Disturbing Behavior (1998) – WTF Happened to This Horror Movie?

We have fresh content on the JoBlo Horror Originals YouTube channel every day of the week, and we’re getting this week started with an episode of the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? series! With the new episode, we’re looking back at a 1998 horror film that you don’t hear referenced very often these days, Disturbing Behavior (watch it HERE). To find out all about this one, check out the video embedded above!

Directed by David Nutter from a screenplay by Scott Rosenberg, Disturbing Behavior has the following synopsis:

Steve Clark is a newcomer in the town of Cradle Bay, and he quickly realizes that there’s something odd about his high school classmates. The clique known as the “Blue Ribbons” are the eerie embodiment of academic excellence and clean living. But, like the rest of the town, they’re a little too perfect. When Steve’s rebellious friend Gavin mysteriously joins their ranks, Steve searches for the truth with fellow misfit Rachel.

The film stars James Marsden, Katie Holmes, Nick Stahl, Bruce Greenwood, William Sadler, Steve Railsback, Chad Donella, Tobias Mehler, Tygh Runyan, Katharine Isabelle, and Ethan Embry.

This is what the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie series is all about:

Hollywood has had its fair share of historically troubled productions. Whether it was casting changes, actor deaths, fired directors, in-production rewrites, constant delays, budget cuts or studio edits, these films had every intention to be a blockbuster, but were beset with unforeseen disasters. Sometimes huge hits, sometimes box office bombs. Either way, we have to ask: WTF Happened To This Horror Movie?

The Disturbing Behavior episode of WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? was Written by Emilie Black, Edited by Lance Vlcek, Narrated by Jason Hewlett, Produced by Lance Vlcek and John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
