Pretty dull Juvenile Delinquency schlock
19 April 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

I'm a big fan of the 50s vintage Juvenile Deliquency films. They're hopelessly dated and naive, but often great fun. Just like rockabilly, they become more entertaining and fascinating as time goes on just because of how alien they appear. "High School Confidential", "High School Caesar", and even "Teenagers From Outer Space" are schlock I'll probably never become tired of. However, "Lost, Lonely, and Vicious" just bored me.

I have several problems with the film. First off, Ken Clayton. It's rather ironic he's playing a character acclaimed as a great actor, because the man himself has all the charisma of a can of paint. His character is unsubtly modeled on James Dean, but never exudes the presence that made Dean a legend. Still, this is an exploitation film, so maybe I'm being a bit too hard on it. I know these films aren't great art, but this is rather dull. This is a shame, because on a technical side the direction, cinematography, and overall atmosphere are done with more skill than usual. Its just all so dull and talky. The film would've been better also if it wasn't for the disappointing ending. It comes at the worst moment, right when it seems the film is improving. For die-hard followers of 50s camp only. (4/10)
