Editorial Reviews

The Babysitter:
Patricia Wymer plays Candy, the aptly named seductress babysitter who takes a job working for the powerful district attorney. A judge is about to sentence the murderous members of a motorcycle gang when Candy steps in and blackmails the D.A.

Weekend with the Babysitter:
Mona Carlton leaves to take her son on a weekend trip when Candy Wilson, the babysitter arrives. Candy gets a hold of her movie director husband, Jim Carlton and teaches him the ways of hippies, bikers, free love and narcotics. Jim soon learns this new lifestyle pales in comparison to the love he has for his wife.

The Pink Angels:
Six rugged motorcyclists gather on the side of the highway to plan an excursion to Los Angeles. Although they appear to be the burliest bunch of bikers this side of the Hell s Angels, they are actually cross-dressing madmen with an affinity for lipstick, high heels and braziers.

Blood Mania:
A scorned daughter murders her abortionist/physician father to get his inheritance and help out her junkie boyfriend. All goes according to plan until she learns that she is not the beneficiary of his will. Directed by Robert Vincent O Neil (Angel).

Single Room Furnished:
In her last performance, Jayne Mansfield portrays an innocent, voluptuous teenager who becomes a deserted pregnant wife, a waitress and a demented street-walker. This film also includes a side plot featuring a love story between two neighbors.

Van Nuys Blvd.:
Bobby, a small-town kid hears about the wild nights of cruising the boulevard in Van Nuys, California. He hops in his van and drives down to check it out. Along the way he gets involved with drag racers, topless dancers and bikers.

The Pom Pom Girls:
High school football player Johnnie is going to spend his senior year at Rosedale High School playing pranks and getting together with as many girls as possible. He and a buddy, along with two cheerleaders, are going to make their last year memorable. The Big Game with rival Hardin High School is approaching, and a prank war is about to rev into fill swing.

Malibu Beach:
Various beachgoers attempt to have their eyes on the hot new lifeguard Dina (Kim Lankford). They range from a muscle-bound idiot to pesky kids pretending to drown in order to get some mouth-to-mouth action.

VAN NUYS BLVD.
The best of this bunch, especially if you've ever actually been to Van Nuys, and the theme song is hilarious. It's mostly just a loose collection of scenes, very few of which have anything to do with cruising or Van Nuys Boulevard. It's really more of a California fantasy lifestyle teen flick than anything else, loosely based on car culture, sex in vans, the beach, etc. Director's commentary is only occasionally interesting but at least there is one. Some lame-brain comedic scenarios, a lot of toplessness, and one scene that would be right at home in American Pie. But in spite of product claims to the contrary, Bobby does not 'get involved with topless dancers and bikers'. There is dancing, there is toplessness, there are bikers of a sort, but that's not the same thing.

THE POM POM GIRLS
A fun dumb high school flick that isn't really about the Pom Pom Girls. It's mainly about rebellious football dudes (who are remarkably non-jock types) playing outrageous pranks on each other and their rival high school. Loose, freewheeling, unencumbered by plot, but enjoyable.

THE BABYSITTER
The only black-and-white movie in this bunch and a pretty solid b-movie that balances the legitimate acting of George E. Carey against the guilty pleasures of gratuitous sex, bikers, lesbians, psychedelic bands, etc. But who wrote the synopsis on the DVD package? Were they high, or did they write it two weeks after seeing it and confuse the details? Candy does not "take a job working for the powerful district attorney" - she has an affair with a prosecutor who works for the DA. Candy also does not "step in and blackmail the D.A." - she tries to stop a biker chick from blackmailing George, the prosecutor. Get your story straight, man!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Drive in DVD Series November 17, 2008
Format:DVD
The films and picture quality were very wonderful. While the other two box sets had some real duds on them, I am happy to say that every film on this box set was watchable, and enjoyable. While the movies are by no means oscar worthy, they deliver the trashy thrill fans of this genre will love. If you bought the other two, or were holding out, this is the one to grab. Happy Viewings!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great set from our friends at BCI. October 16, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here is another fine collection of Crown International Pictures' drive-in movie madness. You get eight classic b-movies all lovingly restored using new film transfers (with the exception of The Babysitter, which was mastered from PAL tape). I won't go into the plots of each film (I figure anyone who is seriously looking at this page already has an appreciation for schlock cinema and can navigate his/her way to IMDb) but I can tell you that the films look great. For example, Blood Mania's crisp, wide-screen picture looks about a thousand times better than its full frame VHS release; there are no scratches or drop-outs and the sound is fantastic.

I constantly look forward to all BCI/Navarre Corporation's releases and it always amazes me that they put out such quality products at a price far less than their competitors. Right now you can order this set for $8.99 brand-new from Amazon; that's $1.13 per film!!! A great deal! Again, the quality of these films is fantastic and it genuinely seems that whoever is mastering these sets has a real love for the genre; the transfers are great and there is always the surprising extra, for example, Van Nuys Blvd has a wonderful commentary track by the film's director, William Sachs.

If you are a life-long fan of drive-in/exploitation films or are someone who wants to know what it was all about, this collection provides a nice variety (teen, biker, beach party and horror) in the spectrum of classic cult cinema at an extremely affordable price.

4.0 out of 5 stars The joy of trash cinema September 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In Drive-In Cult Classics Volume 1, the viewer got a collection of trashy but fun dramas which focused on illicit sex and death. I have not watched Volume 2, which is a set of low-budget horror movies, some of which have even made it to Mystery Science Theater. Volume 3, however, is a true mish-mash of movies, but are overall pretty fun. All come from Crown International Pictures, a distributor of cheesy exploitation flicks (with a definite inclination towards gratuitous nudity).

Volume 3 has eight movies on four discs. On the first disc is The Babysitter and Weekend with the Babysitter, a pair of generally unrelated but similar movies. Each involves a middle-aged man (played by the same actor in both movies) having a fling with his child's babysitter and in the process getting entangled with crime. The Babysitter is the only black-and-white movie in the set.

Disc 2 has The Pink Angels and Blood Mania. Blood Mania is basically a suspense story with a lot of sex and a bit of trippiness. The Pink Angels is nominally a comedy, but it lacks any real laughs. It's the story of a gang of gay bikers. They don't actually do anything with each other, but instead are just an over-the-top collection of gay stereotypes. Even for those who find this movie likeable will be put off by the ending where things take an abrupt turn.

Things get both better and worse on Disc 3. Single Room Furnished is a rare Crown attempt to be arty, with an adaptation of a play about the tragic love life of a young woman. Unfortunately, the movie is too stagy and the acting and writing are subpar, led by Jayne Mansfield in her final role before her death in a car accident.

On the other side of Disc 3 is the first of a threesome of similar movies that continue on Disc 4.

3.0 out of 5 stars Travel back in time to the 70's With Hollywood's A-List
Good for a quick flash back to the 70's but not as enticing as one would expect. I half expected an out of sync sound track and a Kung Fu master to appear at any moment.
