OMG! [Smile]

Now we have to create Muffy 2.0 with some serious Linda Blair update.
I have 16 Blair flicks (and going to get 3 more soon) and she always delivers.

Ok, let´s start with Savage Streets.
Getting this movie is your top priority from now on [Cool]

Although "Savage Streets" is not my favorite, it is a quintessential 80's exploitation film. It pretty much covers all the bases: revenge plot, sleaze, Linda Blair with a crossbow... [Smile] It's pretty hard to argue with that!

Muffy...if memory serves Savage Island is a rip off, paste up movie that only has Linda in a few scenes tacked on from some other movie.

Here's more from the IMDB...my memory did serve me! LOL

"This "new movie" was cobbled together from scenes of both Orinoco: Prigioniere del sesso (1980) and Femmine infernali (1980) with 10 minutes of new additional footage featuring Linda Blair. The result was an incoherent movie featuring some of the same actors who appeared in both earlier movies disappearing and reappearing as different characters at different points in the story.

Linda Blair did not want her fans to be deceived by what amounted to a cameo part by the actress in this film. She told the Los Angeles Times she had it stipulated in her contract that her name could not be above the movie title, nor in bigger print than anybody else's. The distributors however did feature Linda prominently in the ads and posters: dressed like Sheena (in high heels) and aiming a bazooka, Linda was clearly their drawing card for audiences."

One of the best exploitation movies I know. It's very trashy, but sooo fun... I just love the entire athmosphere it has. Linda Blair rocks!

If anyone knows other good '80s movies that have a somewhat similar feel, please let me know!!!

Exclusive to the BCI / Eclipse dvd-release from 2008 is a fold-out leaflet with several different
artwork stills (including one under the title 5 Deadly Angels), as well as the front- and backcover
of the original soundtrack vinyl album.

Now, that sounds like a nice extra, Johnny!
