director Danny Steinmann
Is it just me or is there a bit of a Grease vibe to the girl gang/boy gang of Savage Streets? Are the Scars as to the Satins as the T-birds are to the Pink Ladies?
“Now it’s your turn with the pussy.”
Apt or not, Savage Streets is sweet camp, a variant rape-revenge flick starring Linda Blair, who doles out revenge nattily clad and with a crossbow. Superlatively silly and fun.
An excellent gratuitous shower scene turns into a shower scene catfight that may be the best of its kind (what to compare it to? are there others?)
The movie also features lots of spirited dialogue, juicy and over the top.
“I have to go to the bathroom so bad I’ll have to wring out my socks”
Though the ending devolves into a protracted drama, Savage Streets delivers the goods.
And, yes, John Vernon kicks ass as the principal.
