Hitch Hike to Hell(88 mins/1977): The story involves a loony deliveryman driving around in an old beat-up van and while making deliveries always happens to pick up young and reasonably attractive female hitch hikers(save for one fruit-cake). They always manage to not notice anything strange about the guy. The conversation starts out innocently enough, but when the young women mention "running away", the dorky deliveryman starts going bonkers and the rest is history. This psycho lives with his over-attentive mom and one of the cops chasing after him is "The Professor" from Gilligan's Island.
Kidnapped Coed(76 mins/1977): A rich coed girl is snatched up for ransom by a cold looking ransomer who has to constantly call and check up on his elderly mom from some isolated payphone out in the middle of nowhere. Eventually the girl "falls in love" with her captor and requests that he make passionate love to her. While waiting for the ransom to appear, they run into some odd lunatics in the back woods.
There's three trailers which include Hitch Hike to Hell(2:26), Kidnapped Coed(1:44), and Kidnapped Lover(0:59). There's also a Gallery of Exploitation Art & Greatest Hits Soundtrack(5:19) with posters of old Novak movies with 60's/70's era music. And my favorite is 'Harry Novak Box Office International'(27:04/1992) where the owner of Something Weird Video visits Harry at his Hollywood location and gets a grand tour.
Lastly there is three short subject films. 'The Hitch Hiker'(3:24) is B&W and features a blonde chick cruising around in an old automobile while a narrator extols the virtue of driving and the open road. When her car breaks down, she has trouble hitching a ride until she begins shedding some clothes. 'The Dangerous Stranger'(10:21) is a propaganda scare film that used to be shown in schools to scar the minds of young innocents(or bore them to sleep). And 'The Cautious Twins'(4:19) is an animated scare film featuring a set of boy/girl twins who seem to encounter a predator in every corner of the neighborhood.
Of the two main features, I definitely enjoyed Hitch Hike to Hell a lot more. The movie just has that bizarre "what the hell?" vibe I sometimes get when I watch low-budget oddball flicks from the 60's and 70's. Kidnapped Coed is alright but certain parts of the movie seem to drag on a bit. Keep in mind this is just my personal preference and taste. Overall this is one of the better collections from Something Weird Video.
The second film is Kidnapped Coed, and this is a film about a kidnapped girl who falls in love with her captor, and he with her. They go on a crime spree together. A great twist ending to this one. The extras are good on this disc, but the highlight is a tour thru Harry Novac's Boxoffice International studios. That is a great 30 minutes. All in all a great disc well worth the money.
