YMMV / Teen-Age Strangler

  • Angst? What Angst?: No one in the film other than the cops seems all that concerned about a psychopath going around murdering people. Barely a day after a violent murder, the friends of the victim all go out to a party. Mr. Royce seems more mad that his daughter was dating a member of a gang than that she was witness to a murder. All of the parents and teenagers seem more focused on trivial things like their social lives and stolen bikes over murders and gangs.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Mikey.
  • Memetic Mutation: "He didn't steal no bike neither!"
  • Narm Charm: The film is dripping with it, since Word of God said it was basically a "let's put on a show!" film, made by a group just for the heck of it. It's guileless and hard to hate.
  • Wangst: A healthy dollop from whiny Mikey. Betty is almost equally sobby.
