Linda Blair toplines as Brenda, an LA girl who turns vigilante when her mute younger sister Heather (Linnea Quigley) is brutally gang-raped by a local gang of toughs.

Pic unfolds as a tough update of the juvenile delinquency B-pictures of the 1950s, incorporating ineffectual adult authorities (John Vernon as the hardnosed but powerless high school principal), warring groups of dislikeable good kids and gangs of punks.

The uncensored approach pays off in deliciously vulgar dialog and well-directed confrontation scenes.

Blair emerges here as a tawdry, delightfully trashy sweater girl in a league with 1950s B-heroines such as Beverly Michaels, Juli Reding and Mamie Van Doren.
