Because there is, in fact, an authoring error, which has caused approximately 4 minutes of the movie, to be missing.
I have personally contacted Media Blaster, the company who have put out this DVD, and talked with the customer service rep (who claimed to have no knowledge of such a problem at first, and had to check) who confirmed that there was a problem, and that the company was aware of it, and that they were supposedly doing something about it, but that he had no idea what, or when, and to periodically call back, to see what the progress was.
My question is, why hasn't the company done a call back on this DVD, as well as why do companies like amazon.com, still have this title for sale?
It's like selling you a book, with about 40 pages missing from the middle...!!!
And understand that this is NOT a problem with only some of the, Hell High discs, and/or certain DVD players not playing the missing 4 minutes of the film; the missing 4 minutes just aren't on the disc, period!!!
This is my second run in with bad DVD authoring, by Media Blaster (also known as, "Shriek Show") as their version of, Zombi 2, also has a problem with the 2 channel, English, stereo soundtrack, which from the time of, 68 minutes and 41 seconds to 71 minutes and 12 seconds, the sound cuts in and out, for long periods of time, completely killing the famous, rotting corpse with worms in his eye socket, rising from the grave and attacking, scene.
I also called Media Blaster about this problem, and was met with the same cluelessness and indeterminate solution, that I was with, Hell High.Read more ›
The film is a departure from your run-of-the-mill 80s slasher flick but essentially follows the conventions of the genre with a few novel twists.
It's a low budget offering with some inventive kill sequences (I particularly enjoyed the prologue) but the acting and directing are somewhat uneven.
The outright sadism of the kids is hard to take at times. Just why are they so mean spirited towards their teacher? There doesn't seem to be any justification for the malevolence directed at her. It reminded me a little of "Demented". (I'm sure there's hardly anyone who has seen that sick little movie)
You'll enjoy the movie a lot more with the Joe Bob Briggs commentary track turned on.
For completist fans of 80s slasher flicks only.
