Vestron Is About To Bring Class of 1999 Back In Session

One of my all time favorites (and also my introduction to Traci Lind of Fright Night 2) was the classic cyberpunk film Class Of 1999. This film is a great film that is equal parts sci fi and horror. Unfortunately, it has been gone for some time but now, thanks to Vestron, it’s back and better than ever. Read on for the details…

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The ultimate teaching machine spirals out of control when the Vestron Video Collector’s Series releases the sci-fi thriller Class of 1999, arriving for the first time on limited edition Blu-ray™ on January 30 from Lionsgate. A high school principal employs robotic teachers to keep order in an inner-city school, but when the androids become deadly, opposing teenage gangs must unite to save their own lives. Starring Pam Grier, Stacy Keach, and Malcolm McDowell, Class of 1999 is packed with all-new special features, including audio commentaries with director Mark L. Lester, interviews with the crew and more! Restored and remastered, the Class of 1999 Blu-ray will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.97.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS

The time is the future, and youth gang violence is so high that the areas around some schools have become “free fire zones” into which not even the police will venture. When Miles Langford

(Malcolm McDowell), the principal of Kennedy High School, decides to take his school back from the gangs, robotics specialist Dr. Robert Forrest (Stacy Keach) provides “tactical education units.” These human-like androids have been programmed to teach and are supplied with weapons to handle discipline problems. These kids will get a lesson in staying alive!
