Lizzie Borden High's class of 1972 are going through the motions at their tenth-year reunion, until deranged alum Walter Baylor, driven insane by a sadistic senior-year prank, escapes from the mental institution and crashes the party. When guests start getting killed, the other alumni, including snooty yacht salesman Bob Spinnaker, class tease Bunny Packard, and class zero Gary Nash, spring into action to uncover the culprit. Chuck Berry makes an on-stage appearance.Written by

Remember National Lampoon's 1964 High School Yearbook Parody? It's a work of absolute genius, a laugh-out-loud example of the Lampoon in its glory days. Well, back in the early '80s, I read somewhere that the Lampoon was going to produce a movie based on the yearbook parody. With the hilarity of Animal House still fresh in my mind, I was beside myself with excitement--I couldn't wait for a movie based on the '64 yearbook.
Unfortunately, the next Lampoon movie to be released was Class Reunion, a witless mess that looks as if it were edited with a dull hacksaw. I remember seeing it and thinking "They made THIS instead of a movie based on the yearbook parody?"
And after that I was afraid they thought Class Reunion WAS a movie based on the yearbook parody. In any event, it's horrible.
