Brenda's got a switchblade and she knows how to use it...

See Linda Blair (The Exorcist) take bloody revenge on a gang of low down dirty street punks in Savage Streets, a brutal journey into rape, violence, switchblades and bear traps.

When Brenda (Blair) and her all-girl gang of tough talking chicks, The Satins, refuse to party with a car full of local drug pushers called The Scars, the girls think nothing of it, but they didn t reckon on the bruised ego of Jake and his feral pack of no good thugs. Targeting Brenda s deaf sister, they invade the school and savage her, leaving her on the critical list.

Now Brenda must scour the streets in search of crossbow vengeance in a dangerous B-movie classic that s the perfect antidote to 80s high school flicks.

I love these types of films where it is all pretty much black and white and you know what you are going to get. This is all about Brenda played by ubiquitous horror queen Linda Blair (`The Exorcist', Exorcist II', `Hell Night' and `S -Club 7 Artistic Differences' now that was horrific!) She has a deaf mute sister Heather, played with girly bubble gum innocence by Linnea Quigley (`Night of the Living Dead 1985').

She has a posse of kick ass eighties bouffant haired and big shoulder padded friends. One night they run into some dope dealing punks and exact a petty revenge, this leads the gang to track them down to their school. These delinquent lads seem to spend all their time talking street nonsense and shadow boxing their own egos. Even the actions of tough, street talking Principal Underwood does not deter these heartless yobs from a cruel and violent sexual assault of Heather. So after the depth of their actions has been made clear to Brenda she decides to get into her black leather cat suit, undo the zip for extra action effect and go into super avenger mode.

Along the way we also have some love jealousy that causes a biatch fight in the ladies shower area with more `t and a' than this side of a girl locker room porno - never saw that coming, a marriage of convenience, some of the most outrageous hair styles and one or two plot holes.

But it lives up to all of the expectations and more. It has a run time of a mere eighty minutes, but does not suffer as it gives just the right amount of horror, pathos and pouty shouty acting that you come to love and expect from the genre. If you are fan of this type of movie then this is one that has to be seen - pure escapist fun, with blood, fights, attitude and bouncy bits.

Brenda, her deaf mute sister Heather and three friends are out one night, when Heather, unable to hear a car coming, steps out onto the road. Almost getting run over, the car stops and the girls instantly know the cars occupants, "the scars", a gang of dope dealers and street hustlers. Instead of getting an apology from the gang for almost hitting Heather, the girls are propositioned for sex and drugs. After a little more shouting at each other, the gang drives off to collect money from one of their "customers". A little while later, the girls see the car and decide to steal it to get their own back. The gang later discover the car abandoned and full of garbage.

A day or two after the car incident, the gang are at the school to deliver a beating to a student. One of the gang spot Heather walking into the gym, everybody goes to shower leaving Heather alone while she waits for Brenda to walk her home. One of the gang starts talking to Heather and she tries to show him some sign language. He then tries to force himself on her and she tries to escape, only to bump into the rest of the gang who then take turns to rape and beat her. Brenda and her friends go looking for Heather only to find her unconscious and bloodied on the floor, she's taken to hospital and placed in critical condition.

After another altercation between the leader of the gang called Jake and Brenda's friend, Francine, a member of the gang gains a conscience and goes to the hospital to apologise to Heather, who is in a coma. Brenda happens to walk in and forces the information out of him regarding who's responsible for the rape, armed with this information, Brenda sets out on a one woman vigilante mission to bring the gang to justice, armed with a crossbow, bear traps and a switchblade.

This is a great 80s revenge film, Linda Blair is very sexy indeed in this film as the lead, a tough as nails girl who runs around with her girl gang having a good time until her younger sister meets foul play at the hands of a gang of four boys, then its payback time!! This is a very well made hip 80s film with some good acting and some good bloody revenge death scenes and nudity, if you like 80s classics then this is a must even if its for the smoking hot Linda Blair.

THIS MOVIE WAS PRETTY GOOD, DID HAVE SOME GORE. WHEN YOUR IN A GANG LIKE THESE KIDS, SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN AND YOU GET INTO FIGHTS, PEOPLE GET HURT BAD OR DIE. THE ACTING WAS GOOD, AND THE NUDE SCENES OK. NEVER THOUGHT LINDA BLAIR WOULD SHOW US HER BOOBS (THEY MUST HAVE PAID MORE MONEY TO HER). THE 80'S MADE MANY GREAT FILMS, GOOD FILMS AND BAD ONES, THIS WAS GOOD ONE. OF COURSE JOHN VERNON IS TERRIFIC, HAD SMALL PART. THIS MOVIE SHOULD BE IN YOUR COLLECTION.

Linda Blair in glorious 80s make up with a bunch of gals that look the part, what more could you want? Savage Streets is about Blair's revenge on a group of thugs who rape her sister. But they have no idea just how kick ass mad her character is and she aims to take revenge one by one.

Cynical in parts, great in others but it is missing something- that's not to say that it isn't a good movie for what it is because it is. This Arrow release is becoming as rare as hens teeth and has a great retro cover to boot, booklet and all the works, and of course this is uncut.
