Sultry, trash-talking delinquent high school chicks brandish teeth, blades, guns, and (mostly) insults in <Switchblade Sisters, Jack Hill’s rude, crude whitesploitation extravaganza — a box office failure when it came out in 1975, but now being given a rerelease under Quentin Tarantino’s Rolling Thunder label. It’s a true time-warp sleazefest — ”The Wild One” starring the Manson girls after a makeover at the Jaclyn Smith Finishing School.
