Trip With The Teacher Movie Review

A group of schoolgirls and their teacher are out on a field trip when they are tracked down and terrorized by a couple bikers. Now they have to figure out a way to escape the isolated shack they are being held in before they are killed. This is a classic example of a 70’s grindhouse exploitation movie. You have a group of scantily clad, slutty victims, psychopaths, a bit of nudity (though not as much as in many other movies similar to it), a couple rape scenes, deaths scenes, horrible acting, bad film quality, and dreadful dialogue--it’s all here. Zalman King plays head psycho killer Al, and appears to be a big fan of Last House On The Left as he seemingly tries to emulate the performance of David Hess from that film. He is much worse at it though, making his character way too laughable.

Unlike many other such films, none of the girls really stand out here as they are all pretty evenly bad. If you like watching movies for plot holes, you will love this movie--they're everywhere. This movie drags on for about the first thirty to forty minutes, all the while accompanied by the strange cheery music that seems to pop up in all grindhouse films, but it sort of takes off from there. The ending, and the cheery feel that comes with it, is simply perplexing. This is fairly standard grindhouse stuff so if you are a fan you may like this one. It is not nearly as graphic as Last House On The Left, I Spit On Your Grave, and others, and is fairly tame for an exploitation film, so it may be more easily approached for non-grindhouse fans for that reason. I enjoyed it a bit for what it was.
