Plot: What’s it about?
Frederick von Thun is back in action, our host as he reports on the sexual behaviors of teenagers. After his first investigation into the subject, the response was so overwhelming, he had to do a follow up report. This time around, he was flooded with letters from both parents and teachers, all of whom had stories to tell. A series of nine sexual encounters are explored, each a different scenario in which the sexual habits of teen schoolgirls are studied. In between these segments, insightful interviews with experts on youth culture are conducted. So in addition to the sexual behavior itself, Thun seeks to educate his audience on the whys and hows of what they’re seeing unfold. This second trip into the sexual world of schoolgirls is as mind opening and eye opening as the first, so join Frederick von Thun for another Schoolgirl Report.
This is the second volume of Schoolgirl Report, with this installment titled What Keeps Parents Awake at Night. This series of films is quite popular with fans of exploitation cinema, with thirteen volumes produced. The Schoolgirl Report series is all about the naked women, so don’t expect much else. This second volume has ample naked female flesh, not just glances either, this is full on, full frontal nudity and then some. The erotic nature of the nude women is removed however, thanks to either outlandish slapstick music or “girl in trouble” scenarios that are laughable. This isn’t the kind of movie to set the mood, its unintentional humor and documentary approach ensure that. But the movie is good at what it sets out to, which is put a whole host of women on screen in the buff, in some outrageous scenarios. Schoolgirl Report: Volume 2 is fine exploitation cinema, with tons of naked women and “so bad its good” moments, so this disc is recommended.
Video: How does it look?
Schoolgirl Report: Volume 2 is presented in 1.66:1 anamorphic widescreen. This is a solid transfer, one which retains the source’s flaws, but still looks acceptable. I’ve seen several other incarnations of this movie and without question, this is the cleanest and most detailed transfer I’ve seen. The print has grain and debris, which leads to softness, but this is not VHS level softness, just not as sharp as we’re used to. The colors look worn at times and contrast is on the softer side, but that is expected in this case. The transfer is rough around the edges, but for what it is, fans should be satisfied.
Audio: How does it sound?
The original German soundtrack is preserved, but the mono soundtrack is rather forgettable. The music is classic and sounds decent, if thin, while the other sound effects are passable. The dialogue sounds clear enough, though I don’t speak German, so I base that on the volume and basic clarity of the vocals. The soundtrack is a little harsh at times, as well as thin, but you can hear what you need to hear. This disc also includes optional English subtitles.
Supplements: What are the extras?
This disc includes no bonus materials.
