Student Bodies is a 1981 comedy film written and directed by Mickey Rose, with an uncredited Michael Ritchie co-directing. A spoof of slasher horror films such as Halloween, Friday the 13th, and Prom Night., Student Bodies was the first movie to satirize the thriving slasher film genre. A prominent feature of the film is a body count that is superimposed onscreen whenever a death occurs.
Many of the cast have only appeared in this film, including top-billed Kristen Riter and Matthew Goldsby. Jerry Belson (who was also an uncredited co-writer), Joe Flood, Keith Singleton and Cullen Chambers seem to be the only actors in Student Bodies that have ever made another film.
Famous quotes containing the words student and/or bodies:
“Solitude is not measured by the miles of space that intervene between a man and his fellows. The really diligent student in one of the crowded hives of Cambridge College is as solitary as a dervis in the desert.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The intellect is vagabond, and our system of education fosters restlessness. Our minds travel when our bodies are forced to stay at home. We imitate; and what is imitation but the travelling of the mind?”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
