We all had homicidal thoughts about our annoying classmates in high school. If you didn't, rest assured that someone had them about you. Well, Deadly Class takes that teenage aggression to a whole new level by training the next generation of assassins in every subject they need to know to be able to kill effectively. The Syfy adaptation of Wes Craig and Rick Remender's graphic novel of the same name is a vivid and sometimes disturbing take on your typical high school story with literally killer stakes.

Set during the Reagan administration — apparently during an explosion of goth and punk, according to the kick-**** soundtrack and wardrobe — Deadly Class follows Marcus (Benjamin Wadsworth), a homeless teen being hunted down by the police for allegedly burning his former boys home down to the ground. He's living on the streets when he gets recruited by King's Dominion, an underground private school teaching the sons and daughters of warlords, gang leaders and mob bosses how to kill. If Marcus thought that surviving on the streets was tough, he reaches a whole new level of fight or flight within the walls of his new school and discovers an aptitude for revenge he never knew existed.
