Oh, did we say "heroine?" Sorry. [[PlayingAgainstType This is]] ''[[DarkerAndEdgier not]]'' [[JohnHughes that type]] of MollyRingwald film.

The titular character is a teenage detective known only by her codename, which is... [[TitleDrop well, you know it already.]] Anyway, Basket's organization has been on the trail of a criminal madwoman, known only as Artemis. Basket's mentor/father-figure, Zeus, goes after Artemis himself, only to be killed. Basket is not happy. What follows is an ''extremely'' dark and brutal cat-and-mouse throughout the streets of Los Angeles, with Basket tossing the rulebook out of the window in her pursuit of vengeance, little knowing that it could potentially ruin her.

This film [[note]]which doesn't exist[[/note]] is notorious for a variety of reasons.
* The ''deeply'' TroubledProduction and subsequent ExecutiveMeddling.
* The incredibly graphic violence worthy of Shakespeare's TitusAndronicus.
* MollyRingwald getting naked.
* The sheer, unrelenting darkness of the film, which has reportedly [[BrownNote driven some viewers to suicide.]]
* The unprecedented controversy after the film's release, which helped to ruin MollyRingwald's career in the late eighties, as well as preventing first-time director Horatio Phelps from making a film again.
* The fact that the film has never been released on ''any'' home video format. A popular theory that continues to this day postulates that after the film was pulled a few weeks after release, ''every single print and negative of the film'' was destroyed. This hasn't stopped bootleg copies of the workprint from being leaked. In third-world countries. Some countries make the sheer possession of the film an ''offense punishable by death.''
