Class of Nuke 'Em High, (known as Atomic High School in countries other than the United States and the United Kingdom), is a 1986 film made by cult classic B-movie production group Troma Entertainment. It was directed by Richard W. Haines and Samuel Weil. New York holographer Jason Sapan created the laser effects.



The film is about a New Jersey high school (Tromaville High School), which is conveniently located adjacent to a nuclear power plant. The facility is seeping radioactive waste, which leads inevitably to rapid and dramatic mutations amongst the student population.


The film spawned two sequels, 1991's Class of Nuke 'Em High 2: Subhumanoid Meltdown and 1994's Class of Nuke 'Em High 3: The Good, the Bad and the Subhumanoid. A fourth movie was announced in 2000, but it never got past the pre-production stage.
