Product Description

This killer comedy is the original teenage parody horror film taken to the extreme! The screams are as frequent as the laughs as a crazed, heavy-breathing murderer terrorizes Lamab High with a series of mysterious deaths. Everyone is a suspect and no one is safe from the hilarious twists and turns as Breather terrorizes and kills sex-starved couples. When the body count rises, one student attempts to solve the mystery and instead finds herself a suspect. Does she survive or become another victim? It s anyone s guess in this satirical romp of horror!

This movie is funny beyond belief....a killa crazy comedy.
Paramount Studios should absolutely finally release this movie on dvd.

When Student Bodies first came out in 1981 it was completely unique, no one had ever done a horror spoof before. Hense the original Movie poster proclaiming "At last The world's first comedy horror movie".
Student Bodies was written and directed by Mickey Rose, who collaborated with Woody Allen on the screenplays for Allen's early films.
The film had a completely unknown and still unknown cast *Kristen Riter* Toby Badger, *Matt Goldsby* Hardy, *Richard Brando* The Breather,
Student Bodies had a notoriously difficult production and producer Michael Ritchie, Ritchie opted to take his name off the picture, instead using the Director's Guild pseudonym.

This movie has become quite popular since it's release on video in the early eighties and is still available on VHS and can be seen sometimes on late night/early morning television becoming a CULT CLASSIC.....BUT WHEN IS THIS CULT CLASSIC GOING TO BE AVAILABLE ON DVD?

This killa Crazy comedy is every teenage horror film you've ever seen from the 70's and 80's and every horror movie cliche is taken to hilarous extremes of laughter. The screams are as frequent as the laughs as a crazy murderer or maybe murderess terrorizes Lamab High.

But the senior class is not going to take it lying down most of all Toby Badger...*KRISTEN RITER*. a mousy good girl you know like in all horror films Toby's the virgin. Toby's putting herslef and her beau in some silly positions so she can find out who's "the breather". a killer who is murdering her non-viriginal friends with a pair of rubber gloves and garbage bags and other unusal weapons of choice.

If you think the horror spoof comedy genre started with Scary Movie and Shriek if You Know What I Did Last Friday the Thirteenth, think again. Horror was all the rage in the early 1980s (as the introduction to this film points out, all 26 horror movies released during the previous year made a profit), so it comes as no surprise that some filmmaker would come along and try to exploit the genre for laughs (and money) - and so was born Student Bodies. I know what you're thinking when you see the title - naked girls - but I'm going to have to disappoint you on that score. Even though the film received an R rating, there's almost nothing R-rated about it - no actual nudity, very little profanity, and only the slightest amount of blood. Sure, kids keep getting killed for having sex, but none of them actually live long enough to do it. And the killer uses whatever he can find, so forget about machetes and knives and think eggplant, erasers, and paper clips.

A distinctly Halloween-esque opening scene introduces us to The Breather. Actually, you could say The Breather introduces himself to us because, even though the camera shows us each scene from his perspective, he maintains a fairly constant monologue around all of his heavy breathing. In this fashion, he gives us a number of the film's funniest lines, such as when he's struggling to climb stairs, stepping in chewing gum, questioning his choice of footwear, or calling in to announce when and where he is going to kill next (using a rubber chicken to disguise his voice). We don't know who the killer really is until the end, of course, but there's no shortage of suspects at the local high school. Don't expect any yellow tape to appear around crime scenes, by the way, because the school conducts its own investigation.

PARAMOUNT studios should absolutely release this movie on dvd
I know this is a low budget horror spoof. But this is one of my favorite films ever. this Film is a spoof of all the 70's and 80's horror films. They have ever single horror cliche but it's funny as hell.
unless you are into cult/ low budget fims you may have never heard of this film. it sometimes plays late night on cinemax/hbo. Plus if your not into 70's and 80's horror films you might not get all the jokes but who cares it still funny.
SYNOPSIS:
A small town's resident "heavy breather" victimizes a bevy of sex-crazed students in this comic (and mostly gore-free) Cult Film.
Toby( Kristen Riter) is a sexualy repressed teen. her friends are dropping like flies. Her partner in crime is her equally sexualy repressed boyfriend Hardy(Matt Goldsby). Some how Toby becomes a suspect so toby and Hardy must put themselves in some weird and very hilarous situations to clear her name.
If you loved Scary movie and 80's cult films this movie is for you. This is the original horror comedy spoof.
Before Scary movie there was STUDENT BODIES
This cult movie should absolutely should be finally released on dvd

With help from her boyfriend Hardy...*MATT GOLDSBY*(Student Bodies,Frances) who's the town nerd of sorts who's always there by Toby's side if she needs him. Hardy's trying his best to protect and save Toby. But at the same time trying to protect and save himself.
The characters are Ducking such lethal weapons such as paper clips, blackboard erasers and horse-head bookends, they set about confronting the mysterious "Breather" and other things that go bump in the night.
