Co-written and directed by Danny Steinmann with Brenda (Linda Blair) seeking retribution to the so-called vicious gang lead by Jake (Robert Dryer), after her deaf sister gets brutally raped and one of her best friends gets thrown off of a bridge.
It's sleazy, it's trashy, but it's damn entertaining exploitation fun! Some heinous stuff goes down and Linda Blair drops some hilarious lines while dispatching the justice. And the music is soo awful it's amazing. Good times this is.
3.5/5.0 stars - Grade: B
A flick full of nice music and nice scenes from that gloriou era..Blair terrific as always..!
Way more fun than it had any right to be.
As revenge-sploitation films go, it's surprisingly good.
God this movie is so over the top it's great, even if the rape scene is horrible uncomfortable in its exploitative gaze... the one liners, the soundtrack, the violence.. all 80's sleaze at its finest...
It's 80s style gange warfare in this rape/revenge meets highschool teen comedy/drama. What happens when your sister gets raped and your best friend who's about to get married gets killed simply because you took a the car of a street gang for a joy ride and dumped trash in it?
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.
I saw this film in the theaters when I was 14 years old and when it came out on VHS it became my "family" film. My Dad, Brother, Sisters, and most of all, my Mom loved this film! The Scars were so good in this film, especially Scott Mayer as Red! Also, look for Linnea Quigley in a very different role than the ones she's famous for. A female "Death Wish" film that I wish never ended!!!
wow.....what a trashy movie......it is nothing bad it is nothing good it is a trashy movie but its got a good cast of actors/actressess throughout this movie......i think that linda blair, john vernon, robert dryer, johnny venocur, sal landi, play good roles/parts throughout this movie......i think that the director of this drama/mystery/suspense/action/adventure movie had done a good job of directing this movie because you never know what 2 expect throughout this movie.....
