Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #149!

Let's go Theme Week, and let's make it a Malibu Maniacal Movie Poster Monday!

Malibu Beach  (Crown International Pictures, 1978)

I have very fond memories of watching this one on Showtime back in my misspent youth - it's a sorta sequel to The Van (1977) with a crossover character - the mighty Dugan (Stephen Oliver).

The Malibu Bikini Shop  (International Cinema, 1986)

This one is a very pleasing T+A romp with a young Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek Into Darkness) co-starring.

Malibu High  (Crown International Pictures, 1979)

This looks a lot like the other two posters, doesn't it? Another sorta innocuous beach romp with boobies, right? Well, no - Crown International really tried to pull a fast one here - this is one of their weirdest and sleaziest flicks - and brother, that's saying something right there! Kim (one time actress Jill Lansing - not the grinning chickie on the poster) is an unlikable lout who mopes through life screaming at her mother and wanting more money. So first she starts turning tricks for some extra cash; then starts seducing her male teachers for better grades, then somehow makes the jump from there to mob hit girl (!) Watch and be boggled - especially with music cues from SCTV and The People's Court thrown in for extra WTF-ness!

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Bikini, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. Malibu was a magical place in 80s teen comedies.

  2. A magical place all the time I've spent there, any decade. Malibu High is definitely the must-see of this group, highly recommend.

    1. I would agree, unless you're looking for simple T&A - then either of the other two would be more fitting.
