"These movies in my opinion are the seconed best Troma movies next to THE TOXIC AVENGER. They are extremely entertaining and loads of fun. The box set also comes with a nifty bumper sticker(Thus the title of this review)The DVDS are packed with excellent extras. Parts 2&3 are excellent also. In my opinion the best of the 3 in order are:
1.Class of Nuke'em High
2.Class of Nuke'em High Part 3: The Good The Bad and the Sub-Humanoid
3.Class of Nuke'em High Part Two
If you like Troma Get this its a must have!"
Troma fans will love it

"For all you Toxic Avenger fans out there, I highly recomment this box set. The DVD's have some really nice bonus features, and you get a lot of extra goodies with the box set. A must for Troma fans."
Good troma set

"im a huge troma fan so i purchased this nice box set.
the first movie is in the same vein as toxic avenger 1. pretty good.
the second is really weird. definately a good offering,but not the best thing troma has done.
the third...ive only watched a little bit of it. i can definately feel the 80's to 90's crossover in this one.
all in all, class of nuke em high will please toxic avenger fans, but i feel that the newer stuff is waaaaay better. make sure you have tromeo and juliet, terror firmer, and toxic avenger 4 before this set though.
definately recommended to 70's and 80's nerds who like the whole futuristic image. the so called "punks" should check this out too.
A great DVD set for Troma fans!

"I recently purchased the entire trilogy of films known as the 'Class of Nuke' Em High,' on DVD.
They're all from Troma Films, an independent production company based out of New Jersey.
Here is a review of each movie, in chronological order, they might contain spoilers, FYI.
Class of Nuke 'Em High
Unleashed in 1986, the original Class of Nuke 'Em High is, for me at least, the weakest in the trilogy. The plot revolves around Tromaville High School, which is known as 'Nuke 'Em High,' due to the fact that it's within spitting distance of a high-profile Nuclear Power Plant. Somewhere along the line, a meltdown occurs and infects the water supply of the local school. The regular students slowly become vicious, violent cretins, part of the Cretin Biker Gang, who wreak havoc on the school and around Tromaville. Warren and Christie, two young lovers are the main characters, who start to suspect something fishy after smoking a radioactive joint that causes them to hallucinate. The rest is the students versus the cretins versus the nuclear power plant versus the townspeople. If you like low-grade Z-movies, this is will tickle your fancy.
Class of Nuke 'Em High 2: Subhumanoid Meltdown
Released five years after the original, Subhumanoid Meltdown follows the story of Roger Smith, who goes to Tromaville University, which is slowly being overtaken by cretins and a race of mutants known as 'subhumanoids,' who are being manufactured by the people working in the (you guessed it) nearby nuclear power plant. I wasn't really paying attention when I watched this one, I'd been having a rough day and was falling asleep, so it's hard for me to review that which I don't understand very well. As far as I can tell, it focuses around Roger, played by Brick Bronsky, who gets tangled up in a government program to cross-breed humans and subhumanoids. He falls in love with a subhumanoid and then tragedy strikes when a rogue squirrel finds some tasty-looking radioactive material, gets infected by it and becomes Tromie, the eighty-foot radioactive squirrel from Hell! Tromie wreaks havoc on students and cretins alike, and the movie ends rather abruptly. Personally, I liked this one better than the first.
Class of Nuke 'Em High 3: The Good The Bad And The Subhumanoid
The final (?) chapter in the trilogy of Class of Nuke 'Em High movies, The Good The Bad And The Subhumanoid is easily the best in the trilogy. It follows Adlai Smith, third-generation subhumanoid son of Roger Smith and the subhumanoid he fell in love with in the second movie. Adlai is played by Brick Bronsky, who also plays Adlai's evil twin, Dick, and his own father, Roger, from part two, who is now the mayor of Tromaville. There's an evil mastermind, known as Doctor Slag (PHD) who wants to use Adlai's long lost twin separated at birth, Dick, to wreak havoc on the town, then turn it into a nuclear wasteland. The exact reasoning behind wanting to do this escapes me, but the movie was just such a blast to watch in general you won't really care. It's a fun movie, your typical good-versus-evil z-movie fare, but fun nonetheless. The 'glowing hand' bit is hilarious, too. This is Brick Bronsky in his most versatile role. I really enjoyed it, it's only available on DVD through the boxed-set, though, which is unfortunate, because the boxed-set sells for upwards of ninety dollars in various places. I got mine new for twenty bucks due to good circumstance, but if you can find it, check it out! You probably won't regret it.
And there you have it, my awesome triple-review of the whole "Class of Nuke 'Em High" trilogy.
If you haven't seen 'em, and you're a fan of Troma, check them out, it's awesome to the max.
If you're looking for sexiness or just a bit of the old ultra-violence, then this is for you!"
