It’s been 36 years since Mickey Rose and Michael Ritchie’s silly slasher Student Bodies hit theaters. While the film did debut in the top slot, it did so with a meager $1,582,148 (that’s about $4.2 million adjusted for inflation). That said, that’s not a terrible tally for a flick that only landed on 628 screens.
Student Bodies would go on to gross a total $5,165,432 (again, with inflation calculated that amounts to roughly $14 million).
A few other August 7th arrivals also worthy of note are Invisible Agent (1942), Heavy Metal (1981) and Raising Cain (1992).
