The Field Trip
"The Field Trip" is a comedy/horror film telling the story of a van load of private school girls on a field trip to the Spring Dance Mixer. Their van breaks down in the middle of the desert and they are towed to a mysterious junk yard by a psychotic-looking tow truck driver. Trapped without vehicles or phones for who knows how long until help arrives, what happens? Well, experemantation and mayhem, of course! Below are a few pictures taken while on the set of this direct to video classic by Homunculis Pictures.
