Reform School Girl (1957)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

A good but troubled girl gets into a car with a psycho who runs over a man, killing him. The girl refuses to give the psycho's name so she's sent to reform school where she gets into more trouble but thankfully there's a teacher there who wants to help her. There were countless juvenile films released during the 1950s due to the success of Rebel Without a Cause and this one here was one of the more popular ones but it hasn't aged too well. The film is stupid, pointless and rather boring from start to finish, although the film does contain a few campy moments. The performances are all rather bad but this adds a little charm to the film.
