They work by day, take a full schedule of classes all night and somehow find time for study and an occasional date. Women in the evening curriculum at Boston’s distinguished Wendell College do a lot to get ahead in life. But there’s someone who will go to even greater heights. Someone who will do anything to get a head. A killer whose m.o. is the ritualistic decapitation of victims makes terror a required course at Night School.
Directed by Kenneth Hughes (Casino Royale) and starring Rachel Ward (The Thorn Birds, After Dark, My Sweet) in her screen debut. Leonard Mann plays the homicide lieutenant assigned to the puzzling case. He has hunches, not clues; suspects, not evidence — and a rising body count. Finals are coming early this year at Wendell, and for those who don’t make the grade, heads will roll.
