Tags

“This is a story of those in the twilight time. Once human…now monsters, in a void between the living and the dead. Monsters to be pitied…monsters to be despised – a night with the ghouls!”

Blu Review: Vinegar Syndrome’s Trip with the Teacher (Earl Barton)

Tags

, , ,

Marked by an uber simplistic plot vaguely drawing from the then-recent success/infamy of Wes Craven’s Last House on the Left, Trip with the Teacher marries that film’s basic conceit with that of the biker film to mixed, if seldom less than interesting result.

A strip club manager (and serial killer on the side) breaks the fourth wall to offer a confessional about his life and conquests (which include a cheap homage to Psycho).  One night a Molly Ringwald-looking, butch haircut-sporting nail salon worker (and fellow serial killer) steps in to his place…and boom, they’ve discovered their perfect match.  They even both hate grapes (and wax rhapsodic about their detestation thereof).

Holy crap, this one’s the motherload.

A few weeks back, I gave a heads up to our Facebook followers that releases were dropping across the virtual desk by the metric tonne, and warned with a twinkle of bemusement that if they kept coming in at the rate they had been, this month’s Roundup was going to be a monster.

And sure enough.

At the time of writing these lines, there are over 110 albums, EPs and a handful of singles under review this month, with the potential if not likelihood that we’ll see a few more arrive before we close out and finalize (hell, there are already a handful of October-range releases on schedule for next month’s post…)

In short…yeah, this is the big one, Weezie.
