Goofs

Cindy is wearing straplike sandals that secure around the ankle during the fight scene between her and Brenda in Mr. Meeker's science class. When the fight breaks out, both girls are on the ground for no more than 30 seconds, and when Cindy gets up without her top and runs to the door, she is seen without shoes, and that particular style could not likely have fallen off or be easily removed during the fight.

Quotes

Cindy: Well, well. It looks like the little slut's at it again.
Wes: Cut it out, Cindy, we're only talking.
Cindy: I know it's not your fault, Wes.
Brenda: Fuck off, bitch.

Revenge of the 80's: Linda Blair Superstar
15 October 2003 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Savage Streets (1984) is one of my favorite trashy flicks. Linda Blair is out for revenge! Dressed in black and armed with a crossbow (that has one heck of a pull) walking the streets, stalking the street scum that have wronged her family and friends. See her marinate in the tub, calculating her every move. This movie's classic Linda Blair. If you love bad movies, this ones for you. It has everything a b-movie fan loves. Bad dialog, hammy acting, pedestrian direction and sleaze (the good kind, not the one that gives you bad flashbacks or nightmares). A couple of the genre's mainstays also have supporting roles, Linnea Quigley and John Vernon make co-star appearances (what no Michelle Bauer?). This movie has bad girls, bad clothes and bad attitude. I highly recommend this movie.

For trash lovers only.
