Editorial Reviews

They raped her sister... killed her best friend. Now she must seek revenge!

Linda Blair is Brenda, vivacious leader of the Satins, a fun-loving group of pretty high school girls. The Satins are in for trouble from the first moment theyplay a harmless trick on the Scars -- a vicious gang who runs loose on the Hollywood streets. The Scars and their malevolent leader, Jake, take their revenge seriously -- first with Brenda's deaf-mute sister (Linnea Quigley, Return Of The Living Dead), and then her soon-to-be-married best friend.

It's tough to get a fix on this movie: it's a boisterous, R-rated camp-fest one minute(featuring a group of kids, including Linda Blair, who look far too old to still be in high school)and an unabashedly brutal trash-flick the next. It has more spirit and drive than Linda's "Chained Heat", and the kids' inter-relationships and tough talks with the school principal are cynically amusing, but the much-discussed rape scene is extremely nasty, as is the sequence with the girl on the bridge. Suddenly these hot-shot punks become murderous, psychotic thugs--yet the tone of the picture never changes. The images are very disturbing, the violence bordering on realistic, but the director keeps it all hopping mad--like a nihilistic cartoon. B-

5.0 out of 5 stars Vestron Video vs. New Star Video release February 24, 2004
Verified Purchase
I was a little hesitant in ordering this DVD when I read some of the previous reviews for this '80s trash-flick. Points mentioned like the frame stability of the movie, blurry transfer etc. Having the original Vestron VHS from 1985, I figured I would take the plunge & buy the DVD to make a comparison & make your decision to buy this '80s drive-in movie easier. First off, New Star has retained the original box art of "Savage Streets" that was used for the Vestron VHS version. The only difference is that the artwork has been compressed so that Linda Blair doesn't look as wide as on the VHS box art. The "Savage Streets" logo has changed to a white block letter font compared to the pink lettering used in the original artwork. The same synopsis has been used on the back of the DVD as the Vestron version. For the picture quality, it's about the same. This movie has always had a misty-veiled look to it. It's in focus & the fleshtones on the DVD are a little more natural than the Vestron VHS version. With the Vestron VHS, the flesh tones looked a little washed out & pastey. One thing that stands out is the frame instability of this movie. It's more apparent on the New Star DVD than on the Vestron VHS version. The beginning credits move up & down in both versions & some scenes throughout this film, but the DVD really shows up this filming flaw more. I never noticed a problem with the sound on the VHS version, but the DVD version is very clear, even on a circa 1982 mono Electrohome console TV. Finally, in the DVD version, there are a couple of scenes that show a clear horizontal noise line which looks like it has originated from the master tape. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Linda Blair rules! October 17, 2012
Format:DVD
She did then and she still does!Gotta admit this one slipped under my radar in the 80's but after hearing about it and then reading the excellent reviews that were written by the two people before me, I knew I had to own this movie!The picture is beautiful, the extras fantastic, all previously mentioned , you have got to see this movie! Rarely do I like a movie THIS much on the first time around, normally I may like it, then it becomes comfortable and I will grow to love it.The acting is really good, and Linda really plays her performance brilliantly, if I'm not mistaken Linda did all the action scenes herself!Really loved the way she hammed it up a bit as she was getting her revenge, love that smirk!.Will warn those who don't know, this isn't one of those 1980's "R" ratings that is the equivalent of what a "PG-13" would be today, this earned it's "R" rating so you might wanna watch this after the kids go to sleep.So if you are on the fence about this movie don't be ,just get it! Scorpion Releasing comes through again with another great title!

5.0 out of 5 stars the ultimate chic action flick February 20, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
this video is a wonderful action flick for girls. it has the ultimate tough chic in it-linda blair, who has a heart as big as her attitude when it comes to her deafmute sister and friends. the only thing about the movie i did not like was the prolonged rape scene. how often is an action movie made where the hero is a chic who isn't just boobs that a girl could actually enjoy watching w/o getting sick? i would recommend this one to all my friends. i was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Savage Streets (2012 Remastered Edition) September 20, 2012
Format:DVD
Wanted to post this review mainly to list the special features. I have this new Region 1 release as well as the older Region 2 Another World Entertainment (AWE) release. All the interviews from previous releases are included here with an additional 5 interviews exclusive to this one. Picture quality is a VAST improvement over my AWE release. The colors and skin tones are much better and much more details can be seen. So if you missed out on the BCI release or have one of the older import releases, it's very much worth the upgrade/double dip.

4.0 out of 5 stars sexy and awesome!
If you own Red Heat and Chained Heat then this also a must own Linda Blair film. This is a more exploitative version of Death Wish. Violent, sexy and awesome!
