Sweet Sixteen is a 1983 horror film directed by Jim Sotos and starring Bo Hopkins, Susan Strasberg, Dana Kimmell, and Patrick Macnee.


When Melissa Morgan (Aleisa Shirley), an attractive big-city girl, moves to a small Texas town, she creates quite a stir with her beauty and promiscuous attitude. She's 15 going on 16, and all the boys at her new school are anxious to get to know her. Suddenly, the younger brother of a local hellraiser (Don Stroud) is brutally murdered and the town sheriff (Bo Hopkins) must try to solve the murder before the killer strikes again. Along to help him is his Nancy Drew-ish daughter (Dana Kimmell).



The film was given a limited release theatrically in the United States by Century International in September 1983.[citation needed]

A director's cut of the film was released on DVD in the United States by Code Red DVD in 2008.[1]
