Editorial Reviews

Two wild teenage girls, Debbie (Kathleen Cody) and Karen (Dianne Hull, FIFTH FLOOR, ALOHA BOBBY AND ROSE) hit the road for some freedom, boys, and unexpected danger in this 1973 drive-in classic! The girls pick up a handsome Vietnam veteran (Michael Ontkean, TWIN PEAKS, SLAP SHOT, MAID TO ORDER) who is still troubled from his time at war, but is trying his best to fit in. They all end up at a hippie encounter session run by John (Ralph Waite, THE WALTONS, THE BODYGUARD) in a peaceful village by the ocean. It's all fun and games until the girls discover that a serial killer is murdering girls.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where is the rest of the movie??? February 25, 2014
By RBarber
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is one of the worst 70's drive-in movies I've ever seen, and I'm a fan of drive-in movies. The most important point is it's only 41 minutes of an 80 minute movie. What the heck Amazon, where's the rest of the movie? Even if the rest of the movie was there I don't think it would help this dog. In the first half there are so many cliches and holes in the plot the missing second half couldn't possibly fix it. Oh, if you were looking for some 70's sexploitation you won't find it here. Zero - Zip, just stupid dialog. What a bore!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice letterboxed transfer of this drive-in flick October 22, 2010
By Jobla
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The new Scorpion DVD (released in 2010) is far superior to the old VHS release of the film from the 1980's. The DVD is anamorphic widescreen, and has a couple of extras: an interview with the screenwriter and a trailer preview.

My four-star rating mainly pertains to the new DVD itself. The movie is fun enough, but not a drive-in classic. It was released in 1972 under the title HOT SUMMMER WEEK, and then later retitled GIRLS ON THE ROAD. The girls only spend the first half of the film on the road, so the retitling is a bit exploitative (wow-a drive-in movie being exploited?).

One of the girls is played by Kathleen Cody, who mainly played "the girlfriend" or "the cute girl" in some Disney comedies. It's fun to see her get a little trashy in this film, and a nice change from her normal goody-two-shoes personna.

Those who enjoy films like THE YOUNG GRADUATES (1971) and THE YOUNG CYCLE GIRLS (1978) would probably like this one, too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just not that exciting! June 5, 2014

Takes place in the 70's, but the movie is
Just not that exciting. Nothing really happens. There are plenty of hippies and beach scenes in it.
