Olive Films: STUDENT BODIES [1981]


Mickey Rose, famed comedy writer responsible for the early Woody Allen films Banana's and Take The Money And Run, directs Student Bodies, a tongue-in-cheek spoof of the slasher film genre. 

The thin line between comedy and horror is hilariously explored in Student Bodies, a spoof of contemporary slasher films such as Halloween, When A Stranger Calls, Friday the 13th. The body count is rising at Lamab High School where a goulashes-wearing, eggplant/chalkboard eraser/paperclip-wielding serial killer is taking out promiscuous teens at breakneck speed. When intrepid high school student, Toby (Kristen Riter) goes in search of clues that will reveal the killer’s identity, no one is safe from the comic hijinks. Teachers, fellow students, parents and the quadruple jointed janitor are all likely suspects in a film directed by Mickey Rose (co-writer on Woody Allen’s Take The Money And Run and Bananas).
