Massacre at Central High stars Andrew Stevens, Robert Carradine, Kimberly Beck, Ray Underwood, and Steve Bond.

In the film, a keen young athletics student moves to a Californian high school and is shocked to discover that his fellow students are being bullied by a rogue gang. He encourages them to take a stand but meets much apathy and ends up having his leg smashed up by the gang. He then decides to get his revenge and begins to wage a violent one-man war against the bullies, disposing of them one by one.
