What would you do if your husband, wife or business partner was making your life unbearable, to the point where there was no alternative but to have them removed- permanently? Could you bring yourself to do it? If not, bored Kensington housewife Joan (Tracy Reed, cousin of Oliver and niece of Carol) offers a possible alternative- for a price, she and her highly trained, all-female hit squad will very discreetly ‘take out’ the offending party and leave no trace behind .
In this dark, bleakly comic and sometimes grimly prophetic drama from Donovan Winter, which, like many of the best British exploitation films, features a story "ripped from yesterday's headlines", we enter the lives of both assassin and victim, and discover that in the London of 1975, whether swanky Knightsbridge or deepest suburban Orpington, no-one has immunity from murder, and everyone is expendable. Locations also take in the legendary Biba department store, shortly before its closure.
As usual, Winter assembles a cast of great performers from both ends of the cinematic spectrum, with future TV stars Bernard Holley (Z Cars, Tripods, Thriller, Dr Who, Phoenix And The Carpet, Birds Of A Feather) Brian Jackson (Revenge Of The Pink Panther, Protectors, Persuaders, Escort Girls) and Rula Lenska (Rock Follies, Take A Letter Mr Jones, Cluedo, Dr Who, Leap In The Dark, Confessions) rubbing shoulders with seasoned "blue movie" names Heather Chasen and Steve Amber, the former of whom is now a respected actress in her own right. There’s also a minor role for horror star Sally Faulkner (Prey, Vampyres, The Body Stealers) which the eagle-eyed amongst you will have fun spotting.
Is it the Mafia? Is it the Triads? Is it the Illuminati? The Men In Black? No, it's The Deadly Females - and they’ve got your name on their books...
