"There's A Lot O' Garbage People Out There!"...
28 August 2019 | by azathothpwigginsSee all my reviews

In ALLEY CAT, Billie (Karin Mani) catches a pair of creeps in the act of stealing the tires off of her car. Karate and gunfire ensue, putting the bad guys to flight. Unfortunately, these street thugs are working for an even bigger loser known as William "Scarface" Krug (Michael Wayne). Scarface, in addition to being an idiot, is also a sadistic, murdering psychopath. Soon, Scarface and his fellow savants hunt down and attack Billie's grandparents! These feeble fossils are no match for Scarface and his crew. With no legal justice forthcoming, Billie must -eventually- take action herself, bringing down the hurt on the street trash. Fairly slow-building for a revenge film, AC even takes a detour into "Women In Prison" territory at one point, complete w/ shower scene! Then, there's Billie's clunky romance w/ a cop. By the time the true vengeance rolls around, it's almost a side issue. This movie's one saving grace is Mani herself. Her character is the only one that comes across as more than a block of wood w/ a face painted on it. She's also beautiful, and spends a great deal of her time missing her clothes. THE MAIN MESSAGES OF THIS FILM: #1- Night jogging attracts scumbags like flies, so, just don't do it, unless you're a karate expert! #2- Saloons are great places to meet people and destroy property! #3- Cops are either wide-eyed rookies or jaded old turds. There is no in between! #4- Guys nicknamed "Scarface" are usually not very nice! #5- Karate solves almost every problem, and those it doesn't solve aren't worth making a movie about!...
