Savage Streets (1984) – Blu-ray

Linda Blair (The Exorcist, Roller Boogie) is Brenda, vivacious leader of the “Satins”, a fun-loving group of pretty high school girls. The Satins are in for trouble from the first moment they play a harmless prank on the “Scars” — a vicious gang who runs loose on the Hollywood streets. The Scars and their malevolent leader, Jake (Robert Dryer, The Sisterhood), take their revenge seriously — first with Brenda’s deaf-mute sister (Linnea Quigley, Return of the Living Dead), and then her soon-to-be-married best friend. Caught up in her rivalry with the cheerleaders, Brenda is at first unaware of the Scars’ involvement, but she soon finds out the full truth. Shocked… full of hate… in a skintight black suit… Brenda searches for the gang members and she takes them out one by one with deadly vengeance.

Grizzly II: Revenge (1983) – Blu-ray

In Yellowstone National Park, grizzlies and other wildlife roam free while the park is preparing for a major rock concert to be held in 3 days. Poachers are hunting for grizzlies and one of the poachers end up killing a cub and wounding its mother. The grizzly takes revenge killing hikers, a deputy ranger and the poacher who killed her cub. The killing spree continues. The park superintendent, Eileene Draygon, refused to help and continues with the concert. Nick Hollister, chief of rangers, and Samantha Owens, Director of Bear Management, is desperately looking for help and finds Bouchard, the bear specialist in Canada, to help locate the gigantic bear. The concert goes on when the grizzly attacks the backstage area. Samantha, Bouchard, Nick and all his men are fighting the bear and eventually ends up lodged into the giant Phoenix bird which is part of the stage decoration and gets killed. Everyone cheers and applauds. Draygon acts as if the killing of the bear was part of the show.
