Rape,revenge and violence!
on 5 June 2012
There's not much to say about "Ms 45" really, if you like gritty 70's/80's exploitation movies then you'll probably dig this.
The late Zoe Tamalis plays Thana, a mute girl living in New York. On her way back from work one day she is dragged in an alley and raped,also she is attacked and raped again later on in her apartment..she will not take this lying down and becomes...MS 45!
Thana goes on a killing spree, focusing on men who are up to no good, sleazy photographers, adulterers, gang members, they are all fair game!
Directed by Abel Ferrara (Driller Killer,Bad Lieutenant etc) this has the same gritty grimy grindhouse low budget feel as his early films like Driller Killer, though this is more professionally shot and directed this time. There is some debate if this is inspired by the swedish rape revenge pictute called "Thriller - A Cruel picture" where the girl in that movie who goes out for revenge is also mute, the story is different but i'm sure Ferrara latched onto a unique idea and crafted his own movie using that.
The DVD is a korean release with removable korean subs, also the box wrongly states the picture is 4.3 full frame when it is actually 185 widescreen non anamorphic.
