Part of 1973
“The baddest One-Chick Hit-Squad that ever hit town!” Nurse “Coffy” Coffin (Pam Grier) leads a double life. During the day, she’s working at the hospital, but at night, she’s an avenging angel on a personal vendetta — tracking down the drug pushers who got her younger sister hooked and exacting revenge. From exploitation filmmaker extraordinaire Jack Hill, COFFY features supporting performances by Robert DoQui and cult film darling Sid Haig with an amazing Roy Ayers soundtrack.
“...One of the finest flicks from the era, a snappy revenge action movie with a feminist slant, a killer soundtrack, a sense of the absurd, a little social outrage, and a crowd-pleasing structure designed to elicit grindhouse cheers that have yet to fade. Pam Grier’s star-making feature is just as ludicrously entertaining to dip into these days as it was in 1973.” —Phil Brown, That Shelf
