Spoiled girls turn to a life of crime, a deformed killer stalks a city, a woman and her two young charges wake up in an ape run future, and … well, Mighty Jack happens. I can’t even begin to explain this film. Damn you, Sandy Frank!

collection, an oddball collection of two Sandy Frank
“treats” (poorly dubbed and edited Japanese shows turned into films for the American market), a strange exploitation film, and a lost Ed Wood
“classic”, that’s possibly the funniest film in the set.
Let’s start there. “The Violent Years” is a truly laughable attempt at a “morality tale”, involving a spoiled rich girl (note - all the teen girls in this film appear to be 30) given lots of money but not enough attention by her busy parents, so she turns to robbing gas stations, raping men, and messing up classrooms in the name of Communism. I shit you not - that’s the deeply laughable plot of this flaming turd of a movie. There’s even a lecture to “return to god” at the end, which just makes me snicker uncontrollably. Yes, bad actor playing an even worse judge, please tell us how to stop rich girls from going on violent crime sprees. It’s inept from page one,
