Abby McWilliams' (Lori Loughlin, TV's "Full House") nightmare begins when she attracts the unwantedattention of teenage psychopath Eddie Dutra (James Spader, TV's "Boston Practice"). Turned down for a date, Eddie destroys Abby's home, vandalizes her uncle's car and nearly stomps her brother Loren(Shannon Presby) to death. But it's only when he kidnaps Abby from the school dance, that Eddie shows his true feelings. Fueled by cocaine and armed with a shotgun, Eddie's lust turns to uncontrollable rage, as he takes Abby on a date from hell, in this terror-packed thrill-ride from the directorof Friday the 13th and A Stranger is Watching.

Simply put, this movie rules. You've got James Spader. You've got Lori Laughlin. You've got Sean S. Cunningham directing, and he not only produced HOUSE IV: HOME DEADLY HOME, he also produced LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, and directed some movie called FRIDAY THE 13TH.

But the kicker, and the reason I really sought it out, is novelist Harry Crews' involvement. After some research, I've found it difficult to determine exactly how much he had to do with the script. He's not credited, but is thanked in the end credits. Stephen Gyllenhaal and Brian Taggart get screenwriter nods, but in an old Crews interview, he mentions, "I wrote this script called THE NEW KIDS" (but that's all there is of the interview, the snippet posted on his website). So who knows. Actually, I'm sure there's someone fatter and uglier than me out there who knows, and assuming the person surely doesn't have anything better to do, they should contact me with more information.

THE NEW KIDS has nothing to do with Crews novels like "A Feast of Snakes" or "Car" or "The Knockout Artist," all humorously grotesque (sometimes stomach-churning) portraits of bizarro Southern life, which makes his direct involvement even more suspect. But it is a better-than-expected genre picture. Just look at what you get!

1) James Spader in speedo underwear.

2) James Spader doing a really bad, on-again-off-again Southern accent.

3) James Spader snorting cocaine in his van while his gang of cretins run around outside, dousing Lori Laughlin with lighter fluid and taunting her with lit matches in an attempt to get her to submit to a good, Southern-style gang rape.

4) Some dude named Shannon who plays a character named Loren.

well, i remember seeing this horror flick when i was about twelve on tv and thought it was a really cool movie. but, unfortunately, i couldn't find it anywhere till finally amazon delivered the goods to me. as the old saying goes, memory is a selection of images for which we think are accurate, but not quite the truth. this film fits that description. Lori Loughlin and Shannon Presby are two recently orphaned young kids who move down to Florida with their aunt and uncle and look to start over again. but, as always a cliche in horror films, their hopes for a new beginning by the local bullies led by James Spader who just decide to terrorize the kids up until a bloody showdown which is both predictable and a bit cheesy. it might have faired better with a better writer at the helm and not such a quick paced ending. as a loyal moviegoer and film addict, i was quite saddened, the good thing about the film was the good performance by shannon presby and lori loughlin. other than that, this is a b-film all the way.

I can't believe I bought a cheap VHS of this movie only to find out they now have it on DVD. I'm buying it anyway.

I think the acting is fantastic and the thrills will keep you on the edge of your seat. It's also fun to see James Spader, Eric Stoltz and Lori Laughlin in their younger years! I find Shannon Presby hot now that I'm older.

This movie always makes me want to work! I can't imagine why! The song "Stand Up" is awesome (wish I had it on CD). But the transitional music between the scenes is bad - though appropriate for 1985 when the movie was made.

It's a must see!

I saw The New Kids years ago and loved it, when I saw the DVD was released I was so excited but I wondered if It would stand the test of time and if I would still love it.
Well I did and do.
James Spader is at his best as the ring leader for the the school/town bullies.From Sean S. Cunningham of Friday The 13th fame it has to be good.

The entire cast is quite good including a very young Lori Loughlin as the New girl and Shannon Presby as the new boy.they play brother and sister who move to Florida with relatives after their staunch military father and mother die in a plane crash,thank goodness their father taught them how to defend themselves.It's a constant power shift as the New Kids get terrorized by the bullies and the new kids retaliate leading to a big showdown in an amusement park that the new kids happen to live in.
Lot's of thrills and good ole 80's charm.A must for the 80's collector.not a slasher movie but slasher fans will like it.it's more suspenseful but it does have death scenes although not very grisly.

Format: VHS Tape
Two high school parents are killed in a car accident, and the teens are sent to live with their aunt and uncle in Florida. Soon after they start at their new school, the sister, Abby, becomes the target of five redneck bullies, led by James Spader, who pressure her to go out with them, making bets about which of them will sleep with her first. After she refuses their advances, and her brother Loren comes to her defense, they begin to terrorise the teens, scratching up the family car and vandolizing the famly's home built amusement park. Soon there is a feud building between the siblings and the gang, and eventually it builds to a climax. This film has memerable charecters and a decent amount of suspense, and is definetly worth watching.
