AWESOME!
13 April 2001 | by (Arlington, Texas) – See all my reviews

I recall when I first saw this movie. I was in college (1993) and AMC showed it one late night. I was so very taken by this movie. Of course, by today's standards it would be boring, but it was CLASSIC. Shear and utter nostalgia! The acting was interesting, but the plot was explosive. The relationship between Joyce and Mike was magical. The Hellcats were the first pink ladies! They were bad to the bone and yet they were still pretty wholesome. By 1958 standards, I am sure that the movie ruffled a few feathers. I searched for years trying to find the movie. I never knew the name. I even searched IMDB.COM and could not find the name of this movie. Finally, about a year ago - AMC showed it again. I LOVE HIGH SCHOOL HELLCATS. It takes you back to a period when simple acts of indecency (and murder) were shocking. Today those things are a "way of life" in society. HIGH SCHOOL HELLCATS reminded me of a more simple time, a time that I wish still existed.
