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.

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!

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.

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 ›

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-

When I first bought this video many years ago, I watched it repeatedly. I have always been a Linda Blair fan, especially since I spent many years being told how much I look like her, and even getting an autograph request once.

Of all the movies I've seen in Blairs filmography, this is among the top. It is also a teen genre original in the sense that we're dealing with a girl gang going up against the guys. These come in the form of three miscreants that terrorize the town. Linda and her gang laugh at them, like they're jokes. After her gang steals their car for a joyride and trashes it, the three guys plot revenge in the form of a sadistic raping of Linda's pretty, but deaf mute sister. This scene is particularly and unnecessarily brutal because of the handicap of the victim, and the only part of the film I didn't like. The three also convince Vince, a weak and stupid sidekick of theirs, to participate as well. When our heroine finds out what has happened, she sets out in true Bronson-like fashion, for revenge. Her weapon of choice? Hey, YOU have to watch and find out! It's truly original.

This movie has a great eighties retro feel as well. The big hair, headbands, fashions. It's just how I dressed when Linda Blair herself came to the radio station where I was an on-air personality, to promote this film. She kept looking at me, as one of my fellow jocks was interviewing her. I guess she saw the resemblance herself! I regret not talking to her, for a disc-jockey, I found myself tongue-tied for the first time!

"Savage Streets" is a fascinating tough chicks whoop the bad guys film that'll keep you riveted. Even ladies prison movie vet Carol Ita White (Chained Heat, The Naked Cage) is reunited briefly here with Blair as a gym teacher.
