*HELP ME - MOVIE TITLE NEEDED* I need the genius minds of all who lived through the 80's watching TV in Ontario. Superchannel and First Choice used to play the loop of their upcoming movies over and over and over... to the point where the only line from Risky Business I remember is "I've got a trig midterm tomorrow and I am being chased by Guido the Killer Pimp."

There was a movie advertised on the loop that I need to get out of my head... but I can't remember the name of it. Here is what I do remember: It was sort of Carrie in reverse, perhaps British. The blonde dorky-looking shy boy gets the snot knocked out of him and then somehow his 'powers' kick in and he starts killing the bullies and the mean teachers etc. He had a 'death stare' that featured prominently during a fight scene. I distinctly remember the Sex Pistols' Anarchy in the UK being used during the preview.

I know it's not a lot to go on, but somebody out there watched those stupid 'Freeview Weekends' as much as I did and knows what I am talking about. Please put me out of my misery and tell me what it was.

Thank you for your help.

If Bilal is right, you might remember the scene where the guy (actually son of Satan) afflicts his main tormentor (a big jock type) by making him grow breasts. See http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082367/reference .
