Okay For A Cheap Thrill, 27 January 2011
Author: swinggold from United States

Ever since Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez produced and directed Death Proof and Planet of Terror, respectively, my interest in grindhouse and drive in movies has been ignited. I never knew much about these types of movies other than that they were pretty lame compared to big budget movies with high paid lead actors. My parents and aunts and uncles used to tell me stories about how these types of exploitation movies and theatrical outings were popular social gatherings on the weekends.

I got "Trip with the Teacher" as part of a box set of 100 movies at a clearance sale of a department store. This movie starred a bunch of unknowns who either did very little after this, were featured in mostly the occasional TV series or had professional acting careers early on before this. Only the lead villain went on to any kind of stardom as an executive producer.

Miss Tenny and her four female students are riding on a small school bus on a field trip to the desert to see some Indian ruins. While stopping for gas, they encounter three bikers, friendly Jay, Pete and his mysterious brother, Al. When their bus breaks down further down the road, the bikers stop to oversee the situation. While Jay wants to help, the sinister and psychotic Al has other plans for the young nubile women.

From what I've already seen of these types of movies, this is a typical biker-dominates- women sexploitation movie. The girls are all cute and showing plenty of legs in shorts and skirts. But the story is pretty thin and isn't even as interesting as the average late 60s biker movies or any of the Billy Jack or William Smith movies that explored similar themes. It's just average drive-in flick that gets teens hot enough to fog up the windows of their cars a little then throws in a little showdown at the end.

Lead baddie, Zalman King, went on to executive produce the popular cable series, "Red Shoe Diaries". Guess he's always had a thing for sexual themes, be it soft erotica or sexploitation.
