Teenage Strangler
A serial killer has been targeting teenage girls in a small town, strangling his victims with pantyhose and drawing an "X" in lipstick on their foreheads. Lieutenant Anderson (Bill Bloom) is frustrated by the crimes, and thinks that modern parents have become too lax with their curfews. Local hot-rod gang the Fast Backs find themselves prime suspects, since an eyewitness says she might have seen their insignia, a bulldog, on the killer's back. Their only alibi is an illegal drag strip race (they're the number one group in the state), except for Jimmy (John Ensign), who is carrying on a forbidden romance with Betty (Jo Canterbury), and can't answer for his whereabouts. Tensions with fellow gang member Curly cause Jimmy to throw his Fast Backs jacket away, and a wild fistfight leads to a challenge to drag. When another body is found, the clues suddenly point to Curly, but a high speed chase and a terrible accident only complicate matters further. So who is the killer? Is it the creepy janitor? Is it the dweebish kid brother? There's lots of gutbucket rockabilly guitar and screaming sax on the jukebox in this juvenile delinquent thriller. ~ Fred Beldin, Rovi

Teenage Gang Debs
Brimming with gritty New York street violence and more than enough exploitative elements to please even the pickiest of genre aficionados, this lurid tale centers on the exploits of Terry, a former member of the Golden Falcons, a girl gang from Manhattan. Ambitious, ruthless and manipulative, Terry falls for Johnny. Not wanting a mere follower, she seduces him into killing the current leader of the Brooklyn Rebels and taking over. To cover his dirty deed, she makes it look as if the Rebels' rivals, the WW II helmet-wearing Aliens from Queens, were responsible. The malicious Terry's machinations lead to an all-out gang war that decimates the ranks of the Rebels. The girl friends of the downed gang members are quite upset. When they learn that Terry is ultimately responsible for the destruction, they band together to get a gruesome form of revenge. Highlights include a vicious catfight, an exciting rumble sequence and a gang rape. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
