Children of the Night (1985)
Children of the Night
Color, 93 min.
Directed by Robert Markowitz
Cast: Kathleen Quinlan and Mario Van Peebles
Fact-based drama about sociology graduate (Kathleen Quinlan) who starts working with teen prostitutes in Hollywood. The film does not draw back on its depiction of the brutality that the teens face nor of the exploitation that occurs from the pimps and johns who use them. Pat Benatar’s song “Hell is for Children” is used to set the film’s theme.
