THE WILDEST GIRL GANG THAT EVER BLASTED THE STREETS!

From Jack Hill, legendary director of Spider Baby, Coffy, Foxy Brown, and The Swinging Cheerleaders comes another iconic cult classic, Switchblade Sisters!

Lace (Robbie Lee), the leader of inner city girl gang The Dagger Debs, meets her match when new girl Maggie (Joanne Nail) moves into the neighborhood. 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 (Chase Newhart). 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 (Marlene Clark) and her gang of African-American militants from across town to declare all out war. But there's a traitor in their midst...

Filled with sharp, clever dialogue and tongue in cheek humor, this Shakespeare-influenced girl gang/women in prison/action movie medley is a stone cold grindhouse classic!

Press Quotes

As sharply incisive as it is entertaining, Jack Hill's Switchblade Sisters is the rare grindhouse joint that fully lives up to its reputation. The film's exploitation-style thrills give way to something more profoundly revolutionary.

     —Slant Magazine

A classic slice of exploitation goodness that's actually got a little more going for it than usual. The presentation is certainly an improvement over its US DVD counterpart.

     —The Digital Bits

This gonzo outing should be appreciated by cult collectors. It offers solid technical merits and its own slate of enjoyable supplements for those who are considering a purchase.
