Rape Squad - Click to View Larger Rape Squad - Click to View LargerThe Rape Squad AKA Act of Vengeance (1974) - Linda gets raped by a man in a hockey mask. She finds that a few other women have had the same treatment. Together they form a squad that starts looking for the man and also changes the mind of would-be rapists.

Just watched this movie on Netflix this afternoon. The movie definitely sends mixed messages. The movie was written by a woman, but directed by a man. The girls join together to form a squad to avenge the rapes of themselves and other women, but they make their organizational plans while they all float nude in a hot tub. During the rape scenes, the camera concentrates almost lovingly on the nudity of the rape victim. See what I mean about mixed messages?

There are some good scenes, such as where the "Rape Squad" all pile out of a VW Microbus and beat the shit out of a pimp who's hasseling one of his "ladies". They also trash his car and leave him laying on the hood.

All in all, if you have Netflix, it's not a horrible way to spend an hour and a half, but I wouldn't buy it on DVD.
