Under the assumption you are an individual that loves 1980s/1970s exploitation films then you are in luck. Are films like "Savage Streets", "Ms. 45", "Death Wish" (series) and "I Spit on Your Grave" your idea of guilty pleasure entertainment, if so I am pretty certain you will love "Alley Cat". This movie not only is an exploitation revenge film, but it also falls under the umbrella "so bad it is funny" realm of movie watching.
The plot is extremely simple; Billie's grandparents are attacked by a ruthless gang. Then when justice goes astray Billie needs to take the law in her own hands. It should be noted that Billie is obviously a master in the art of karate so this gang (who is led by an Adam Levine stunt double) better watch out. There is plenty of cheesy action, gratuitous female nudity, laughable acting and even provides a bit of "women in prison" aspects. I would also bet a great deal of money that Karin Mani's (Billie) stunt double is an Asian man. Oh and don't forget to keep your eyes open for the scene where Billie is dressed just like Rainbow Bright. Has to be seen to be believed!
I have really enjoyed the DVD treatment that Scorpion Releasing has been producing. In addition, I love the introductions and closures that Katarina (Leigh Waters) provides. She is very knowledgeable about the films and appreciates that they are very tongue -in-cheek yet have a place in cinematic history. As for the picture quality/remastering, I would say it is near perfect, especially considering the age and obscurity of this film. As for the sound, it is pretty good, however there are times I heard some feedback. I am not sure if it was the source material or a transfer issue. It didn't ruin my viewing of this film at all.
This DVD provides a play only or play with Katarina Intro, I prefer the latter. There are some trailers for other Scorpion Releasing movies as well as the trailer for "Alley Cat". The other bonus is Katarina doing an interview with the producer of "Alley Cat". I have yet to watch this feature, but it runs about thirty minutes long. I am very pleased I went ahead and grabbed this flick. It will certainly be viewed again in the future; it is total camp and pretty trashy. I wish to god they still make movies like this.
