5.0 out of 5 stars This ain't no after-school special, that's for sure Sept. 23 2007
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Class of 1984 is an amazing film with the power to shock audiences even a quarter of a century after its release. I mean, this film is fearless, brutally honest, and disturbing on several levels. It's easily the most intense high school film I've ever seen. Its depiction of violence and crime in the schools has been called prophetic -- and for good reason: teachers powerless to control their students, administrators unwilling to take charge, cops hamstrung by witnesses too intimidated to talk and "slap on the wrist" laws for even the most dangerous of juveniles, security guards patrolling the corridors, metal detectors at the doors, and so much more. Class of 1984 was a wake-up call that has yet to be answered all these years later.

One can only hope and pray that no public high school today is remotely like Lincoln High. When tough guy Peter Stegman (Timothy Van Patten) boasts that he runs the school, he means it. When he's not thumbing his nose at authorities or having fellow classmates assaulted, Stegman runs a bona fide criminal network, pushing drugs, pimping prostitutes, you name it. He and his gang of fellow hoodlums (including one sadistic girl) answer to no one inside or outside the graffiti-marred walls of the high school. The only person with the guts to stand up to them is, of all things, the new music teacher. Andrew Norris (Perry King) makes himself Stegman's Enemy Number One the very first day -- and that initial skirmish soon, and inevitably, turns into all-out war. If there was ever an army of one, it is Andrew Norris. The principal gave up long ago, choosing to keep looking the other way as his school comes crashing down around him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stegman and Gang Feb. 14 2006
By Chris Longden - Published on Amazon.com
A piano playing prodigy with an evil punk attitude?

May seem a little light hearted from a far, but do not be fooled, CLASS OF 1984 is gritty, violent and blatant as it can be about it.

Lincoln High School is a tough school with an even tougher group of punks, filling the students and teachers alike with nothing but fear for who will stand up against a "supreme ruling senior" Stegman and his gang of misfits?

Enter Andy Norris (Perry King) a music teacher sent from a far more prestigious school to help reinvigorate Lincoln High's flailing music department. Filled with a sense of purpose Andy first comes across the musical prodigy Stegman and thinks he can help bevel Stegmans rough "punk" edges and churn out a brilliant pianist.

Much to Andy's surprise Stegman is not so easily swayed and lashes back against Andy in every way possible (let alone imaginable).

The gloves are off between students and teachers in CLASS OF 1984, and there is no room for second place.

Who wins?

Who dies?

You'll have to find that out for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Come out, come out . . .where ever you are! Nov. 14 2005
By Bob Evans - Published on Amazon.com
I have been a fan of this movie, since seeing it in the theatre's when it came out. I was a young teen at the time, and had to sneak into the theatre to see it. I loved it, and was horrified by it at the same time. Can't say that about too many movies.

I currently have two versions of the movie, one a copy of the old VHS Tape that I got from a video rental place; and a copy off of network TV, from the mid-eighties. Sadly, the network-TV copy had less editing done to it language-wise (alot less surprisely), while being edited only for the violence and nudity. I always felt both versions I had just didn't equal a complete version. I am really glad they decided to release this movie now.

Since this hasn't yet been re-released yet, I don't have a copy of it yet. So I will tell you a few general things though about the movie, not the DVD release, and my thoughts on it.

One is that it is a cult movie. People will either really like or really hate this movie. "Class of 84" is excessively violent (while normally I don't like over-the-top violence, in this case it drives the story well), the acting is not the best (although Timothy Van Patten was really good, and very chilling), the plot was very simple, the characters had little depth to them, there was a rape scene (certainly not the most graphic I've seen in a major release, but chilling neverless) BUT the movie came together rather well.

"Class of 84" also had some good music on the movie. Opening with "I Am The Future" by Alice Cooper, also with tracks by Fear and Teenage Heads among others.

I can't wait for the DVD of this movie, and will get it when it comes out. I only hope it is a good quality release, with a lot of extra's.

Also, if you like this movie, "The Warriors", or "Bladerunner", there is a book I just read last month called "Blue Goblins" that you might want to check out. It is all about gangs, violence, drugs, and sex, set in an apocalyptic world. I would recommend it highly.

*Look for me to edit my review once I get my copy of the DVD, to reflect more what I felt on the new release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cult Classic July 24 2005
By William - Published on Amazon.com
Released last week on DVD in Australia (21 July), this cult classic is finally available in widescreen for your very own library. It has a couple of decent but not great special features. Sorry to hear the US DVD release has been postponed (try ordering from Australia at [...]

Scary, and nail-biting. Grab it if you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars "WE ARE THE FUTURE!" Jan. 30 2006
By Matthew Keller - Published on Amazon.com
In the same vein as the 1979 classic THE WARRIORS, Marc Lesters' 1982 cult hit CLASS OF 1984 takes you inside the walls of an inner city High School overwrought with drug dealers, gangs and thugs.

CLASS OF 1984 was seemingly the beginning to endless carbon copies of high school teacher vs. thug students films. Yet CLASS OF 1984 (a movie that was originally banned in the UK) with all of it's similarities to such films as DANGEROUS MINDS ('95), THE SUBSTITUTE ('96), 187 ('97), bares one striking difference. The antagonists of the film are given no redeeming qualities, none are shown as mistreated youths or having grown up in a broken home. For the most part we are shown the exact oppisite, as the "problem children" are created not by an abusive and poor home life, but yet by a silver spoon. Housing lots of violence and gore (and not to mention a bone chilling rape scene that leaves even the most hardened person thinking "that is just messed up!") CLASS OF 1984 I feel is a movie that has stood out since its release and unapologetically showed us that cold, careless killers are not always who you think they are.

I have been awaiting this film on DVD for sometime now, and thanks to Anchor Bay my wait is not much longer. Having first seen this film on VHS, I am excited to see the bonus features and commentaries that are said to accompany the DVD. So if you fancy yourself a "retro film guru" or if you are down for some good old fashion blood and guts, this DVD is a must own!!!
