Class of 1999 II: The Substitute (1994)

The titular teacher runs rogue through the education system, staying in one place just long enough to alienate most of his peers and parade his ignorance of the words ‘low’ and ‘key’. He goes in, kills and then blows the place to smithereens before moving on, staying ahead of a pursuing Fed.
Can we have flashbacks to the previous film to make the sequel seem better than it is?  Of course, that’s how you make a direct-to-video movie!
All jokes aside, it's bad but not as bad as it could've been, because Sasha Mitchell is a likeable guy. If not for the fact that he’s murdering people his noble intentions would be admirable. He’s a walking contradiction.
