THE WARRIORS - "Can You Dig It?" (1979)

Welcome to Warrior Wednesday down in The Dungeon!
 Tonight I've got the ultimate Halloween story for you! It's a tale about a bunch of boys out trick or treating who get lost and spend the entire movie trying to get back home, kind of like Hansel and Gretel!

"The Warriors" is also a 1979 vision of a New York of the future.....

 .....But supposedly it's based on the ancient story of the Battle of Cunaxa! The interpretation might have changed a bit from 401 BC to 1979 AD just ever so slightly!

 So here we are! The future is now, the future is here!

 In the future if you live in New York, you and your buddies have to have some kind of shtick that makes you stand out from the rest of the schmoes on the street! Weird unity!

 It's gotta be rough to be a tough guy and still get up every morning and have to put your makeup on!

 Here's a more casual bunch, but I'm not too sure about those caps!

 The main guys, "The Warriors," have a more traditional look, like a motorcycle gang without any bikes!

 What about this troupe, out of work electricians?

 I think this was the Walmart crew!

 Don't trifle with The Lizzies or you might find yourself on the wrong end of the gun!

The pinball machine is way cooler than the really bad dude in the overalls and the roller skates in Playland!

And of course, the perennial favourites. The Baseball Furies!

So, yeah, a bunch of shit went down and now it's time to run.....



Hit It!

 At least they still have vinyl in the future!

Have not seen this since I was a kid. Used to get freaked out by it all, especially the "Warriors... Come out and plaaaaay..." But, from your pics, I wonder if I am only remembering parts that scared me.

Thanx Joe! We try and limit the pictures to about 21, but it's difficult when there's lots of eye candy in a movie, but that's the challenge, so I just decided to show some of the different gangs because they were funny. As it was I felt bad not showing any pictures of The Orphans gang. Thanx for hanging out with us!
