Editorial Reviews

The groovalicious, swingin' '60s, complete with miniskirts and high-hopped hairdos, sets the stage for a red-robed monk and his killer whip in The College Girl Murders. A diabolical scientist cooks up a deadly gas and schemes to make millions. But, a midnight rendezvous with a shadowy benefactor goes awry. He soon finds himself "sent to the clouds," by the mysterious red monk's mighty white whip. The poisonous gas disappears. When an innocent college girl opens her Bible during church, noxious spray spews forth and kills her instantly. Sir John and Inspector Higgins are called in to investigate. The prime suspects include the headmistress' writer-brother and a nervous, sweaty-faced professor with a yen for young girls. Meanwhile, neck-snapped bodies begin popping up all over campus. Author Edgar Wallace, the creator of the original 1933 King Kong, concocts a fantasmic display of convoluted storytelling here, shimmied up against a beyond-groovy soundtrack that'll have you doing the watusi up until der finale ende.

3.0 out of 5 stars Evil Red Abbots May 10, 2008
Format:DVD
Here's the lowdown on the College Girl Murders. First,this is an entry in Rialto Film's Edgar Wallace series from 1967 originally titled Der Monch mit der Peitsche (English: The Monk With the Whip). Its based on the oft filmed Edgar Wallace play The Terror which has been filmed numerous times. It is better in the original German, but still gives a visual wallop in this wacked out dubbed version of questionable quality. This movie is NOT a horror film its a film thriller (in German a krimi).This has an evil mastermind with a vile plan who dresses like a sinister red monk with a pointy hood who breaks peoples necks with a whip and gasses private school girls with cyanide gas from a device hidden in a hymnal.....Where else but an Edgar Wallace krimi can you find something this utterly mindbogglingly pulp! So yeah check this out its the good stuff!

3.0 out of 5 stars In the spirit of the Bond films March 28, 2008
Format:DVD
After a student at a girls' boarding school is found poisoned, an incompetent police inspector and his competent assistant and called in to solve the murder.

This 1967 murder mystery is a lot of fun. Although made in German, with German actors (it's dubbed into English), the film is set in England and clearly targeted at the English/International market. The film is very silly (I think it was intended to be light-hearted but it is also so-bad-it's-funny in parts) and has all of the elements of a James Bond movie (which had just started to become popular at around this time): a master criminal with a top secret lair, complete with a pit filled with crocodiles; a homicidal "monk" with a bull whip (actually a person in a red robe that looks like something a Klansman would wear); mad scientists, etc.

Apparently this movie is based on a novel by Edgar Wallace, but to my knowledge Edgar Wallace never wrote a novel with a plot even vaguely resembling this one (and between my father and myself, we have read most of Wallace's books). However, the story is still pretty interesting. It's not a great plot, I imagine that I will have forgotten the finer details by the end of the week, but it kept me entertained for the films duration. Being written in the 1960's, the film is as trashy as you would expect it to be (it contains the requisite beautiful young girls and lecherous middle-aged men that seem to be included in all films of this era), but looking back on it from the "enlightened" 21st century, that just adds to its charm.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable, whip snapping fun... August 20, 2011
Format:DVD
The College Girl Murders (1967) is a spooky and fun mystery thriller, that keeps you guessing. Loosely based on a story by Edgar Wallace, the plot features a whip wielding hooded killer, a number of wicked kills, an assortment of attractive young women, and a mysterious criminal mastermind that is behind all the mayhem.

A scientist develops the formula for a new poison gas, and turns it over a mysterious mastermind. The scientist's reward is death, as a figure dressed like a monk, in red robe and hood, snaps a whip around his neck. Frank Connor (Siegfried Rauch), an inmate doing time in prison, is recruited by the mastermind to act as a hit man, and employs the poison to kill a young woman. The murder brings the police, led by Inspector Higgins (Joachim Fuchsberger), and his slightly daffy superior Sir John (Siegfried Schurenberg), to the women's college the victim was attending. Soon the monk makes an appearance at the college, and other students and members of the staff begin to turn up dead, leaving the police baffled and confused. This college is the kind of place where the instructors get involved with students, and Martin Denver (Harry Riebauer), the brother of headmistress Harriet Foster (Tilly Lauenstein), is also partying with the young ladies.

Set in Britain, dubbed in English, and directed by Alfred Vohrer, The College Girl Murders is a krimi, a German production that features mostly German actors. This is a fast paced tale with a large cast, a high body count, some stylish kills, and a number of surprise twists. The mystery angle is played up nicely, as the identity and motives of the unknown mastermind arranging the various murders, is kept well hidden until the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy german film November 3, 2006
Format:DVD
I first saw this film as a kid on late night TV. The overlying sexual tension was a real turn on. Plot was silly, but the continuing thread throughout the film was the stupid murders and the dirty old man scenarios. The College Dean's sexy secretary was both erotic and funny at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like MST3K, this is one they missed. January 9, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this movie back in the mid 70's on Screaming Yellow Theater. Thought it was so goofy or campy or both. I think it was the first time I ever screen talked, long before MST3K. If you like that kinda thing, you'll like this movie.
