31 Days of Horror – Day 7 – “Cutting Class” (1989)

A fairly run-of-the-mill late 80’s slasher whodunit mostly notable for the horror debut of Brad Pitt. He’s fairly terrible in this, overplaying the role of the school jock to a cartoonish degree. Far better is Jill Schoelen in the role of Paula, our reluctant final girl. Not a bad movie by any measure – the production values are excellent and the score is a lot of fun – this is one of those movies that just fades from memory the second you are finished viewing it. Worth a watch for slasher fans but there are definitely much better films in the genre to choose from.
