* DawsonCasting: Caroline Munro, the film's most recognizable star, was about 34-35 at the time of filming. And everyone else in the high school gang is around the same age group -- late-20s to early-mid-30s.
** Averted when it turns out the elderly-looking high school kids also play themselves in their ten-year high school reunion, thus making them far more plausible as adults.

%%* FutureLoser: Played for laughs by Kip, the former star athlete. Despite ostensibly looking like a successful professional, he drives a Volkswagen Beetle that's prone to breaking down, and always changes the topic when it comes to his current job.

'''''Slaughter High''''' is a British (despite how hard it tries to not look it) SlasherFilm released in 1986, and made by the people who brought you ''Film/{{Pieces}}'' and ''Film/DontOpenTillChristmas'' (and apparently ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'', or so they claim). It concerns the misadventures of bully target Marty Rantzen, a nerdy student at Doddsville High. A DeadlyPrank ends up costing Marty his visage, and he is ultimately committed to a mental hospital due to the trauma.
