On her way home from work, mute Thana is raped (with the rapist being played by Abel Ferrara himself). Totally shaken by this experience, she eventually returns home, only to find a burglar (Peter Yellen) in her appartment ... who soon enough decides to rape her as well - but this time, Thana defends herself, and while he's really at it, she hits him over the head with a stone, and once knocked out, she even kills him.

Then though she realizes she has a corpse in her appartment, and somehow has to hide it from her nosey landlady (Editta Sherman) and the landlady's dog ... so she saws up the corpse in little pieces, puts the pieces into bags, and everytime she goes out, she takes one of the bags with her and drops it wherever, in the garbagecan, the open hood of a car, in a locker at the train station, heck, she even minces a part of her rapist and feeds it to her landlady's dog.

One time though, she is seen dropping a bag, and a stranger thinks she has lost it and wants to return it to her - which Thana misinterprets as an assault, and she pulls a gun (which originally belonged to the burglar) out of her bag and shoots the stranger ... but mysteriusly enough she realizes she enjoys shooting people, but only men, filthy, sexist men (even if she doesn't always check if they are really filthy and sexist ...).

Soon enough, Thana goes on the prowl night after night, shooting photographers, gangmembers and Arab sheiks alike, and everythign inbetween.

Thing is, Thana's work (at a fashion manufacturer) suffers under the strain she has been under, and soon enough, he boss Albert (Albert Sinkys) offers her two alternatives: either she's fired or she accompanies him to a big Halloween-party - and Thana decides on the second option ...

However, for the party, she arrives not only dressed up as a nun (and a very sexy one), she also brings her 45, and when her boss takes her to an upstairs bedroom, she cold-bloodedly shoots him. Then she returns to the main partyroom and starts shooting male guests, one after the other - until a female guest (one of her colleagues at work) grabs a cake knife and stabs Thana from behind. Knife in the back, Thana hurls around to look into the face of her assailant, and with her dieing breath, she utters her first words (at least in the film) - "Sister !" ...

 

Abel Ferrara's third feature film (after Driller Killer and his adult film Nine Lives of a Wet Pussy) is also his first masterpiece, a film that can be seen as exploitation-/rape'n'revenge-flick or psychological study of a woman traumatized by rape, a B-actioner or a sensitive portrait of life in New York City's Lower East Side - but whichever way you see it, the film works like a charm, the direction is tight, the camerawork is great, the script is fast-paced yet intelligent and witty, and then 19 year-old Zoe Tamerlis, who carries the entire film on her shoulders without ever muttering a word (except for the finale) is nothing short of amazing.

Highest recommendation !!!
