Visceral and uncompromising, Mark L. Lester’s high school thriller, Class of 1984, is one of the seminal cult movies of the 1980s. This week, the UK based 101 Films announced that they'll be giving the film its Blu-ray debut, which will be title 007 on their Black Label range.
In the film, "An idealistic and naïve music teacher (Perry King) moves to the inner city with his pregnant wife to find that his new school is plagued by drugs and violence. Determined to bring a semblance of order to his classroom, he soon clashes with the school’s dominant gang, setting off a chain of escalating events, with potentially fatal consequences."
Extras include a brand new career-retrospective interview with writer Tom Holland (Fright Night), a commentary from director Mark L. Lester (Commando) and interviews with cast and crew. The first 3,000 copies of each title will come complete with a slipcase, and a Limited Edition booklet, including a new interview with the director.
