Drafthouse Films has announced they will be releasing an uncut and remastered edition of the shocking vigilante thriller Ms. 45 to theaters next month.
Remastered in HD from the original negative, the 1981 cult classic by director Abel Ferrara (Driller Killer, Bad Lieutenant) spins the gritty, controversial tale of a mute New York City garment worker (played by the late Zoë Lund, a.k.a. Zoë Tamerlis) who becomes a brutal vigilante after she's sexually assaulted by multiple men on the same day.
Ms. 45 will open in Los Angeles, New York, Austin, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Houston, San Francisco and Seattle on Friday, December 13th. Screenings will expand to additional markets in the following weeks through early 2014, followed by a DVD, Blu-ray and VOD release in March.
