Rewind: Ms. 45

Before there was Death Sentence or the soon to be released The Brave One, there was one vigilante movie that broke the mold. Straight out of NYC's grindhouse reels was Ms. 45.

Abel Ferrara's rape-revenge masterpiece is classic 70's grindhouse at its best.

Plagiarizing from the IMDB plot summary:


A mute woman gets raped twice coming home from work and decides to take matters into her own hands. She dresses suggestively and roams the streets alone, reaking vengeance upon anyone who tries to take advantage of her. Eventually her secret life spills over into her regular life in the fashion industry.


Rewind the Insanity:

This movie is such great fun. Ferrara made this movie after Driller Killer (his NYC slasher killer masterpiece) and he goes into Repulsion, Last House on the Left (1972) and I Spit on Your Grave (aka Day of the Women) (1978) territory. Made in 1981, its full of vague vignettes and gritty NYC dialect conversation. Hoodlums, thugs, lowlives, pimps and degenerates. You gotta love NYC back in the late 70's early 80's. You get the feel for the times and the utter piece of shit decay of Gotham.

It's as fucked up as advertised. She does get raped....twice. Our killer protagonist Thana (played by the sexy Zoe Lund) kills her second attacker and grabs his gun and then she starts to go all Charles Bronson. Never has seeing a sexy fashionista mute woman holding a hand cannon look so good.

The ending is completely nuts and should be viewed multiple times. Decapitated head and all.

Combat Shock's Ending

I know I haven't posted on jadedviewer for a while, but I'm going to go post crazy and get some fuckin content up here.

So as I've promised, I'm here to let you know about the possible fucked up movies you haven't seen. If you're already an experienced horror underground junkie, you know about Combat Shock.

Directed by Buddy Giovinazzo, it tells the story of Frankie, an ex-Vietnam veteran. And IMDB plot summary says:

Frankie is a war vet whose life sucks. He has no money, a nagging wife, junkie friends, and a deformed baby. This is the story of one day in his pathetic post-war life.

In the gritty underground NY film scene, Combat Shock yells out, "Oh Shit!"

It's totally fucked up but the ending makes you want to vomit out incomprehensible language and lewd obscenities.

Just watch it for yourself you sicko jaded viewers. I mean for goodness sake it's got a fucked up deformed baby!!!
