Graduation Day (1981)

Graduation Day is a horror film that was released in 1981.


It's just weeks before high school graduation and members of the track team (Paula, Sally, Ralph, Tony, Dolores and Pete) are being mysteriously and gruesomely murdered, one by one. When the team's star runner, Laura Ramstead, falls dead at the championship meet, her U.S. Navy ensign sister Anne comes to town and a series of grisly murders begin. Is Anne responsible? Or is it coach Michaels, who has been fired because of Laura's death? Perhaps it is the campus policeman who is disliked because of his over-zealous drug investigations. Or is it Laura's boyfriend, Kevin, who cannot reconcile himself to Laura's death?
