Back of Box:
The Troma Team is proud to
present the suspenseful, heart-stopping shocks and mystery of GRADUATION DAY. It's just weeks before high school graduation
and members of the track team are being mysteriously and gruesomely murdered, one at a time. When the team's star runner,
Laura Ramstead, falls dead at the end of a championship meet, her sister Anne (Patch MacKenzie) comes to town and a series
of grisly murders begin. Is Anne responsible? Or is it coach Michaels (Christopher George) who has been fired
because of Laura's death? Perhaps it's the campus policeman who is disliked because of his over-zealous drug investigations.
Or is it Laura's boyfriend, Kevin (E. Danny Murphy), who can't reconcile himself to Laura's death? You won't want to
see GRADUATION DAY alone!

of the Toxic Avenger

The blonde girl in the number 46 track jersey was cut out of
the film as much as possible because she was fired due to a refusal to fulfill the nudity requirements. Linnea Quigley
was hired to replace her.
Towards the end of the film, when the dead bodies are discovered under the bleachers, Linnea
Quigley's decapitated head is never found. Linnea also wasn't a part of the cast until after they shot that scene. Due
to this fact, the decapitated head of the actress she replaced remains in the scene.
