Horror movies that take place in school/college or on an island?

Can you guys recommend me some horror movies that take place in a high school/college or on an island? I know this is an odd question, but I have always found these environments interesting to horror.

Examples:
Island: A Perfect Getaway
School/College: Cry Wolf

High School: The Faculty is the first one that comes to mind.

Re: Horror movies that take place in school/college or on an island?

More good island horror: The Wicker Man (go with the original, though both take place on an island), Island of Terror (Peter Cushing versus creepy bone-sucking mutants!), Horror on Snape Island (AKA Tower of Evil - early 70s slasher). If you want something less known, Dark Waters (1993 Mariano Baino movie) is pretty good - if you don't mind a bit of supernatural Nunsploitation. The island locale features prominently in all of these.

There are countless numbers of horror movies set at schools. The most recent one I saw was a Danish sci-fi/horror/comedy called The Substitute (maybe a little unusual in that it was set at a grade school). I liked it, though it was less of a horror movie than the cover implied (I thought it was closer in tone to The Goonies than stuff like Scream or The Faculty).

Re: Horror movies that take place in school/college or on an island?

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. Can anyone help me name this film? It is about a bunch of losers at school who dress up in costumes and get revenge on the people who tormented them. I believe it is a fairly recent movie and I remember hearing about it a while ago, but can't remember what the title is. It is really bugging me. I remember most people not liking it, but I want to decide for myself. Thanks.

How did you guys miss such a classic as Piñata: Survival Island? Shame on you.
