A new 4K transfer of Ed Wood’s girl gang explosion!
“I shot a cop — SO WHAT!” So say the girl gang thrill-killers of Ed Wood’s delirious THE VIOLENT YEARS! Written by legendary Hollywood outsider Edward D. Wood, Jr. (PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE), this is the story of Paula Parkins, a good-girl-gone-bad who leads her degenerate teenage hellcats down a path of gas station hijackings, pajama party orgies, and cold-blooded murder! From Wood’s patently deranged dialogue to the scene where the gang performs a “man attack,” THE VIOLENT YEARS is an essential expose on crime, gender politics, and sweater-stealing. Remember, “This is a story of violence!”
