Storyline

A pretty young teacher and four of her pretty students take a minibus to some Navajo ruins, little suspecting another kind of ruin awaits. A trio of bikers begin to flirt with the gals, and when their bus breaks down, they helpfully tow the vehicle to a deserted shack. The chief biker, Al, chews up the scenery, kills folks, and rips off the teacher's clothes before raping her. The poor schoolgirls are also in for their share of abuse. Written by Manfred Gluck

The low IMDb rating is a disgrace

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.
