Sharpen your number two pencils and head back to school with CLASS OF 1999 (1990), Mark L. Lester's riotously entertaining sequel (of sorts) to his juvenile delinquent exploitation classic CLASS OF 1984! In the not-too-distant future, economic collapse has caused such an escalation in gang violence and drug abuse that lawless “free fire zones” require weaponized military androids to be secretly deployed as high school teachers. What could possibly go wrong? Spoiler: everything! Shot entirely in Seattle, CLASS OF 1999 boasts outrageous practical effects, high-octane car chases, insane explosions and a stellar cast of genre stalwarts including Pam Grier, Malcolm McDowell, Stacy Leach, John P. Ryan, that creepy kid from RIVER’S EDGE (Joshua John Miller) and hordes of dour punk rocker extras who inexplicably wear a lot of purple. Written by Mark Lester and C. Courtney Joyner, with input from splatterpunk author John Skipp, CLASS OF 1999 sadly foretold many societal issues from metal detectors in schools and opioid addiction to massive homelessness and the rattail hairstyle.
