It’s been a long, funky ride with Impulse Pictures’ string of Schoolgirl Report releases, but the series finally comes to a close with this thirteenth installment, a film which sadly does not live up to the raunchy and fun extremes set up on earlier installments of this classic sexploitation series from Germany.

It’s true that the tail end of the 1970s-with the advent of “porno chic” and the increasingly lax censorship laws within Europe and the Americas-impacted the level of extremity with which the Schoolgirl Report series lent to its vignette-based series of films (even releasing a XXX-flavored offshoot, simply titled Schoolgirl Report Porno), yet this final Schoolgirl outing is more than a bit tame, even by the series’ own standards.

The theme for this film is Don’t Forget Love Before Sex,¬†and its short, sexy stories focus primarily upon this theme, as the cast of a student play of Romeo and Juliet regale their teacher and fellow students with vignettes dealing with such subjects as love triangles and youthful promiscuity. Of course, followers of the Schoolgirl Report have also come to expect plenty of controversial and dramatic story angles, as well, and this final volume does deliver this with stories of a teenage alcoholic who is sexually abused by a family friend, while the opening story deals with a blackmail victim who falls afoul of a murder plot.

Still, none of the stories really capture the viewer’s interest with the sort loose sexual antics or eyebrow raising tonal shifts that earlier volumes contained, with the series sadly falling into caricature and repetition by this point. One other strong aspect of the Schoolgirl Report series which thankfully continues here is the funky, groovy musical score, here edited and compiled by a K.A. Dilz. Elsewhere, however, the lack of engaging characters and the overall atmosphere of “been there, done that,” leaves Schoolgirl Report Vol. 13 something of a disappointment for fans of this legendary German series

The DVD:

Impulse Pictures presents this final Schoolgirl Report film with its usual level of quality, and the anamorphic widescreen presentation looks great throughout, with only a small bit of softness attached to the picture. As usual, there are no extras here, but for fans of this series who feel the need to finalize their collection will be well pleased with the work here from Impulse.
