Trashy but interesting b-movie
11 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Malibu high is a trashy but interesting b-movie,with no big name stars. a calculating high school student(Jill Lansing)turns prostitute to get better grades,and afterwords for money.she turns out to be a sociopath and gets worse.i first seen this on the late late show on television where it was cut up,and later seen the uncut video.its a disturbing movie Jill Lansing's character is pretty and sexy but ugly inside,she does what she has to do to get what she wants,even murder.there was a so called sequel to this called the graduates of Malibu high also known as the young warriors in 1983.but i would call it a sequel in name only. a crown international release,remember them?they churned out classic b movies like the hearse,galaxina(starring the late Dorothy stratton)and blood of Dracula's castle(AL Adamson's classic)check out the disco dancing scene that will tell you its 1979.remember disco,customized vans,CB radios.ill give this little seen gem 8 out of 10.
