This film starts out as a story about girl gangs, and the efforts of some good people - sheriff Rhodes (Paul Hoffman), preacher Steele (David C.Hayes), and teacher O'Hara (Arlene Cooney), with strongman Lobo (David C.Hayes again) somehow thrown into the mix - to stop them. Soon though the film shifts its focus to drug abuse to finally refocus on Lila (Sandra Delgado), a girl having escaped from a mental institution - where she was put for killing her father - who now hooks up with her sister Rhoda (Katie Dugan) and creepy gangleader Lark (Mike Cooney) in an effort to leave the country ... and believe it or not, she makes her sister kill her mother along the way.

In the finale though, the Sheriff and his men catch up with Lila, Rhoda and Lark, all the baddies get their just desserts, the boat they were planning on leaving the country on is blown up with the help of a giant octopus, and the city is freed of the scourge of delinquent teen girls.

And if you think that is confusing, wait until you hear Criswell (Rob Gorden) making sense of it.

 

Admittedly, Devil Girls sounds just like another bad (and badly written) film ... but it isn't (or maybe it is, but intentionally so). In fact, Devil Girls is a loving hommage to the work of Ed Wood, a hommage that goes beyond simpl throwing angora sweaters at its audience with its meandering narrative, its repeated shift of narrative focus, its camp performances, its over-the-top dialogue, its odd inclusion of stock footage, its constant interruptions of Criswell as incompetent narrator, stating things that have little to do with the onscreen goings-on, its many jump cuts and its repeated sudden change of film stock. And somehow, all of this falls together to present the audience with one weird film experience that in all its other-worldliness really seems to invoke the spirit of Ed Wood - something most filmmakers referencing Ed Wood as their main influence simply fail to achieve.

If you are into weird, surreal movies, you simply have to watch this !!!
