This is a bad excuse for DVD. I have been wanting to get a copy of Jailbait Babysitter. Saw this exploitation film at the drive-in in the late '70s (with The Eager Beavers) and found out someone FINALLY released this "classic" on home video. I could have waited....
This print is from a videotape and is so blurry and dark it is hard to see what is going on. A big disappointment. I did not expect HD quality, but at least get a print that is watchable! I have others from this company and they are usually not this bad. Super Van fares much better, but it from a dirty print (which I don't mind) but its watchable. I love these drive-in classics from the '70s that were filmed for only a few dollars. Too bad more aren't released, but at least use somewhat decent prints. Skip this one! Especially the money they are asking for this junk. Movies are good, transfers horrible.

Verified Purchase
It exploited $15.49 from me. But, you will not find any outstanding movies short of mild, possibly crude, amusement in the Exploitation film genre. These types of films are hindered by low budgets, amateur story writing, and catering to market niches.

The real complaint about these movies is how poorly they were rendered to DVD. The source material for the DVD appears to be direct from poorly maintained reels. No attempt appears to be made to clean up the picture or sound. The producers of the DVD, much like those persons that produced the actual movies, were likely hindered by budget and figured a poor quality transfer would provide a Grindhouse style atmosphere.

The first movie, Supervan, is about custom vans. The custom van was an icon of the 1970s. You could live in custom van. Supervan is about a kid who eschews working in the family gas station for his dreams of winning prizes at custom van shows. He rescues a girl, the daughter of the villain, loses his van, and seeks assistance from a wonder-kid former schoolmate turned scientist. The scientist friend has made a solar powered Supervan equipped with 1970s high tech gizmos. The kid takes the Supervan to the custom van show where it amazes all and irks the villain, an oil company and auto manufacturer owner. Bumbling police, an arrogant nemesis, and lots of partying in custom vans follow. There is also a minister with a promiscuous wife. Flat attempts at humor ensue.

Please note to high profile use of citizen band (CB) radios throughout, very Smokey and the Bandit.

On a personal note, Supervan was very nostalgic. Cool custom vans aside, it was filmed in Kansas City and St. Joseph, Missouri, an area with which I was familiar.
