Editorial Reviews

After nearly being rundown by a gang known as the Scars, Brenda (Linda Blair) and friends trash the leader's car. Gang leader, Jake, exacts his revenge by getting his cohorts to gang-rape her mute-deaf sister, Heather (in a gloriously nuanced role by Linnea Quigley). Armed with a crossbow and a bad attitude, Linda Blair sets out to avenge her mute-deaf sister while blazing a bloody, Bronson-inspired trail through 80's Los Angeles.

Customer Reviews

Savage Streets is a good, exciting film from the 80's.
Scott K
It's really great to see the pairing of Vintage Johnny and Linda Blair in this masterful re-release.
Scott J. Frisch
SAVAGE STREETS is a movie that is so bad in every possible way that it ends up being good!

The 1980's provided B- Movie fans with a variety of good vengeance films and the 1984 "Savage Streets" is no exception. The one thing that really surprised me was that Linda Blair pulled off the role of the hero really well and overall I really enjoyed seeing this movie again. The movie contains plenty of nudity like the school shower scene and also includes the tub scene with Linda Blair completely?

The first time I saw this movie was on television and one unforgettable scene now included had been previously banned because of the R rating. After seeing the movie again, I think this previously excluded scene wasn't really needed even though it did provide the catalyst for Brenda's character and further development of the film. The subject matter, level of violence and the manner in which it is carried out will not be suitable for everyone. This film is rated R for a reason due to its graphic language, frontal nudity and graphic rape scene.

Brenda played by (Linda Blair) is an excitable young woman with a knack for finding trouble at every turn. Repeated run-ins with her Principal (John Vernon) and fellow students are just the norm for this troubled teenager. One night after an encounter on the street with local punks the "Scars" Brenda and her friends decide to play a little joke to teach them a lesson. It's not long after their little prank backfires that the "Scars" set out to even the score with extreme violence and brutality. After Brenda's sister played by former scream queen (Linnea Quigley) is savagely and brutally attacked, Brenda sets out to find each of the people responsible and settle the score on her own terms.

As the title say it's an unauthorized release and probably stolen from the BCI release. Code Red the legal owner of the american movie rights for this film works currently to add new extras on their version. So don't support bootleggers as the result will be the non-release of those new extras.

I can't understand why Amazon accept to sell illegal product...

Note : We can't give zero star so take the one for a zero

I found this to be a good movie. As far as acting goes, I think this is one of Linnea Quigley's best outtings as she did a fantastic job in this. I had originally seen this on VHS years ago. The character developement was really good and had some really sleazy gang members, that you had no problem hating. This film is not for every body as it has some rather intense scenes, of rape, and even tossing a girl of a bridge. The revenge that Linda Blair gets is sweet to say the least. If you can handle the intensity of the film,then it is a good watch. Charlie S.

Definitely of major significance in Linda Blair's post-Exorcist career, this sleazy tale of high school revenge is a must for bad film fans everywhere.

This sympathetic tale tells the story of Brenda (Blair), a tough high school gal who spends her nights drinking peach brandy on the streets of LA with her equally tough friends. One night, they make the mistake of puttering with a gang called the Scars ("careful Brenda, these dudes look dangerous"), and before you know it, the Scars have raped and beaten Brenda's deaf, mute sister. Once Brenda learns the truth of what transpired, she vows revenge on those responsible.

This is the preeminent 80's high school movie - terrible music, awful acting, questionable violence and gratuitous nudity.

Granted, you can't find a new copy of this DVD set for less than $50, but it is well worth it. A rare surprise is the early appearance of Johnny Venocur, who played the character of "Vince". Johnny, now known as Johnny Venokur (or simply "Johnny V") has seen his late-blooming career soar as "Moondoggie" in American Vampire (1997), and most recently as the co-star of the hit VH1 multi-year TV series "Scott Baio is 45{46} and Single{Pregnant}". It's really great to see the pairing of Vintage Johnny and Linda Blair in this masterful re-release. Go for it!
