Capital Celluloid - Day 77: Saturday Mar 19, 2011

Ms. 45 (Ferrera, 1980): Rio Cinema, 11.30pm

A rare screening of an early Able Ferrera movie and one not to be missed. If this rape revenge movie is anything like the director's Bad Lieutenant (1992) which I saw recently then punters who turn up at the Rio are in for quite some experience. Bad Lieutenant is cinema of a very personal and committed kind and from what I have read filmgoers can expect somehting very similar from Ms. 45.

Here is respected horror critic Kim Newman's review of the 1984 video release from Monthly Film Bulletin.

Respect to cigaretteburns.com for another superb midnight movie selection - you can find their website here. And here is the trailer.
