Quotes

[first lines]
Mr. Price: When you're the principal of a high school as I am, you reach a point where nothing astonishes you anymore. Today's teenagers are a sophisticated bunch. They know far more than most adults give them credit for. In fact they know more then many adults. The story you are about to see is a fictitious one, yet it is truth itself.

One of the best and most well made trashy exploitation flicks!
10 December 2002 | by bellagranolaSee all my reviews

This is a great film, if you are into 1960's exploitation films, which I am.This movie actually (almost) has a recognizable plot, and is simply brilliant for it's relevant irony (the parents are freaking out about their kids learning about sex and birth control, yet they are the ones getting in trouble!). It is all such a cliche (now) in real life, yet in movies it is rarely done. This is a fantastic film of it's genre. It is a non-gorey, post "Blood Feast" Herschel Gordon Lewis masterpiece. It is one of those films that is so bad it's good, but it is almost REALLY good!
