The films by the fine folks at Lloyd Kaufman’s trashy Troma Entertainment require their own critical scale—consider this one half hilariously awful and half awfully hilarious. Even if it weren’t a quasi-remake of 1986’s anarchic Class of Nuke ’Em High, it would still feel borrowed and shoddy: Back is the cheesy green-goo spouting out of heads as students turn “cretin” from toxic food. There’s also a fake educational film that instantly seems decades late to the retro-snark party.

As unlikely as it may sound, put in the plus column a whole lotta bad taste: shockingly inappropriate jokes about high-school shootings, Jerry Sandusky and George Zimmerman; a rampaging, radioactive penis that burrows into an unlucky character’s chest cavity and eats his heart. (You know, that sort of thing.) The movie hinges on a lengthy lesbian sex scene between in-on-the-joke leads Asta Paredes and Catherine Corcoran; Blue Is the Warmest Color this ain’t.
