A Scream in the Streets

A Scream in the Streets

Director: Carl Monson Cast: Frank Bannon, John Kirkpatrick, Linda York

DVD (Dolby 5.1 / Mono)


Ugly seems to sum up every aspect of this crime drama exploitation film, from its hateful, misogynistic, cross-dressing rapist-killer to its eye-straining costumes and depressing San Fernando Valley locations. Sexploitation fans who like their fare on the rougher side might appreciate the occasional bursts of police action, and sleaze aficionados will be pleased by the relatively graphic sex couplings, as well as the presence of veteran actresses Sharon Kelly (aka hardcore actress Colleen Brennan) and Sandy Dempsey. Curious first-timers, however, will undoubtedly find the film a bit too extreme in its depiction of the psychosexual grime boiling just below the surface of suburbia. Image Entertainment's full-frame DVD includes 12 sex-and-crime-related trailers, as well as a wealth of paranoid short subjects, including "Crime in the Streets," a '70s-era self-defense film narrated by Marvin Miller and featuring a pre-stardom Chuck Norris. "The Prowler" is a stiff police training film from the '50s, while "Harry Novak, Crime Stopper" is a videotaped visit to producer Novak's Box Office International offices in Hollywood with Something Weird Video chief Mike Vraney, during which Novak displays his considerable gun collection and shakes down an L.A. area video store owner for an overdue payment.
