A 1981 movie directed by Creator/AbelFerrara that tells the story of a mute seamstress, Thana (ZoeLund), that is brutally raped twice in one day and snaps. She goes on a killing spree in New York City; shooting any man she encounters with a .45 caliber pistol.
!!This film has the examples of:
* AllMenArePerverts: Virtually every male in this movie tries to come on to Thana or her co-workers. At least, that we see through her eyes.
* BetweenMyLegs: Used on the poster.
* BottomlessMagazines: Thana never reloads, never purchases additional bullets after taking the gun from the second rapist, and never runs out of ammunition.
* CuteAndPsycho: Thana
* DoesNotLikeMen: Thana. Understandable, since she was raped twice by men.
* KickTheDog: Literally - Thana mistreats her landlady's dog quite badly.
* MeaningfulName: "Thana", the name of the VillainProtagonist, is derived from the name for the Greek god of Death, "Thanatos". Thanatos can also refer to the term coined by Sigmund Freud, which refers to death instinct in humans.
* RapeAndRevenge: After Thana is raped two times in a day, she snaps and kills the second man who raped her with a tire iron. She then goes on to shoot any man who flirts with her or tries to rape her.
* SanitySlippage: At first, Thana only kills men who attempt to take advantage of her. Later, as she loses more of her sanity, she kills any man unlucky enough to be near her.
* TheSpeechless: Thana. Although [[spoiler:she screams when she is stabbed in the back by Laurie. And her only word is "sister", before she falls down dead.]]
* UnreliableNarrator: It's not clear how much of what we see after the rape scenes is real and how much is filtered through Thana's mental collapse.
