Director: Earl Barton
Label: Vinegar Syndrome
Ms. Tenney (Brenda Fogarty) and a group of summer school students are on a camping trip in the desert to study ancient native cultures and to hike through the Grand Canyon. But when their bus breaks down in the middle of nowhere, a trio of bikers, led by the demented Al (Zalman King) finds them and tricks them into heading out to an abandoned farmhouse. Fearing for their lives, the girls and their teacher try to survive the night and the short tempered, psycho biker Al.
A grim, violent, and suspenseful survival thriller crossed with a biker film, TRIP WITH THE TEACHER was the sole feature directorial effort from acclaimed choreographer and dancer, Earl Barton, and co-stars Robert Gribbin (Don’t Go Near the Park), Dina Ousley, and Cathy Worthington. Atmospherically photographed and tightly edited, TRIP is an unforgettable grindhouse masterpiece that’s making its Blu-ray debut from Vinegar Syndrome, newly restored from its original camera negative.
