Years ago, a madman escaped from an asylum, slashing his way through to freedom and continuing his bloody rampage at nearby Saint Trinian’s College. Now, years later, new teacher Julie Parker, begins to sense that something isn’t quite right at the small town college and it’s not long before her students and fellow faculty members begin disappearing or, worse yet, are found brutally butchered. Determined to uncover the truth behind the ongoing violence, Julie begins her own investigation, unaware that she’s putting herself at risk of becoming the ruthless murderer’s next target.
A classic of no-budget horror filmmaking, Richard W. Haines’ SPLATTER UNIVERSITY is a trashy and consciously absurd 80s slasher that revels in the best (and worst) tropes of the genre. Sporting bloody kills, absurd twists, and a face smacking finale, Vinegar Syndrome presents SPLATTER UNIVERSITY in its North American Blu-ray debut, sporting a brand new (and first ever) restoration from its original 16mm camera negative.
