101 Films presents The New Kids , a startling, non-stop ticket to terror from director Sean S. Cunningham ( Friday the 13th ). A key entry in the 1980s wave of juvenile delinquency movies, 'The New Kids' features early performances from Lori Loughlin ( Full House ) and James Spader ('Sex, Lies, and Videotape') in a particularly memorable role. Available for the first time in the UK since a VHS release as Striking Back in 1988, this edition comes with limited edition booklet and slipcase, and includes brand new interviews with director Sean S. Cunningham and writer Stephen Gyllenhaal.

After their parents die in a car crash, two all-American teens, Loren (Shannon Presby) and Abby (Lori Loughlin) go to live with relatives in a small Florida town. But trouble begins when members of a vicious gang, led by Dutra (James Spader), bet on who will be the first to seduce the innocent Abby. When she spurns their obscene advances, the thugs embark on a sadistic campaign of vandalism, arson, and assault. The savagery escalates until Loren must defend himself and his sister in a brutal fight to the death in a carnival midway. It's The New Kid's ... trying to make it in this town just might kill them!
