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.

Wow, I gotta say, I watched this based solely on my fellow Shudder subscribers reviews and I'm really glad I did. If you're wondering if you want to give this movie a shot ask yourself if you liked "The Warriors." If you answered "Yes" then give this a watch.
Such a hidden gem!!
Sometimes us mutants need to take a refreshing bath in the gutter - and Switchblade Sisters fills that need nicely. It's dirty, it's trashy, the characters are fun - and the end rant by Queen Jezebel is a definite classic. Highly recommended!
I was looking for this movie from years, thank you Shudder!
purple credits and song well worth the watch.
