Violent Years / Girl Gang

Overview

Billed as a "teenage terror drive-in double feature," this disc from Something Weird Video will not disappoint fans of "wild youth" films. The Violent Years has the distinct honor of having been scripted by none other than the infamous Ed Wood Jr. (Plan Nine From Outer Space, Glen or Glenda). Both films are presented full frame (aspect ratio of 1.33:1) with prints that are a bit dark but lack major flaws. The soundtracks are Dolby Digital Mono. The disc is loaded with thematic extras.

Overview

Billed as a "teenage terror drive-in double feature," this disc from Something Weird Video will not disappoint fans of "wild youth" films. The Violent Years has the distinct honor of having been scripted by none other than the infamous Ed Wood Jr. (Plan Nine From Outer Space, Glen or Glenda). Both films are presented full frame (aspect ratio of 1.33:1) with prints that are a bit dark but lack major flaws. The soundtracks are Dolby Digital Mono. The disc is loaded with thematic extras. The trailers section features clips for The Violent Years, The Choppers, Jacktown, Slightly Damaged, and Strange Compulsion. There is also a hidden feature on this menu page: a 35-second alternate take from The Violent Years. The "Delinquent Goodies" section includes two short films. The short Goof Balls and Tea is a classic scare film credited as "A Police Science Production" and has a running time of 34 minutes. The other short has a similar somber tone and is entitled What About Juvenile Delinquency?, running 11 minutes. Both prints are in rough shape but still worth watching. Also included in this section is a 13-minute "Gallery of Drive-In Exploitation Art with Drive-In Intermission Announcements " and "Behind the Scenes Stills and Art" from The Violent Years, which features radio spots for Slightly Damaged and runs approximately ten minutes. There are also three separate "Intermission" films (snack bars clips, local business ads, etc.), each running around ten minutes, and a hidden trailer" for Teenage Mother. The final great feature for this wonderful disc is the optional "Let's Go to the Drive-In" which allows for uninterrupted playback of all of the disc's features.
