Cutting Class: Brad Pitt slasher is getting a 4K release

The 1989 slasher Cutting Class, starring Brad Pitt, is getting a 4K release from MVD Rewind Collection in 2024

Back in 1989, just a few years before he broke into the Hollywood A-list level, Brad Pitt starred alongside Donovan Leitch, Jill Schoelen, Roddy McDowall, and Martin Mull in the slasher movie Cutting Class – and MVD Rewind Collection has announced that they will be celebrating the 35th anniversary of Cutting Class by giving the film a 4K release on January 16th!

Directed by Rospo Pallenberg from a screenplay written by Steve Slavkin, Cutting Class has the following synopsis: High school can be murder. Just ask Paula (Jill Schoelen, The Stepfather). Her overprotective father disappears during a weekend hunting trip. She’s being romantically pursued by Brian Woods (Donovan Leitch, The Blob), a creepy classmate who recently graduated from a mental institution. Her jealous jock boyfriend Dwight (Brad Pitt, Moneyball) is looking for any reason to release his juvenile rage. The lecherous school principle Mr. Dante (Roddy McDowall, Fright Night) is after her student body, and her friends and teachers are rapidly falling victim to a silent, shadowy mass-murder. As the body count rises, Paula begins to suspect that any one of her reckless suitors could be the twisted killer. But unless she learns his identity soon, her high school education will quickly come to a nasty end.
