Synopsis

When new student David (Derrel Maury) arrives at Central High, he discovers that it is lorded over by a gang of bullies who rule the school through intimidation and violence. David’s friend Mark (Andrew Stevens, THE FURY) encourages him to join this dominant clique, but instead David stands up for their victims, and the gang cripples him in retaliation. Soon David begins taking steps to end their reign of terror permanently, setting in motion an explosive cycle of killing that may not end until no one is left to graduate!

Co-starring Robert Carradine (REVENGE OF THE NERDS), Kimberly Beck (FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE FINAL CHAPTER), and Rainbeaux Smith (LEMORA: A CHILD’S TALE OF THE SUPERNATURAL), MASSACRE AT CENTRAL HIGH is the startling American debut of Dutch writer/director Renee Daalder. While packing in all the sex and violence that drive-in audiences demanded, Daalder also delivers a potent allegory about fascism and power structures in a high-school world where adults are absent. A cult and critical favorite since its 1976 release (and an evident influence on the classic HEATHERS), MASSACRE AT CENTRAL HIGH now makes its long-awaited restored and remastered BLU-RAY and DVD debut, so you can study Daalder’s classic like never before and educate yourself with all-new special features!

 

“A very good movie, a considerable filmmaking achievement.”

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

The price of this product from Synapse Films’ website is $39.95 plus a $6.00 packing/handling fee ($45.95 total). Because of new mail pricing and regulations, there is a flat $20 +$1 each additional item (USD) shipping charge to Canada (not our choice… USPS Pricing has gone up for our friends up north). The item will be billed via Paypal when the order is placed, NOT when the order is shipped. This item will be fulfilled and shipped via our San Francisco distributor, CAV Distribution, for North America. For shipping outside of North America, please order from the wonderful folks at DiabolikDVD. Our previous Steelbooks of SUSPIRIA, TENEBRAE, PHENOMENA and DEMONS have all sold out online. Don’t let this one pass you by! For ANY questions regarding the shipping of your order in North America, please contact CAV Distribution (and not Synapse Films) via this email address: massacre@cavd.com

It’s important to note that while this title is a 4000 unit limited edition, because of circumstances beyond our control, we did NOT get the entire 4000 unit run in at this time and have a lesser quantity on hand. Instead of postponing the title and ruining our surprise announcement, we will be selling this until our initial quantity is depleted between Synapse’s website and DiabolikDVD. Once all the units on hand are ordered, this title will then go on a “pre-order” status, and we will fulfill the remainder of the run when the rest of the product comes in. We cannot guarantee that the remaining units we’ll have to sell will be in before the holidays so, if you want one for yourself or for others as a holiday gift, it is suggested that you place your order now, so you are guaranteed to get one from the first batch.
