This latest edition in BCI's excellent series of drive-in movie collections contains a top favorite from the early 1970s drive-in theater circuit, "The Young Graduates." The film displays the adventures of blonde Mindy (Patricia Wymer), a recent high school graduate who's enjoying an affair with a slightly older teacher while still making time to hang out with hippies, bikers, and stoners. The interesting note here is that the film is more coming-of-age than exploitative. Although some of the dialog sounds as though it was written by a middle-aged scribe trying to sound "hep and with-it," the film endures as a period piece that deftly captures the spirit of the early seventies' youth culture. The picture has been letterboxed for the first time on home video, as is generally the case with the other Crown International films in this series. DRIVE-IN CULT CLASSICS VOL. 4 contains more variety than previous volumes, offering 8 nuggets from the horror/biker/sci-fi/softcore genres, all for about ten bucks. Since the films are spread over four disc sides, each film gets a full side to itself, which presents a pleasing image that doesn't suffer from compression artifacts.

HELLO sellers on the marketplace lower your prices no one is paying 40.00 dollars or more. JUST BECAUSE IT IS OOP DOES NOT MAKE IT WORTH 100.00 DOLLARS. THESE MOVIES ARE NOT THAT GOOD OR RARE! BCI has really been pumping these out as part of other sets. This set features many movies that were discontinued from other sets previously released by BCI! Unfortunely, BCI tends to discontinue production after a few months leaving collectors to scramble. Why? BCI and Navarre have called it splits and some of the BCI Library has been purchased by lousy Mill Creek. You can sure get a good deal on the complete first Ultraman series for 10.99 now! There was a Drive-In Cult Classics Vol. 5 planned but that has now been scrapped. Hey, Mill Creek quit being lousy and get this back out and do it cheap, with NO logo burned into the screen.
You can see the list of films in the other reviews. Brain Twisters is the odd one out (1991?) for a drive in Cult Classic? Umm ok guys!
Rare. Hard to find? If Amazon restocks for 9.99 good deal. But 129.00 or 43.00 from private sellers is outrageous. I got mine through a Google shopping search for 9.99! Do these people who offer these prices have a brain or a conscience? Great movies but not for that price. But as stated get the BCI stuff asap as it is going to dry up and leave these con artists to soak collectors for over 40.00 per set.

I haven't seen these, but I was curious to see which movies were included. For those of you who didn't see all the titles on the cover, here they are with their IMDB ratings (1-10 scale):

Wild Riders, 1971, 5.6
The Young Graduates, 1971, 4.6 (Bruno Kirby)
Chain Gang Women, 1971, 3.4
The Specialist, 1975, 3.6 (Adam West)
Death Machines, 1976, 2.8
The Van, 1977, 3.9 (Danny DeVito)
Don't Answer the Phone!, 1980, 4.1
Brain Twisters, 1991, 3.3

I doubt that many drive-ins ever showed Brain Twisters, but there it is. Enjoy!

Loved this movie since I first saw it March 1979 on a Saturday afternoon. My favorite part is where they are riding the motorcycle and the music that goes"doot doot doot da do da datta doot doot." I would love to know who sang the song it seems like "Sandy" would have sung it who is actress Marly Holiday? Where are all these people now? This is a great movie when I saw it 35 years ago and I still love it. I want to get that motorcycle ride music onto a cd so I can listen to it in my car.
