Trip With The Teacher (1975) [1080p] [BluRay] [... REPACK
I simply cannot believe "Trip with the Teacher" at this writing, is a 1.7 here at the IMDb.The plot is thin but is tailor-made for a sleazy film: a small group of teenage girls on a field trip with their (sexy) teacher encounter three bikers - one good guy, one very bad guy, and the bad guy's bad brother (who sometimes seems to have a conscience). The bus stalls out in the desert, and the bikers have their way with the girls, especially the real sadistic biker, a nut case named Al (Zalman King). Violence, rape, and other assorted mayhem proceed."Trip with the Teacher" is a decent watch from start to finish, but the highlight, easily, is the fantastic performance of Zalman King as the sadistic Al, who constantly gives great crazy looks, makes odd noises, and sometimes has huge fits when he isn't being low-key and "cool." Before watching this film, the only thing I have ever seen Zalman King in, is the great TV-movie "Like Normal People" where he plays a nice, sensitive guy fighting for the rights of two retarded people to marry. So seeing him in such a drastically different role here was a jolt, but he does a fantastic job. He obviously is having fun, but it sure not to overact it too far. King's performance really makes this flick.His relationship with his brother, Pete, is interesting as it seems that Pete goes along with the bad stuff simply to keep Al happy. He has moments when he seems to possibly change his ways, but always sticks with Al. This, despite that Al gives indications that he'd waste Pete too if Pete lets him down. The film doesn't go too far into their relationship which is too bad, it would have given the movie a little extra bit of interest."Trip with the Teacher" is a fantastic piece of early 70's sleaze that has a few lulls but for the most part, moves along nicely and is quite tense and suspenseful. The girls are all very pretty and sexy, having that classic "70's sexy high-schooler" look. The teacher is very sexy herself and looks like a 70's porno star. The guys do a good job, even the old man at the gas station who doesn't take Al's nonsense (he regrets it though!).This is definitely a good viewing, but again, why the low rating? There are countless films much, much worse than this. Sleaze fans will not want to miss this one, made during an era when little film gems like this came and went, and were able to be made and put out in the first place.
Trip With The Teacher (1975) [1080p] [BluRay] [...
Stranded during a bus tour of the remote California countryside, a feisty teacher and her small group of sexy teenage students become the terrified targets of two nasty bikers who are intent on rape and murder.Whilst Trip With the Teacher might not be the all-out sleaze-fest that the above short synopsis suggests, there is still enough gratuitous nudity (from most of the girls), well handled action, and nasty violence to ensure that fans of low-to-no-budget 70s exploitation flicks should not be too disappointed.Director Earl Barton certainly keeps things moving along at a brisk pace with his no-nonsense direction, and the cast all put in solid performances for this kind of fare, with Zalman King (future producer of soft-core porn) being particularly memorable as the more unhinged of the two bad-guys. His portrayal of deadly nut-job Al brings to mind David Hess's Krug from The Last House on the Left: a cold, heartless killer whose capacity for cruelty knows no bounds. As the film progresses he goes from merely menacing (in his bug-eye wraparound shades), to total psychotic lunaticcomplete with facial ticks, incoherent rambling, and uncontrollable outbursts of violence.Pete (Robert Porter), Al's brother, isn't quite such a reprehensible fellow, but he just can't say no to his degenerate sibling. So when Al starts to rape and kill, good ol' Pete joins in, rather than upset his li'l bro'.Fortunately for the trapped teenagers and their teacher, a third biker, Jay (who joined the brothers on the road after helping them fix a tyre), turns out to be a nice guy, and risks his life to save them from their plight.As I write, Trip With The Teacher has an IMDb rating of 1.4, which is a downright tragedy. The film might be nasty, cheap and sometimes plain silly (the reappearance of a character who is presumed dead is particularly daft), but it's always entertaining. Don't watch this film expecting slick visuals and Oscar winning acting; enjoy it for what it isa raw piece of 'drive-in' style 'trash'.6.5 out of 10, rounded up to 7 for IMDb.
Totally bonkers psycho Alan (Zalman King in robust, divinely unhinged and uninhibited gonzo form) and his more mellow, but still quite lethal brother Peter (a sedately sinister Robert Porter) are a pair of odious, malefic, resolutely vile and unwholesome degenerate biker louts who gleefully torment, terrorize, manhandle, degrade and generally flat-out grossly mistreat a prissy school teacher (plucky, comely brunette Brenda Fogarty) and her bus load of four nubile strumpet teenage girl students (Susie Russell, Cathy Worthington, Jill Voight and Dina Ousley, all sublimely delectable fair maidens who are just ripe with adolescent purity and ingenuousness) in a remote area of the California desert.That's it for the admittedly skimpy plot and frankly who cares about some fancy-schmancy story, for what this really base and repulsive vintage 70's drive-in sleaze lacks in style and substance (plenty, man), it more than compensates for with a winning abundance of ferociously foul-minded hardcore grindhouse cinema sliminess. We've got blunt direction by Earl Barton, grainy cinematography by Erwin Jay Barer, and a get-down funky syncopated score by Igo Kantor. Moreover, we also got rape, gratuitous nudity, a thrilling motorcycle chase that's followed by an equally exciting foot chase, a truly mean misogynistic bent, a few fiercely protracted murder set pieces, a marvelously vicious last reel onslaught of mass killing and destruction, and absolutely no redeeming artistic quality to ground the assorted trashy activities in any slight semblance of unwanted pretense or needless gravity.Best of all, it's considerably enlivened and made essential viewing by the incomparable Zalman King's frenzied, overwrought, explosively insane and unrestrained scenery-gulping histrionics. With his unsightly mass of curly, unwashed greasy hair, soiled dirt-stained blue jeans, irritating wheezing, deranged cackle, nasal, slurred mumble-grumble voice, enormous wrap-around black shades, fixed, unblinking baleful stare, crazed facial expressions (King contorts his sweaty puss into a hilariously pained grimace whenever he bags somebody), scraggly five day beard, getting wackier by the minute slow burn intensity, and hysterically out of it live-wire mugging, King could pass for either David Hess' severely dysfunctional sociopathic near twin brother or a twitchy heroin addict who's in dire need of an immediate fix. An exquisitely gnarly'n'nasty nugget.
Previously released on home video as DEADLY FIELD TRIP by Monarch Home Video, TRIP WITH THE TEACHER was one of the Crown International titles not to be released by Rhino Home Video when they had the library, although it did hit DVD from Code Red on a double bill with JAILBAIT BABYSITTER and another double bill from BCI with MALIBU HIGH, followed by multi-film collection editions from BCI and Mill Creek. Derived from the original 16mm A/B roll negative, Vinegar Syndrome's 1080p24 MPEG-4 AVC 1.85:1 widescreen transfer gets off to a rough start with presumably 35mm-derived opening credits (the final shot and the closing credits are in similarly rough shape). The 16mm film shot in available light with no reflectors is harshly grainy at times and never attractive, but close-ups and the stable set-ups of the shack interior scenes look reasonably crisp. The DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0 mono track is clean, with clear dialogue and the library music cues having more presence over a rather minimalist effects track. Optional English SDH subtitles are also provided.

The following day at school, Cochise and Preach are arrested for being in the stolen car and are charged with Grand Theft Auto. While at the station, the pair are reunited with Stone and Robert, who are also being questioned. Mr. Mason, the boys' history teacher, persuades the police to release Preach and Cochise because of their clean records. Both Stone and Robert remain imprisoned due to them being repeat offenders.
The most famous film by Italian provocateur Marco Ferreri (Dillinger is Dead), La Grande bouffe was reviled on release for its perversity, decadence and attack on the bourgeoisie yet won the prestigious FIPRESCI prize after its controversial screening at the Cannes Film Festival. Four friends, played by international superstars Marcello Mastroianni, Michel Piccoli (Belle de jour), Ugo Tognazzi (Barbarella) and Philippe Noiret retreat to a country mansion where they determine to eat themselves to death whilst engaging in group sex with prostitutes and a local school teacher, who seems to be up for anything... At once jovial and sinister, the film's jet-black humour has a further twist as the reputed actors (whose characters use their own names) buck their respectable trend for a descent into fart-filled chaos that delivers a feast for the eyes and mind. 041b061a72
