Can we get a little shout out to Drafthouse Films? As the majors continue to put more money into big franchises (see everything being released in 2015), it's guys like Drafthouse (and A24, Roadside Attractions, IFC Films, etc.) that keep cinephiles excited. And in addition to taking on challenging foreign films and edgy American movies, Drafthouse has also resurrected cult fare as well. "Miami Connection," "Wake In Fright," and the forthcoming "The Visitor" are just some recent examples and there's one more to keep an eye on: Abel Ferrara's "Ms. 45."

Can we get a little shout out to Drafthouse Films? As the majors continue to put more money into big franchises (see everything being released in 2015), it's guys like Drafthouse (and A24, Roadside Attractions, IFC Films, etc.) that keep cinephiles excited.

"Miami Connection," "Wake In Fright," and the forthcoming "The Visitor" are just some recent examples and there's one more to keep an eye on: Abel Ferrara's "Ms. 45."

The director's controversial 1981 movie is getting dressed up to hit theaters and VOD, and a new/old trailer has arrived. Starring the late Zoë Lund, the film follows a mute garment district seamstress who takes matters into her own violent hands after getting raped twice in one day. And as you might guess from the title, there will be blood. Critics weren't kind to the movie back in the day, but it has since grown in favor, although the home video releases to date have seen minor cuts to the movie during both rape sequences. However, everything has been fully restored for this release.

"Ms. 45" starts rolling into theaters on December 13th in limited release and will be available to watch at home next year. Check out the trailer and pretty stellar poster below.
