Gary Swanson once said of his role in this movie: "The world out there is vicious and cruel, and the film pulls no punches in bringing it all to life down to the finest detail . . . and I hope its gritty impact brings a new awareness to moviegoers." See more »
The scene where the two plain-clothes police officers are taking Ramrod to the precinct for the booking of Ginger's murder. Ramrod (Wings Hauser) manages to overpower them and causes police officer Pete Mendez (Pepe Serna) driving to crash. We see the car crash from a side vantage point, then we see it crash from a head-on position. It is the same crash filmed from two different angles using two cameras. In a little economizing, the filmmakers get two separate shots of the same crash so as not to have to set up twice for a matching crash shot. See more »

The UK cinema version was heavily cut by over 6 minutes by the BBFC to edit scenes of violence and torture including Ramrod's torture of Ginger with the pimp stick (twisted wire coat-hangers) and shots of Princess being assaulted and beaten. The 1987 Embassy video release was the pre-edited U.S TV version which ran around 4 minutes shorter, removed most of the violent scenes, and was dubbed to delete nearly all the profanity. See more »
I didn't see this movie until 1984 when it was an added feature to "Angel" at the Parkway Drive-In here in Toronto. After reading all of the comments of this movie, it's nice to see that other people appreciate fine 'B' movies as myself. I have this movie on VHS, but like the other reviewers have stated, it would be nice to see this movie released on DVD someday. It has a riveting storyline, and great performances by all the actors involved. It even features ex-MTV VJ Nina Blackwood as a desperate hooker trying to get away from the clutches of a psycho pimp named Ramrod, played by Wings Hauser. This movie has a gritty atmosphere to it which makes the story believable. Season Hubley plays Princess, a streetwise hooker with call girl attributes. She works with the police to try and rid the streets of Ramrod. This movie has been largely forgotten by most people, but for me it will always be a prized addition to my video library!
