Episode 285: Massacre at Central High (1976)

Special Guests: Derrel Maury, Rex Sikes, Jeffrey Winner, Robert Carradine, Andrew Stevens
Guest Co-Hosts: Heather Drain, Doug Tilley

Rene Daalder's Massacre at Central High is the story of David (Derrel Maury), a new kid at school, who falls in with his old friend Mark (Andrew Stevens), where he finds that the so-called cool kids are running the school with an iron fist. Mark is seemingly the level-headed one amongst the quartet of bullies who intimidate everyone else. As Spoony says, the scene around here is a real bummer.

The episode includes interviews with Derrel Maury, Robert Carradine, Andrew Stevens, Rex Sikes, and Jeffrey Winner. Doug Tilley and Heather Drain join Mike to discuss this fascinating take on Lord of the Flies.

  1. These interviews are AWESOME! I am a huge fan of this movie and its stars. Enjoyed the bonus interview with Derrel Maury...I grew up seeing him all over the television in the 70s. Great stuff!
