A series of murders happened at Crippen High School in 1982 with the killer never caught. Years later, Harry Sleerik, sleazy movie producer, has decided to film a horror movie at the sight of the school. Then, the actors start disappearing... Is it the sole survivor of the original massacre who's returned as the film's screenwriter? The principal of the school who insists on playing the same role in the movie? The creepy school janitor? The former high school jock playing the leading man?

A 1987 {{Horror}} film that's tremendously self-aware and... really pretty bad. But it was Creator/GeorgeClooney's film debut as well as [[Series/{{Alice1976}} Philip McKeon]]'s film debut.

* DramaticUnmask

to:

* DramaticUnmaskClownCarBase: An understated version where, in the background of a scene, a dozen crew members and actors emerge from a single bathroom stall.
* DramaticUnmask: [[spoiler:The janitor, Amos]] is suddenly unmasked to reveal [[spoiler:Principal Kastleman]].



* MindScrew

to:

* MindScrewMindScrew: The movie routinely mixes actual scenes with scenes where the camera cuts back to show it's part of the movie they're filming. [[spoiler:And in the end, the film crew faked almost all of it]].



* OffWithHisHead

to:

* OffWithHisHeadOffWithHisHead: Done in shadow form. Later, some of the heads appear for a later scene.

* UnfortunateImplications: In-universe, an actress asks why they have to show her character getting raped and why her breasts need to be shown while it's happening, explaining how damaging stuff like this can be to women in real life.

* NightmareFetishist: The female cop has a '''thing''' for blood. There's also the fact that she's seen eating and drinking while on duty, even though it's implied she was handling [[spoiler: what might have been]] real human organs.

* EngineeredPublicConfession: Subverted. [[spoiler: There's a good chance the film crew had discovered the corpse-filled classroom and used the movie as a way to draw out the real killer, the principal, and expose him to the police.]]



* WhiteMaskOfDoom: The killer.

to:

* StoryWithinAStory: [[spoiler: The reason the film crew turned out to be alive was because none of them had actually been killed. The film they were making wasn't about the Crippen High murders, it was about a film crew trying to produce a horror picture in an abandoned high school and being picked off one by one. All of the deaths were actually being staged and filmed, as well as when the police were trying to put together all the "dead bodies."]]
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: The Crippen High killer.

* SpiritualSuccessor: ''{{Film/Scream}}'' can be considered one to this film, despite it being a B-list movie. It is about the dramatization of "actual" events, with the director demanding more blood and FanService, lines about getting naked in horror films being degrading to an actress... As the description says, it's very self-aware despite (or because of) not being very good. Oh, and the killer's costume looks ''very'' similar to Ghostface.
