Kim (Jill Lansing) is a smart-mouthed high school senior whose boyfriend dumps her for a snobbish rich girl. Her poor grades and working class background make matters even worse, until Kim realizes that she can use her beautiful body to achieve her goals. Sexually blackmailing her teachers improves her grades and moonlighting as a prostitute pays off handsomely. But an easy life of vice pulls her deeper into corruption and crime, and soon Kim finds herself lured into the risky and bloody role of a high school aged hit girl!
Hailed as a “seedy, sleazy little gem” by the LA Times, MALIBU HIGH is a fast-paced blend of neo-noir plotting and sexploitation styled antics. Directed by Irv Berwick (HITCH HIKE TO HELL) and produced by then 18-year-old wunderkind, Lawrence D. Foldes (DON’T GO NEAR THE PARK), Vinegar Syndrome is proud to bring this one-of-a-kind exploitation classic to Blu-ray, newly restored from its original 35mm negative and loaded with bonus features.
