Class of Nuke ‘Em High is a misguided attempt to extract grossout humor from the very real concerns about nuclear power plants.

Students at Tromaville High School are exposed to nuclear waste from a nearby power plant. Attractive couple Chrissy (Janelle Brady) and Warren (Gilbert Brenton) are exposed to a mild dose of radiation in the form of tainted reefers.

First effect is to cause them to make love at a party. Next day, both go through temporary physical transformations (expanding stomachs and necks), with Chrissy emitting a small, lizardlike creature.

Level of violence is extreme with slapstick overtures that are intended to be funny.
