      steve d Works ok because of Blair. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Incredible story about Teenage runaway Chris, and her horrific treatment in a girl's group home. It's hard to believe at some points in this story, that this was originally a TV movie! Linda Blair, perfectly cast as Chris is tearfully heartbroken by all those she needs to help her but instead fail to do anything but mess her up worse. Should be shown to ever 9 year old girl to shock them out of trying to run away from their problems. Great movie Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a good film about bad arse girls. A bit dated in some ways. Linda Blair did a good performance. The rape scene is shocking. No mushy happy endings here. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review bill t Linda Blair in reform school movie that's probably best known for that scene in the shower where she's rather rudely introduced to a toilet plunger. If you take THAT away, it's not bad, somewhat predictable, but it does have a few surprises up it's sleeve (like making her Dad a total asswipe). Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member scared straight to not to commit any crime and go to jail (did not want to meet johnny) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member In the 1970s Network Television movies didn't get much sleazier than this!
