“I’m gonna cut you, white-meat!”
I remember seeing the Class of 1984 VHS tape at the local mom-and-pop video store in my hometown. As a Vestron Video title, there was something inherently dangerous and infinitely interesting about the cover art. If you were a kid in the ’80s, you probably saw the cover art for Mark L. Lester’s film on shelves, with punk rock kids on the cover proclaiming, “We are the future… and nothing can stop us!”
Synopsis: Andrew Norris (Perry King), an idealistic and naive music teacher, has moved into a new community with his pregnant wife, Diane (Merrie Lynn Ross), only to find his new job is an academic abyss. Appalled by the crime-infested school, Norris soon crosses paths with its teenage kingpin, the shrewd and sadistic Peter Stegman (Timothy Van Patten). With Norris setting his sights on reforming Stegman and the young punk declaring war on his teacher, the duo is on a collision course for a fateful showdown.

“Somewhere in the valley, there is a woman living in a basement. She’s actually amassing followers. these people believe that she will actually lead them to salvation, or whatever. And yes, she’s dangerous – but we have to see this thing through. All the way.”
Sound of My Voice is a suspenseful, mesmerizing work by first-time feature director Zal Batmanglij.
The film follows Los Angeles journalist Peter (Christopher Denham) and his girlfriend Lorna (Nicole Vicius) as they attempt to infiltrate a cult in hopes of exposing its leader as a charlatan.
