There's a movie I saw part of on TV back in the late 90s, these are the details I can remember:

  • It has to be old enough to be on British TV around 1997, but it wasn't too old as it was in colour and there wasn't noticeable film grain.
  • It was in English, but I don't recall if it was American or British, I'd guess probably British as:
  • The students had uniforms which included a dark blazer
  • There was a scene in which they lock a teacher in a chemistry lab and gas him to death
  • It's not if... (1968)

Any ideas?

Not a lot to go on here. Maybe describe the uniforms a bit more. What era did the movie itself look like? Any other notable scenes? Can you describe any actors? – Kevin Howell Jun 4 '14 at 20:47
Could it be The Faculty from 1998? I don't remember too much about the story, but the students were trying to kill their alien teachers. – Meat Trademark Jun 5 '14 at 8:41
@MeatTrademark No sorry it's got to be older than that. – Crow T Robot Jun 5 '14 at 15:41
Kind of a stretch, but in Class of 1999 (1990), most students wear black leather coats and a teacher (who's an evil robot) is blown up in a chemistry lab. – Walt Jun 6 '14 at 1:46

A possibility is Unman, Wittering and Zigo (British,1971).

Some students admit to a new teacher that they murdered his predecessor. I don't recall anything about a chemistry lab and gassing however.

Unfortunately this isn't the one, though it was an excellent film, thank you very much for the answer. – Crow T Robot Aug 27 '14 at 0:52
