Just watched this very good flick directed by Joan Freeman.
She did only two movies, the other one is Satisfaction (1988) which, sadly, i don´t own.

Streetwalkin' is a movie about prostitutes and pimps.
It´s a hard life when you belong to another
and the pimps are only competing who owns the best girls in town.
Very grim and realistic tale from the dark side.

Starring Melissa Leo, Dale Midkiff, Randall Batinkoff, Leon, Antonio Fargas and Khandi Alexander.
The cast did a good job, especially Midkiff who was real psycho as Duke.

Lots of street scenes, bars and clubs, action and skin, good score and a very nice theme tune.
Check it out if you wanna take a trip to the sleazier side of the town.

Here are the good news:
Shout Factory! is going to release Streetwalkin´ on dvd
as part of the Roger Corman´s Cult Classics series next August.

Atomik I totally feel like i've seen this.....I always had a crush on Dale Midkiff! haha and problem was he played psychos well [Smile]

This totally reminds me I want to buy Whore....I remember it being a USA Up all Night flick and it was about a prostitute but narrated and funny? but I might not hold up to what I thought of it as controversial? as a early teen [Smile]

I have it but still haven´t watched it.

Midkiff yeah, what a crazy character.
This was his first role and he was hit, kicked and shot but kept going on like the Terminator [Smile] [Smile]

i remember catching the first half of this on youtube years back and really liking it but had to pop out about half way through for some reason and when i remembered to get back to finishing it off it had been taken down off the site.

tempted to pick this one up on dvd,also the angel triple pack as i liked the original angel,can't remember much from avenging angel or the 3rd part.

Wow, thought I was the only one to remember this one. I am sure future stars like Melissa Leo and Greg Jermaine must want to erase this movie from their resume. As for me, I have always loved the gritty, seedy 80's street movie. Tuff turf, alphabet city, Tenement, Street, Out of Bounds, Vice Squad. Kind of low budget, but a good time capsule. Have to re-up this one on dvd.
