2.0 out of 5 stars Banal April 8, 2005
Format:DVD
Perhaps it was only a matter of time before someone mixed together the spring break movie with a slasher flick. Or, should I say, a slasher flick with a spring break movie? That such a fusion took place in the late 1980s should come as no surprise since that decade saw the flowering and subsequent wilting of both of these cinematic genres. What is surprising, to me at least, is that none other than longtime Italian sleaze director Umberto Lenzi presided over this questionable hybrid. Lenzi, who made tons of memorable films from as far back as the 1950s, is probably best known for giving birth to the notorious cannibal craze with "Man From Deep River" and continuing the tradition with the nauseating "Eaten Alive." He also made the great giallo "Seven-Blood Stained Orchids," the over the top thriller "Violent Protection," and a bunch of micro-budget war flicks that have unfortunately not found their way to DVD yet. How did Lenzi go from gialli and cannibal flicks to "Welcome to Spring Break"? Because Italian film directors followed the money. If slashers made money, they made slashers. If movies about spring break made money, they made spring break movies. Easy, eh?

"Welcome to Spring Break" introduces us to several divergent individuals. First we've got college football player Skip (Nicolas De Toth) and his buddy Ronnie (Rawley Valverde) arriving in Florida to let off a little steam. Skippy botched a play during a big bowl game and constantly hears about it from people he runs into, so he's hoping some fun and sun will alleviate his woes.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best ever April 25, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
welcome to spring break is an instant classic. the viewer's emotional pitch is kept on edge as the tension rachets up incrementally, from the scene where the wide reciever asks "You want to get naked" and then states "You want to get sloppy," to the scene where the quarterback and his girl make out intensely for 30 seconds while doing 45 in a residential neighbohood. there are many fine touches added, such as the doctor who cannot go more than a minute without taking a slug from his hip flask. in conclusion, any movie that features a priest dressed as a biker who kills various oversexed and underdressed spring break revelers is all right by me.

3.0 out of 5 stars lenzi's later day funfest October 25, 2008
Format:DVD
This movie is alot of fun. Unfortunately it's in 4:3 fullscreen and it was shot in widescreen , I bought the pal region 2 version called 'nightmare beach" which is in widescreen (it's the same movie.)This is a giallo/slasher flick that has roots back to the truly classic giallos like (by every critics standard) 'what have they done to your daughters?" (1974) and the great giallo "strip nude for your killer" (1976) those movies featured a helmeted motorcycle killer as well. And they are way above this one in every aspect. That being said this is a fun movie that transports you back to spring break in the late 1980's. The music is great hard rocking fun and the clothes styles were definately interesting. Much more fun than the sad baggy looking and bland styles of today. Umberto Lenzi did make some great movies and this is far better than his 1990's 'black demons" but it is not as good as 'eyeball" or the great
giallo "seven blood stained orchids" in which lenzi did everything right. This came out a year before lenzi's 'ghosthouse' which is alot of fun too. If you don't expect greatness then you can sit back and just have a fun ride from the 1980's as the killer finds ways to off the spring breakers. It's nothing new and at the time was among the many average horror movies out there but it's still well shot and the acting is not that bad as others claimed. This can't compare in bad acting to the many horror movies that have come out that were shot by someguy and his friends with no money. Even many of those are at least entertaining though. This is above them and not as good as the older giallos from the seventies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Classic April 28, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Heads bursting into flames, vigilante priests, and John Saxon. What do these things all have in common? Cinema gold! This film includes such memorable scenes as the overweight, drunk college football fan who jumps into the backseat of the Florida star quarterback's convertible yelling, "Yeah, gators!" Also, one cannot omit the exceptional scene in which the Florida wide receiver attempts to pick a fight with the psycho priest. The wide receiver touches the priests motorcycle and his head instantly bursts into flames. To anyone looking for quality thespians in a cinematic gem, let "Welcome to Spring Break" be your repartee.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Best Worst Movie Not to be a Cult Classic! October 16, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the type of movie that should be a cult classic. It has everything cult classics need: A semi-decent idea but ... Main characters with minimal recognition; terrible acting by actors who were obviously chosen because they were related to the director or producer; really bad writers; and lots of good looking bikers and hard bodies in bikinis. Now doesn't that sound like a cult classic in the making!

This movie is a joke, right?. What is John Saxon doing in this?. It's a good thing no one has ever heard of this movie. They should stay uninformed.
