Sweet Sixteen (1983)

  • Horror
  • 1h 30m

A beautiful lonely girl named Melissa tries to make new friends from a town she’s currently living in. The only problem is, each of the boys that she spends time with end up brutally murdered. Her sixteenth birthday is on the way, but Melissa turns out to be a suspect when it seems she’s the last person who has seen her boyfriends alive.

This slasher film from director Dimitri Sotirakis (using the pseudonym “Jom Sotos”) is notable for its fascinating cast. Young Melissa (Aleisa Shirley) sees all of her friends being murdered after their 16th birthdays. Her mother (Susan Strasberg) worries, and the sheriff Dan (Bo Hopkins) is convinced that the local Indians led by Greyfeather (Henry Wilcoxon) are to blame. But when the end comes, the truth will shock even the most diehard horror hound. Patrick Macnee, Don Stroud, Larry Storch, and Sharon Farrell lead the cast, which also includes such genre favorites as Michael Pataki, Steve Antin, and Dana Kimmell, who starred in FRIDAY THE 13th PART III the same year.
