CLASS OF 1999. Mark L. Lester, dir., prod. USA: Taurus Entertainment, 1990. Stacy Keach, Malcolm McDowell, stars.

Keach's greedy businessman gets high school principal McDowell to try out as teachers insufficiently reprogrammed combat robots. The human-looking robots turn Terminator (q.v. below, as a film title) and are finally destroyed by student gangs at the school. Less intertextual than it might be (see below, CLOCKWORK ORANGE), and less funny. Rev. Dan Persons, Cinefantastique 21.2 [Sept. 1990]: 52.
