Savage Streets: Special Edition  (REGION 1) (NTSC)
Linda Blair (Brenda,brunette with attitude) and Linnea Quigley (Heather) her mute-deaf sister feature in this 80's revenge/exploitation flick.
Heather narrowly escapes being run down by a gang known as the scars(lead by Jake) on a night out with Brenda and the rest of the girls.In turn they steal the scars car and wreck it. The scras exact their revenge (in time honoured exploitation fashion) and rape Heather. She screams out silently through out the ordeal. To make matters worse (if there is such a thing).The soon to be wed Franncine is thrown form a bridge to her death.
The rest of the flick is taken up as Brenda with cross bow in hand takes her revenge on the scars one-by-one.(Bear traps don't work)
This would be your typical 80's revenge/exploitation flick like many before it, during and after it, but:
The relationships between the girls is 3 dimensional(or as believable as you're likley to see in this genre). They all give a sence of that they've known each other and grown up together through school. Like a tight nit group of sisters. Yes the scars are 1 dimensional but this makes you cheer Brenda on as she off's them. Vinney (may just pass 1 dimensional) confessing to Heather as she lays in her hospital bed.(But you could call him a heavy handed plot point at best.)
As you'd expect ther's nudity ( gratuitous or not you decide). As Brenda contemplates her next move whilst sitting in a bath with a smouldering cigarette in her hand. Brenda again (this time fully clothed) fighting in the schools shower. As two girls fight naked (in shot) who don't have anything to do anything to do with the scene whatsoever.
