    I would have thought this a no-brainer, what with the Scary Movie flicks turning some tidy profits. Paramount should hop on board the "spoof resurgence" and release this 1981 ridiculously silly slasher satire!
    Horse Head Bookends and "The Breather"! And you gotta love the running body count that appears onscreen.
    Bottom Line: Any movie that features murder by eggplant is a DVD I want to own.
    Anyone with me on this one, or am I the only 29-year old man who remembers the "ejaculating telephone" gag?
    Or "Argh! I'm gonna kill the kid with the gum!"
    I know Student Bodies probably isn't on Paramount's "to release this decade" list, but dammit - I'd buy one!

    I once saw a used laserdisc of this for sale, I'm now kicking myself for not buying it (I do have a VHS copy, but it's not the same.) This is the only movie I know of that has a rating tag in the MIDDLE of the movie!

    Y'know, I'd forgotten all about this one. Bring it on! I'll buy it.
    Also, how about the similarly-themed comedy (not quite a spoof), Pretty Maids All In A Row? Written by Gene Roddenberry(!), starring Rock Hudson, Angie Dickenson (schwing), and featuring Telly Savalas, Roddy McDowell, and James "Scotty" Doohan. 1971 MGM release directed by Roger "Barbarella" Vadim. I'd love that film on DVD, too!

    I finally tracked down this laserdisc a few years ago. I'd replace it with a widescreen DVD in a heartbeat.

    Yes, Paramount...PLEASE release this one! I saw it on HBO one night and it was hysterical! I'd definitely pick this one up.
    And PLEASE do NOT change the cover artwork. That VHS artwork is classic!

    After my sister bought a copy off of e-bay for me, since it was one of my all time favorites (not quite 2001 or Fight Club, but still...) I love horror films and always have and since catching this on a late night showing and catching hell for not being in bed on time the next morning, my life became a furtive, wasted effort at attempting to locate those two magic words together in the movie guide section of TVGuide. Granted the VHS is nice for when the mood strikes, DVD would serve even better. Hopefully I can get my self a copy and paperclip it somewhere between my horse head bookends...

    I love horror, and I usually enjoy spoofs, so I obviouly love this film. To tell you the truth, this is my absolute favorite spoof of all time! I would by it on DVD in a heartbeat! Extras would be cool, and I agree that you need to KEEP the same cover art!

    I've tried finding this movies in video stores with no success whatsoever. I love slasher films, and spoofs are always a good laugh, so I know I would love Student Bodies. If it is ever released on DVD I would pick it up ASAP. Looks like the perfect release to coinside with the Scary Movie 2 DVD release. Please Paramount!

    I'd buy "Student Bodies" on DVD. (It's not available on VHS any more to I believe.) Please Paramount?

    Yes, this would get added to the collection without fail. Also, I'd like to see "Saturday the 14th" ,(though I'm not sure it's Paramount).
