    Release Date: 6th April 2015
    Format: Blu-ray
    Starring: Pam Grier, Booker Bradshaw, Robert DoQui
    Directed by: Jack Hill

    Synopsis: THE ONE CHICK HIT SQUAD!

    Regarded as one of the best of the Blaxploitation genre along with Shaft and Superfly, Coffy has been described as “one of the most entertaining films ever made” by Quentin Tarantino.

    With Coffy Pam Grier was catapulted to stardom and iconic status following solid roles in earlier ‘chicks in chains’ films. Here she plays nurse ‘Coffy’ Coffin seeking vigilante justice when her little sister is hospitalised by a smack pusher. Coffy uses her body, bullets and blades to get justice, working her way to the top of the criminal ring. But as she nears the top she finds the level of corruption is closer to home than she thinks.

    When American International Pictures lost the chance to make Cleopatra Jones the studio looked for another project and turned to up and coming B-movie auteur Jack Hill (Spider Baby, Pit Stop). Coffy was such a success that the studio fast tracked Grier’s next movie (Foxy Brown) with Hill straight away.

    Brilliant! Been hoping they would do this after doing such a good job with Foxy Brown.

    Of course they are. I waited a couple years for a blu-ray but gave up last month and watched it for the first time on DVD. Oh well, at least it looks like there are some worthwhile special features.
