Savage Streets Reviews
You buy a bunch of weapons and kill the bastards... to an 80s soundtrack.
And that's essentially Savage Streets in a nutshell. To watch the trailer is to pretty much watch the entire movie. You don't get quite everything but you get all the main parts... so don't watch the trailer.
If you love 80s style and music mixed in with an American Graffiti style highschool drama you enjoy Savage Streets... especially if you like a little action styled revenge come time for the film to climax.
Clearly the film uses sex as the main selling point as it is not only a main part of the story (the rape) but the kids are constantly talking about it whether out on the town or even in class. There's also a very gratuitous shower scene that eventually turns into a very long girl on girl shower fight (clothing not optional here sorry).
While I think the end of the film should have taken a different path to completion, it still manages to satisfy. Linda Blair is very nice on the eyes and imo the best of the bunch... which makes sense being the main character.
This film is trash, full of trash, uses trash, and really needs a garbage man to clean it up and toss it out... but it's the right kind of trash so we'll forgive him for not taking out the garbage here cause sometimes... just sometimes... you need a little something that isn't clean and polished but more dirty and grungy.

What do you do when Linda Blair joyrides your car and dumps garbage on it? Rape her deaf-mute sister #RapistLogic.
What should have been fun example of 80's trash cinema sadly leaves a bad taste in the mouth. All the elements were there, the great cheesy soundtrack, the sleazy plot, the cast/setting, all good. But the rape scene here is so amazingly poorly judged beyond all reason that it pretty much ruins the whole movie, as grotesquely it's intercut with a borderline soft-core porn scene involving Linda Blair cat-fighting a completely nude girl in the showers. What kind of response is the director trying to achieve here? To be honest I don't want to know as it just feels like the man is more of a pervert than an actual film maker. If the movie overall was handled a little better it could have been a minor classic, but its sexulisation of abuse (intended or not) is really too morally backward -even for a sleaze picture -to be worth a watch.
