Ms. 45

Ms. 45

Directed by Abel Ferrara

Abel Ferrara’s 1981 grindhouse stars the late, great Zoë Lund as Thana, a mute seamstress who gets raped twice in one day. After Thana manages to kill (and dismember) her second attacker, she snaps and embarks on a killing spree aimed at lecherous, rapey men, which soon puts the whole city on edge. A companion-piece to Ferrara’s previous film, THE DRILLER KILLER, MS. 45 excels thanks to Lund’s extraordinary lead performance, which lends the film a feminist authenticity lacking in many of the rape-revenge films that preceded it. A haunting, thrilling must-see.

A mute seamstress goes on a killing spree after being assaulted in Abel Ferrara’s classic.

Cast: Helen McGara, Albert Sinkys, Darlene Stuto, Zoe Tamerlis-Lund

One of the most memorable movies of my young childhood so glad I was able to watch it once again. In my eyes a definite classic, a female vigilante movie which you seldom saw back in the days.
