YMMV / Slaughter High

  • Harsher in Hindsight: Marty's mistreatment by his classmates becomes even more disturbing when you realize Simon Scuddamore, the actor who played him, committed suicide shortly after the film's release.
    • And even worse when you realize that the film was made before Columbine, which many believed was caused by bullying.
  • Hell Is That Noise: The jingling bells on Marty's jester hat.
  • Idiot Plot: Because one door was electrified, the cast decide to stay inside the school, despite all the windows they could escape through.
  • Narm: After Marty crashes through a window, the Final Girl throws a spear at him, which misses. She does this so half-heartedly that it's funny.
  • Nausea Fuel: Ted's guts spilling out after he drinks a poisoned can of beer, and Shirley melting in the acid bath.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Coach in the scenes set in past, who has a no-nonsense attitude towards the students' shenanigans.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Ted drinks an innocuous-looking can of beer, which causes his guts to melt.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Billy Hartman, who played Frank, would go on to portray Terry Woods in Emmerdale.
  • Rooting for the Empire: Because they all had a part in pointlessly tormenting Marty, it's hard to care about the main cast.
  • The Untwist: Marty being the Killer. Seeing how ridiculously obvious the foreshadowing, the fact he is the only suspect and how he wears a mask for most of the movie, you'd be forgiven to expect a twist by having the killer be someone else. But no, it really is him.
