On October 14th, Code Red, thru BCI, will release SWEET SIXTEEN on DVD. When Melissa Morgan (Aleisa Shirley), a gorgeous big city girl moves to a small Texas town, she creates quite a stir with her beauty and promiscuous attitude. She might be 15, going on 25, but all the boys at her new school are still anxious to get to know her. Shortly after her arrival, Melissa's dates start ending up dead. When the younger brother of a local hell raiser (Don Stroud) ends up dead, Melissa looks like the likely suspect. The town Sheriff (Bo Hopkins) must try to solve the killings before the killer strikes again. Along to help him is his Nancy Drew-ish daughter (Dana Kimmell, FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3). What secret will be revealed when Melissa turns SWEET SIXTEEN?. Directed by Jim Sotos, the film features an all star cast that includes Patrick Macnee, Susan Strasberg, Larry Storch, Henry Wilcoxon, Sharon Farrell and Michael Pataki. It’s presented for the first time in a directors cut.

Anyone privy to the what differences between the standard and directors cut are?

No clue here as I've never seen this film. Surprisingly, until Code Red announced it, I'd never heard of it either! (I always have a soft spot under my wing for forgotten slashers/horror flicks). Looking forward to it though.

I doubt there is much distinction and in any case, sadly, little could help as this film is, honestly, very poor indeed..............I tried to make it work on various levels and it just doesn't...It's all arbitrary however.....Hopefully it will find a girlfriend (or boyfriend, as higher-ups at Code Red prefer anyway) now that it's been given a proverbial "face-lift" and put back into the swinging singles scene of geeky consumer circles of obsession and compulsive spending......Give Jim Sotos a sense of delusional worth in his waning autumn years! Go out and buy this NOW!!! EVERYONE!!! BUY multiple copies!!!!!

Jesus christ knife (or your many other aliases) SHUT THE HELL UP. You're nothing more than pissy shut-in trash who needs his teeth kicked in. Code Red is going to do what they do, and NOTHING you whine about is going to change it. Choke on it and DIE.
