Watch: Drafthouse Films' Re-Release Trailer for Abel Ferrara's 'Ms. 45'
"A brilliant, gory--and finally human--cult classic." Sounds delightful. Drafthouse Films has posted a new re-release trailer for cult horror classic Ms. 45, directed by Abel Ferrara starring the late model/actress/musician/screenwriter Zoë Lund as a mute garment-district seamstress. After "falling victim to multiple unspeakable assaults", she goes on a one-woman homicidal rampage against all of New York City's entire male population. I've never seen this film - but everything about it looks kind of awesome, especially in the second half of the trailer. Remastered for re-release next year, in theaters again first later this winter. Enjoy!
Watch the new re-release trailer for Abel Ferrara's Ms. 45, released online by Drafthouse Films:
For those who don't know, the film follows a mute garment seamstress (Zoe Lund) who starts a homicidal rampage against the men in New York City after she's fallen victim to one too many assaults. It's a feminist revenge thriller, which doesn't come around very often, and Ferrara has said, "it shook people up to see an innocent person like themselves suddenly becoming a wanton murderer." It has all the violence of Death Wish, but with a surreal style that only the director of Bad Lieutenant and King of New York - Abel Ferrara - can deliver. Drafthouse Films is re-releasing Ms. 45 in theaters starting December 13th - full listing here.

If you like old school cult action movies and you are in the L.A. area check out a double screening of Deadly Prey and it's long awaited sequel Deadliest Prey on November 30th. http://www.cinefamily.org/films/video-nights/#video-nights-deadly-prey-deadliest-prey-cast-in-person

I saw this way too young, I think I was about 13 or 14...messed me up right good. Now that I'm in my forties, I look forward to revisiting it.
