A 1975 exploitation dud, this is the kind of movie Cinemax screens late at night. It's not just bad, it's execrable.

Definitely a product of its time.

To watch Switchblade Sisters is to visit a never-never land of shopworn media images colliding in a tabloid high school of the mind.

Just good enough to make it understandable why someone else might really like it. And it's just bad enough to make you wonder about such a person.

This movie never pretends to be more than what it is, which is pure exploitation.

The acting is so bad that apparently none of the performers ever got another job in the movies, and the costumes in Ben Hur seem less dated that those on display here.

Cinema Crazed

The gung-ho corniness, colorful characters, and unflinching bad-ass attitude are just so damn entertaining, and Hill is never apologetic...

This is a film with all the itchily sweet passion of a Shangri-Las anthem, cranked up to full volume.

Like most things that fall over into the ever expanding trap of 70s revivalism, it's kitsch and it's fun but in a rather restricted way.

Austin Chronicle

A nifty little movie, full of all the lurid teases, off-the-cuff production values, and trenchant topicality that make exploitation movies the fascinating cultural time capsules and filmmaking treasures that they are.

Switchblade, like most of its genre cousins, tries to live up to the impact of its generative poster, and it comes very close to delivering what the artwork promises.

A terrific example of efficient, resourceful filmmaking, and its depiction of urban ills is, if anything, all too prophetic.

So hilarious, so trashy, and so utterly enjoyable that it truly must be seen to be believed.
