A Scream In The Streets [Blu-ray]
(Joshua Bryant, Frank Bannon, Rosie Stone, et al / Blu-ray / NR / (1972) 2021 / Severin - MVD Visual)
Overview: Two Los Angeles detectives are assigned to track down and arrest a brutal rapist-murderer terrorizing the city.
Their job is complicated by the fact that the killer is able to avoid capture because he can pose as a woman.
Blu-ray Verdict: Jaded veteran detective Ed Haskell (a solid performance by Joshua Bryant) and his eager new partner Bob Streeker (likeable Frank Bannon) go after a crazed transvestite psycho rapist (a hilariously unconvincing portrayal by Con Covert) who has been terrorizing LA.
The pair also deal with other assorted criminal riffraff along the way, of course, but Director Carl Monson relates the enjoyably sordid story at a constant pace, maintains an appropriately in-your-face raw n scuzzy tone throughout, and delivers more than enough tasty bare female skin and scorching semi-hardcore sex to satisfy grindhouse cinema fans!
Moreover, we also get lots of hysterically profane dialogue along with a pretty good and exciting car chase. Vibrant redhead vixen Sharon Kelly lends delightful support as sassy police dispatcher Jenny while soft-core regulars Sandy Carey, Sandy Dempsey, and Angela Carnon supply extra sizzle!
The funky-throbbing score hits the get-down groovy spot which all adds up to A Scream In The Streets being one totally trashy blast of 70s retro cinema! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
