Take cover, because it’s WOMEN OF ACTION Month at Mondo Mondays, featuring badass B-movies filled with femme-fueled fury that will really knock you out!
“She came from the streets of Hollywood … and now she’s going back to the boulevard with a vengeance!” A college student and former prostitute learns the hard way that the Three R’s – reading, writing and revenge – aren’t as easy as they look when trouble comes calling for this Avenging Angel! Years have gone by since Molly Stewart (Betsy Russell, Cheerleader Camp; Saw 3-6) worked as a teen prostitute in her old “High school honor student by day, Hollywood hooker by night” days. Now a law student at UCLA, Molly is determined to leave her tough past behind. But after learning that Lieutenant Andrews, the detective who helped save her life, has been murdered after witnessing a mob hit, Molly decides it’s time to put away the school books and return to her old neighborhood to avenge his death. Donning her favorite street attire – leather mini-skirt, striped tank top and .357 Magnum – Molly hits Hollywood Boulevard as “Angel,” her streetwalking alter ego, and she’s ready to make things right. With the help of her eccentric Boulevard pals, including retired cowboy actor Kit Carson (Rory Calhoun, Motel Hell), tough-talking artist Solly (Susan Tyrell, Cry-Baby), and kooky street performer Johnny Glitter (Barry Pearl, Grease), Molly is soon tearing up the town in full make-up and high heels, racing through the L.A. underworld with gun in hand and fishnets pulled tight, battling sleazy mobsters and hardened killers who want to send this Angel straight to hell! The second film in the highly entertaining Angel series, Robert Vincent O’Neil’s Avenging Angel is a campy, violent, Cannon-esque action/thriller mixing sleaze and sympathetic characters into an explosive B-movie cocktail garnished with solid acting and occasionally unintentional hilarity. Another winner from Roger Corman’s New World Pictures! (Dir. by Robert Vincent O’Neil, 1985, USA, 93 mins., Rated R)
