Her parents (Gaylord St. James and Cynthia Carr) express concern both at the band and Mari’s friendship with Phyllis. They let her go, giving her a peace symbol necklace as a gift before she leaves.

Phyllis and Mari go to the city for the concert. On the way, they hear a news report on the car radio of a recent prison escape, involving criminals Krug Stillo (David A. Hess), a rapist and serial killer, his son Junior (Marc Sheffler), Sadie (Jeramie Rain), a psychopath and sadist, and Fred “Weasel” Podowski (Fred Lincoln) a child molester, peeping tom, and murderer. Before the concert, Mari and Phyllis stroll the streets, seeking someone who might sell them marijuana. They find Junior, who leads them back to an apartment, where they are immediately trapped by the criminals. Phyllis tries to escape, then tries to reason with the criminals to let her go, but their captors subdue and rape her. Meanwhile, Mari’s unsuspecting parents prepare a surprise party for her…

“Keep repeating, It’s Only a Movie….” Wes Craven ’s notoriously nasty, some say degrading, Vietnam-era reworking of The Virgin Spring expanded the envelope for shocking depictions of depravity onscreen. Shot for peanuts in 16mm and originally relegated to grindhouses and drive-ins, it has since emerged as something of a classic and was remade in 2009.
