High school horror is a subgenre that's never going to run dry. With new crops of teenagers arriving in schools year after year - and each new crop bringing fresh fears to the table - there's always fun to be had with slashers, mad scientists, and alien invasions.
Each of the following films makes use of the fertile ground that is high school, both as a setting and a concept. They often place students in their familiar classrooms after the bell has rung and class is out, turning the hallways the students know by heart into a shadowy labyrinth of terror. Besides taking place in high schools and boarding schools, these films share something else: Many went unappreciated upon their initial release and have yet to be reappraised. Every single one of these movies will fill you with school spirit, so vote up the films that you think should make the honor roll.
