Trivia

John Humphries had never acted before doing this film. He has since said that he took his acting cues from Jo Canterbury whom he knew had some acting experience Off-Broadway. So as her performance became more teary and shrill, so did his. 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.
