Episode 4: Outlaw High

The VCinema gang look fondly back at their high school days with the hostage sieges, food fights, stunt mannequins, pep rallies, and teen suicides.  Oh crap, they actually just review Sogo Ishii’s debut 1978 film Panic High School.  Also included is the usual shenanigans: the Netflix Instant Watch, film discussion question (“Does cult film deserve to be revered and homaged?”), Twitter question (“What’s your favorite high school movie?”), and other blathering about film.  They also start shopping for party favors for their first big themed episode.  Details included in this episode
