Malibu High


by Tuna

Kim is a High School senior who has just been dumped by her boyfriend in favor of a rich girl, is still distraught over her father's suicide, and is now failing all of her classes. After a disastrous school dance, she gets drunk and makes some life decisions. She will seduce her teachers and blackmail them into giving her straight As, then she will become a hooker to get the cash she needs for the lifestyle she wants. When she kills an overly kinky John with an icepick, the pimp recognizes her potential to become one of his organization's teenage hit girls. Fortunately, he had a vacancy open in that department.

Malibu High is an example of shoddy, low budget drive-in fare. There is no aspect of this film that is not laughably bad.  Nobody in the cast sounds like a Californian. The star, Jill Lansing, looks ten to fifteen years too old to be in high school, and overacts so egregiously that this would be her one and only film appearance. The ludicrous plot leads up to a corny "moral" ending, but the dialogue is even more cornball than the plot, and the music queues are still worse. 

In other words, our kind of movie!

Depends on your perspective. It's one of the worst movies I've ever seen, but it is so bad that it is wildly entertaining to watch.


  • Jill Lansing and Tammy Taylor show breasts.


No major reviews.



It was a drive-in film and the DVD is presented in widescreen format, so it may have been intended for theaters at one time.
