Schoolgirl Hitchhikers

 (1973)

Schoolgirl Hitchhikers Blu-ray features poor video and decent audio in this poor Blu-ray release

Joëlle Coeur and Gilda Arancio star as a pair of lovers enjoying a blissful cross-country hike. But the carefree erotic film turns suddenly dark when the women are set upon by a band of thieves who think they've stolen their loot, and use sadistic means to force a confession.

For more about Schoolgirl Hitchhikers and the Schoolgirl Hitchhikers Blu-ray release, see Schoolgirl Hitchhikers Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Schoolgirl Hitchhikers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Of all the Jean Rollin films that Kino has released in the past year, Schoolgirl Hitchhikers looks the roughest, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's sometimes even physically difficult to watch. Like the other Rollin titles, this one is basically presented "as is," so to start, you can expect near- constant specks, vertical scratches, and errant hairs on the badly battered print. If you're accustomed to watching these kinds of films you can probably overlook the age and wear-and-tear related damage, but it's harder to get past the fact that the image frequently judders up and down inside the frame, almost nauseatingly. I'm not sure if this was a telecine problem, a weird PAL-to-NTSC issue, or an quirk with the print that was used, but it's definitely distracting. Possibly related are the slight combing artifacts that are sometimes visible when the jitteriness is at its worst, which gives the impression of an interlaced picture even though the encode is progressive scan. Strange. There's also the matter of the 35mm grain structure looking somewhat—but not entirely—smoothed over, leaving the image soft and muddy and indistinct, with a consistent lack of fine detail. If you told me I was looking at an upscaled standard definition transfer, I'd probably believe you. On top of this, the color is faded and dingy, with black levels that are closer to gray. I'll give Kino the benefit of the doubt and say they probably did as best as they could with some terrible source materials, but Schoolgirl Hitchhikers is undeniably uneasy on the eyes.


Schoolgirl Hitchhikers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Kino's disc includes two lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono tracks, one in French and the other in English. The film was shot silently, will all sound dubbed in after the fact, so pick your poison. It doesn't really matter which you chose; aside from the language, both mixes are basically the same. The audio fares much better than the video transfer, thankfully, but there are still some of the usual age-related quirks here—mostly light hisses and crackles, with some high-end peaking. The effects are uniformly thin and stagey-sounding, but the wacko score—which veers from folksy flute and guitar to crazed proto-punk 2/2 drumming—is at least decently full and clear. Dialogue is always easy to understand, even if it's not always cleanly recorded. The disc includes optional English subtitles, which appear in white inside the frame.
