Ms. 45

Directed by Abel Ferrara

svg-play Trailer

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

Interesting movie. Kind of out there, but main character was great.

Rather than give a review, I’d rather pluck her eyebrows for her. God they’re awful. Hairy things!
