Just for the Hell of It (1968) Reviewed

A gang of nasty teens tool around on cycles and wreak havoc wherever they go. If they’re not ripping up a soda shop they’re beating up the elderly or terrorizing little leaguers. The giggles stop however for a pretty heinous rape scene that destroys the movie’s last couple of reels. This would seem disturbingly coarse if the movie were remotely competent. It’s not without its charms however. The story and dialogue are quintessential H.G. Lewis and that’s got to be worth something. Though Lewis-loving gorehounds will probably be disappointed by the lack graphic brutality. Friedman’s much lighter and (relatively) superior The Blast-off Girls is paired with this on Something Weird’s DVD release.
