“What do you get when you throw an ’80s revenge thriller, a giallo, The Warriors and USA’s Up All Night with a dash of social commentary into a blender? You get Streets of Vengeance.” — PopHorror.com
Streets of Vengeance follows Mila Lynn, the adult film industry’s hottest young star, as she enters retirement. Before she can start her new life, she is brutally attacked by a murderous cult known as The Sword. After barely escaping with her life, Mila puts a group of badass girls together and hits the streets to get revenge!
Taking inspiration from films like Savage Streets, Avenging Angel, New York Ripper and even adult films from the 1980s such as New Wave Hookers, Streets of Vengeance blends ’80s slasher aesthetics with social commentary. Billed as a feminist female revenge movie, Streets of Vengeancetackles issues of misogyny, violence against women, and rape culture with a satiric attitude.
"Although the film deals with a serious subject matter, we really wanted the audience to have fun watching the movie. It’s over the top, it’s exciting, but it’s also grounded in reality. Underneath the neon lights, hot babes and bloody gore, there is a real message of female empowerment,” noted co-writer/co-director Angelica De Alba on the feminist aspects of the movie.
Featuring cameos by adult film performers such as Alexis Amore, Sophie Dee and alternative adult film entrepreneur, Joanna Angel. The film also contains a special guest appearance by the legendary Ginger Lynn Allen, in her best acting performances in years.
Made for only $3,500, Streets of Vengeance is a true triumph of DIY, low budget filmmaking. Armed with an incredible synth soundtrack composed by Vestron Vulture, and captured thru a neon-soaked lens by award winning cinematographer Dan Zampa, filmmakers Paul Ragsdale and Angelica De Alba have crafted a film that far exceeds its meager budget.
This huge release will be packed with special features including a feature length “Making of” documentary with interviews from the cast and crew and never before seen footage.
Streets of Vengeance hits the streets this summer on July 24 2018, from Slasher Video and Olive Films!
