Ms. 45

After being raped twice in one night, a mute seamstress transforms herself into a leather-clad avenger and goes on a killing spree against lecherous males. A camp premise, but the movie, directed in 1981 by Abel Ferrara, is anything but: the cruddy, low-key lighting, the sleazy New York City locations, the vividly rendered violence, and the weird intensity of the lead actress (one Zoe Tamerlis) add up to a vision so oppressively bleak it's barely tolerable. In other words, check it out.
