At an elite school, a group of students who call themselves "The Sentinels" begin terrorizing their socially undesirable classmates. Soon, one of their targets ends up brutally murdered.
An editor of the high school paper begins to investigate and The Sentinels become even more ruthless in their behavior.
"Dangerously Close" features music from Robert Palmer ("Addicted to Love"), Fine Young Cannibals ("Suspicious Minds"), and Van Halen's version of Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman". Most notable among the tunes, however, is The Smithereens first hit, "Blood and Roses", which was chosen as the movie's theme song; a video that featured scenes from the film soon entered heavy rotation on MTV. All songs were selected by Albert Pyun himself and have made "Dangerously Close" an 80's cult film, still reviewed in the 21st century.
