This is a comparison between the Italian VHS released by Avofilm and the US-DVDR released by Something Weird Video.
One night, four schoolgirls are raped by a gang on their way home. Since they completely lost all trust in the justice system, they decide to take the law into their onw hands. After being trained in Kung Fu and shooting they form the Black Alley Cats. From then on, the girls wear masks and sneak through the nights to find their tormentors to take revenge. Additionally, they also fight other crime and injustice.
"Black Alley Cats" is a small, yet interesting grindhouse flick from 1973 which mainly focuses on sex. Almost all male characters want to have their way with the girls. The evil rapists, the lesbian principle, the greasy doctor and his wife, you name it. On top of it there are excessive shower and cat fight scenes. This might make one look past the fact that the movie is - contentwise - humbug and the overall timing is rather dull. By the way - the movie includes Uschi Digard in a minor role.
The Italian VHS by Avo Film includes an alterative cut of the movie. Some erotic scenes were cut out, while some new material had been included. Mainly, this material revolves around a car ride through New York, however, there is also a new party scene. It is unlikely that the new material was filmed later on; instead, it probably stems from an entirely different movie.
