Complete Monster: The brutal pimp Tony forces the heroine of the movie, Madeline, into prostitution where he abuses and mistreats the girls. When he decides he wants no attachment remaining for Madeline in the outside world, he forges a letter to her parents which causes their suicide. He later gouges out Madeline's eye when she refuses a client. In order to control the girls, Tony forcibly addicts them to heroin and leaves them unable to go without a fix for longer than a few hours which he provides only in exchange for them selling their bodies.
Tear Jerker: Madeline going home, finding her parents hung, then finding the letter that Tony wrote, and not saying anything but shedding a tear from her one good eye.
The Woobie: You fuckin' kill those bastards, Madeline!
