Blackboard Massacre

Massacre at Central High

Massacre at Central High is a 1976 U.S. horror film directed by Dutch director Rene Daalder, a protege of Russ Meyer. Despite its title, it is not at all a slasher film; the movie is more an odd and violent political allegory, which tells the story of a series of revenge killings at a fictional high school. The cast was largely made up of unknowns, but included well-known actors Robert Carradine, Lani O'Grady, Kimberly Beck, and Andrew Stevens.

The movie was also known as Blackboard Massacre. It was shot on 35mm film, and had a running time of 87 minutes.

The movie has been described as "predicting punk and Columbine" , and as "the epitome of the '70s meathead ethic fused with an apt social commentary" The much-better-known 1989 film Heathers borrowed several plot elements from Massacre at Central High.
