It’s been 10 years since Lizzie Borden High School’s class of ’72 graduated, and everyone-the preppies, the hippies and the in-crowd-has returned to reminisce over good times past. But classmate Walter Baylor has returned too-with a vengeance. While the rest of the gang is misbehaving at its alma mater, Walter, who was a misunderstood freak then and a certified psychopath now, is still not over a prank played on him a decade ago and out to wreak havoc of a different sort. Roger Corman alumnus Michael Miller (Silent Rage, Jackson County Jail) directed the hilarious cast that includes Gerrit Graham (Used Cars), Michael Lerner (Barton Fink), Miriam Flynn (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation), Stephen Furst (Up the Creek), Zane Buzby (Up in Smoke), Art Evans (Die Hard 2: Die Harder), Misty Rowe (TV’s When Things Were Rotten), Anne Ramsey (Throw Momma from the Train) and soap opera legend Jacklyn Zeman (General Hospital).
