Directed by Jack Hill
Lace, the leader of inner city girl gang The Dagger Debs, meets her match when new girl Maggie moves into the neighbourhood. Mistrust and conflict turn to friendship as the girls end up in Juvenile Detention together at the mercy of abusive guards. Meanwhile, The Dagger Debs’ male counterparts The Silver Daggers have to contend with the arrival of a new gang, led by the villainous Crabs. But when the girls get back on the streets, a planned retaliation strike in tandem with The Silver Daggers backfires and puts Lace in hospital. Maggie assumes control, teaming up with Muff and her gang of African-American militants from across town to declare all out war. But there’s a traitor in their midst.

A Wierd Class Conscoius Exploitation Flick that ends up having lots of fun as well as being intelligent.
An entertaining exploitation pic about a teenage girl gang (although the actors look like they're 27) in L.A. I really like how Robbie Lee talks with her teeth clenched throughout the entire film because, you know, she's trying to exude menace. Lots of chains and knives but not very much blood. It's all mindless, but the characters and the drama of envy played to the death makes the 91 minutes enjoyable.
That's how you keep it gangsta!
CLASSIC. LOVE EXPLOITATIVE ANYTHING. GIMME GIMME GIMME!!!
