Subtle….like a 2×4 upside your head!!
Please note: My score of 2 does NOT mean that this film isn’t fun. In fact, THE VIOLENT YEARS is a wonderful film to watch. Just don’t assume this makes it a good film or a picture made by competent film makers! No, its watchability is because it is so bad…so incredibly lacking in any subtlety that make it a must-see for bad movie fans. In other words, if you like laughing at films such as PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, then this film is definitely for you! The film begins with a judge lecturing two parents and basically saying that any time a teen goes bad it is because the parents are to blame! While this is true in some cases, the film pounds home this contention with all the subtlety and grace of a 2×4 being smacked repeatedly against your head!! As the judge is talking, the mother begins to think back about recent events and wonder if she DID have anything to do with her daughter becoming a menace to society.
This daughter turns out to be like a Jekyll and Hyde sort of person–acting sweet in front of Mom and being an evil thrill-seeking idiot outside the home. For kicks, she and her three friends rob gas stations, destroy schools and rape men. Oddly, however, they are not caught for the longest time because you can only assume everyone in the town (especially the cops) are idiots! The girls leave lots of fingerprints and other evidence behind but the cops conclude at one point that it’s the work of a gang of men from another town!! While the girls DID disguise themselves for one of the robberies, it’s pretty obvious they weren’t guys!!! And, when they raped a man and left him and his girlfriend as witnesses, don’t you think they could have identified the girls?! And, later in the film, when one of the father’s co-workers comes to the house and one of the girls’ boyfriends pulls a knife and threatens the visitor, don’t you think perhaps this MIGHT have clued somebody in to the fact that the girl and her friends were up to no good?! Regardless, the bad acting and silly script is very watchable in a salacious and laughable sort of way–particularly if you enjoy laughing at such films as REEFER MADNESS, SEX MADNESS or HIGH SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL. Plus, it is just funny seeing the actors(?) having trouble with their lines (such as the judge who appears to be reading his lines as he talks to the parents) and the inconsistent and brainless writing (for which Ed Wood was responsible). I particularly loved it when two of the bad girls just told a crook that they shot a cop—and then this crook picks up the phone and tries to call the police! Didn’t they just say they killed a policeman?! Didn’t you think perhaps they might do the same if you made this phone call?! Duh.
Overall, because the film is so earnestly stupid, it holds a near and dear place in the heart of every bad film fan–you know, the sort of people who enjoy laughing at horrible films as an exercise in self-torture. If you aren’t the sort of person who likes to do this, then my advice is to steer clear!!
Ed Wood sure can write ’em, can’t he?
Proving Ed Wood can write just as well as he can direct, his script The Violent Years is brought to life by another director, and the result is still not good. The Violent Years comes out of an age-old theme that people mistakenly think is recent- “Today’s kids are out of control and it wasn’t like that when I was that age!” Except, people have been saying that forever. Check the date of the film- 1956, remembered now as a golden, Leave It to Beaver age. Like the later A Clockwork Orange, this has a gang of four teens robbing and raping- intriguingly, these four are all girls, which makes it harder to sympathize for the man who is raped- this is more male fantasy than horror.
The film starts with the girl’s parents up in front of a judge, who speaks about how hard it is to try a good friend. This is indeed hard, because judges can’t do it at all- they have to recuse themselves. And since when can bad parenting be punished by the law? Much of what follows is ham-handed exploration of the kind of parenting that breeds delinquency- a mom who says her daughter’s issues can’t be all that important. And, skipping your kid’s birthdays causes crime. The girls attempting to be bad leads to leaden dialogue and acting and cheesy lines. One woman needs to be told by the man that the girls are pointing guns at them, at which point the girls compliment him for being observant. The worst the woman who gives the gang its jobs can call the girls is “jerks.”
Of course, it all ends with more “If only I had…” mourning from the parents, reflecting a morality play with all the subtlety of being hit over the head with a hammer.
