder weapon.
Okay, so the humor is bad and dated...but in the right mood with a lot of friends, it's downright funny.
I'm amazed that it's still in print. Enjoy.
Paramount Studios should absolutely finally release this movie on dvd.
When Student Bodies first came out in 1981 it was completely unique, no one had ever done a horror spoof before. Hense the original Movie poster proclaiming "At last The world's first comedy horror movie".
Student Bodies was written and directed by Mickey Rose, who collaborated with Woody Allen on the screenplays for Allen's early films.
The film had a completely unknown and still unknown cast *Kristen Riter* Toby Badger, *Matt Goldsby* Hardy, *Richard Brando* The Breather,
Student Bodies had a notoriously difficult production and producer Michael Ritchie, Ritchie opted to take his name off the picture, instead using the Director's Guild pseudonym.
This movie has become quite popular since it's release on video in the early eighties and is still available on VHS and can be seen sometimes on late night/early morning television becoming a CULT CLASSIC.....BUT WHEN IS THIS CULT CLASSIC GOING TO BE AVAILABLE ON DVD?
This killa Crazy comedy is every teenage horror film you've ever seen from the 70's and 80's and every horror movie cliche is taken to hilarous extremes of laughter. The screams are as frequent as the laughs as a crazy murderer or maybe murderess terrorizes Lamab High.
But the senior class is not going to take it lying down most of all Toby Badger...*KRISTEN RITER*. a mousy good girl you know like in all horror films Toby's the virgin. Toby's putting herslef and her beau in some silly positions so she can find out who's "the breather". a killer who is murdering her non-viriginal friends with a pair of rubber gloves and garbage bags and other unusal weapons of choice.Read more ›
I know this is a low budget horror spoof. But this is one of my favorite films ever. this Film is a spoof of all the 70's and 80's horror films. They have ever single horror cliche but it's funny as hell.
unless you are into cult/ low budget fims you may have never heard of this film. it sometimes plays late night on cinemax/hbo. Plus if your not into 70's and 80's horror films you might not get all the jokes but who cares it still funny.
A small town's resident "heavy breather" victimizes a bevy of sex-crazed students in this comic (and mostly gore-free) Cult Film.
Toby( Kristen Riter) is a sexualy repressed teen. her friends are dropping like flies. Her partner in crime is her equally sexualy repressed boyfriend Hardy(Matt Goldsby). Some how Toby becomes a suspect so toby and Hardy must put themselves in some weird and very hilarous situations to clear her name.
If you loved Scary movie and 80's cult films this movie is for you. This is the original horror comedy spoof.
Before Scary movie there was STUDENT BODIES
This cult movie should absolutely should be finally released on dvd
