When Lieutenant Anderson calls headquarters the voice of the dispatch officer is obviously coming from off screen right and not from the radio in the car. Anderson also fails to click only holds the receiver and fails to operate its buttons. See more »

Fun Local Trash!
8 November 1999 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Like many others, I saw this on MST3K (albeit a long time ago). It was hilarious, and I'm sure it's pretty funny on it's own, too. The plot has something to do with a teenage strangler, a new kid with a bad rep, his bike-stealing mongoloid younger brother, and a malt shop sock hop. What I remember most is the movie being so colourful that it was just pretty to look at despite what happened on screen, and of course the memorable acting of young Mikey, who was related to the director in some way to earn his role. Features the "hit" single "Yipe Stripes" and a cheat ending.
