3.0 out of 5 stars Alternately campy & powerful: these punks really are savages, December 26, 2004
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-
