Easy-going Mari Collingwood and her fun-loving friend Phyllis are on their way to a Bloodlust concert to celebrate Mari's 17th birthday when three escaped convicts kidnap and torture them. But Mari and Phyllis are fighters, and although they are drugged and beaten into unconsciousness, stuffed into a car trunk and driven to the woods for even more brutality, they are still alive... but for how long?
A crude exploitation film, crudely made

This was one of the so-called 'video nasties' and was refused a certificate in the UK until 2002, some 30 years after its release. So, is it really that bad?
It's bad all right - badly, cheaply made rubbish. While it might be claimed that it has historic value as a film that pushed the boundaries of on-screen violence, all that can honestly be said about it is that it is an early unwholesome exploitation film.
The story is crude: two girls head off for a rock concert in New York. While trying to score some grass, they make the mistake of approaching the baddies. Baddies rape them, drive them to the woods, rape them again, kill and dismember them. Having cleaned themselves up, the baddies then show up at a nearby house - which coincidentally happens to be the home of one of the girls. Parents wreak revenge. Add in a couple of unfunny 'comedy' cops and that's it.
It's a crude exploitation film, crudely made, with few if any redeeming features. 1/5 stars.
