5.0 out of 5 stars Great 60's High School Camp November 29, 2004
I bought these movies with the same expectations that i usuallly have SWV's cheasy goodness. But I actually turned out to like these movies. The soundtrack is big band jazz which seems to hit great big notes on a character's folley. The acting is pretty good. Espiecally the High school caeser in High Scool Caeser. ( he reminds me of Ray Liotta.) But to sum up, i highly recommend this set, and i will show to my friends along with the beast that killed women ( also from Something wWierd Video)

4.0 out of 5 stars SOMETHING WILD, FROM SOMETHING WEIRD! June 20, 2008
JUVENILE DELINQUENCY RUN AMOK! This trio of "Teen" dramas is just the perfect cheesy fun for a Friday night with your "main squeeze"!

1.HIGH SCHOOL BIGSHOT- Remeber those "bobby soxers" and cheerleaders you used to dream about scoring with? Well, fergit about it! Marv learns that sometimes it's best to let the jocks keep 'em! Marv is a high school senior in line for a scholarship to "college". He's broke and lives alone with his chronically unemployed, drunken father. He's got the hots for a buxom gal from the other side of the tracks, but so what? Love is blind ain't it? Fortunately for him, he learns that a million dollars in cash is being stored in the dock warehouse where he works after school. The cash is lined up for a major drug score but Marv decides that he and his dad need the cash more than the pushers! His mistake? He hires a safecracker played by Stanley Adams (Star Trek's Tribble pushing "Cyrano Jones") and if that ain't enough, he tells the "chesty" girl he likes about his plans, who then tells her dumb moose of a boyfriend! It's a wild ride this side of John Waters and Quentin Tarentino! The best of the three you'll want to watch again and again!

Three and a half stars!!!

2. HIGH SCHOOL CAESAR- The most "serious" (and boring) of the three. John Ashley, who went on to play Frankie Avalon's buddy in all of the "Beach Party" movies, is the "Caesar" who terrorizes his school mates and rules with an iron fist. He gets away with it until his violent ways lead to murder.

Two stars

3. DATE BAIT-
A Druggy returns to town only to find the gal he wanted has moved on to better things.

His brother is a two-bit dope pusher who tries to keep him out of trouble by beating up his classmates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some good stuff in this hep-cat timecapsule April 8, 2013
Verified Purchase
This triple-feature DVD was an interesting purchase for me. I had already seen "High School Caesar" on the Rhino label in 1992. I had also seen "High School Big Shot" once a few years ago and liked it. But for me, the real treat was getting "Date Bait," the original B-feature on the producer's twin bill with "High School Caesar." It's a rare film and I wanted to finally have the bottom half of the double-bill.

Although the reviews for these three titles are mixed, to me the low-down is pretty simple: "High School Big Shot" has the most dramatic plot though impeded by un-photogenic lead player, and Roger Corman's obligatory screwball villains, totally out of place in a JD feature (Corman loved "jerk" humour and subjected audiences to it in most of his films).

"High School Caesar" has a better looking cast and solid storyline. Filmed in Chillicothe, Missouri, it's a real neat time-capsule for those pre-franchise everything days when you could get a coke and hamburger at some hole-in-the-wall joint no one outside of your town ever heard of. Also on display is a '58 Caddie and, if you look for it, a gorgeous '59 Chevy Bel Aire convertible. BUT WATCH OUT! The print Something Weird used on this DVD is very soft and is also missing the crucial Reggie Perkins theme song, "High School Caesar," originally released on a 45, which is probably the best thing about the whole movie. In its place is bland incidental music by Nicholas Carras.

Finally, "Date Bait." It's obvious that the production team (O'Dale Ireland, etc.) over at Marathon Productions knew this was going to be the bottom half of their double bill with HSC--so the care that went into the former's story development and direction was not lavished on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Radio Spots January 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
If you're like me, you buy these DVD's from Something Weird as much for the radio spots as for the movies. Here's a list: Teenage Mother, Speed Lovers, The Racing Scene, Cottonpickin' Chickenpickers, Wife Child, Poor White Trash, Girls From Thunder Strip, Savages From Hell, She-Devils On Wheels, Baby Doll, and Michael & Helga.
