The Drifting Classroom 1987
Hyôryu kyôshitsu (original title)
1h 44min | Sci-Fi | 11 July 1987 (Japan)
An international school in Kobe, Japan is catapulted into the future after a time-slip occurs.
I voted 10 for excellent, but let me be clear; this movie is bad in the best possible ways. Almost Manos, Hands of Fate bad. You will laugh your self hoarse. The movie really is confused about itself; it doesn’t know whether it is a horror movie or a light-hearted kids movie. And what ever happened to the adults? We only really see one or two die. they just disappear. The plot holes only add to the hilarity. The ending of the movie is the funniest part, though to its poor Japanese writer, it was probably very touching before he translated it to English.
Man, I would love to interview Arthur Johnson or some of the other stars from this movie to see what the bilingual process of movie making is like. That would be A-grade movie blog material.
