Wild in the Streets

Wild in the Streets is a 1968 dystopic vision of a future Los Angeles during a time when the youth take the country over and everyone over 35 is confined to concentration camps. It stars Christopher Jones, Shelley Winters, Richard Pryor, Diane Varsi and Hal Holbrook.

youtube has it online:

Moria says it "has a satiric bite that still grabs one quite pleasurably more than three decades later". Roger Ebert gives it 2 stars and calls it "pretty bad". The Spinning Image says,
This could be a prequel to Logan's Run in a way, but a lot grimmer in tone, taking to extremes the worries of its day, although it's quaint to see a film that believes simple politics could change society so quickly.
