Film Synopsis

“It’s nice to know that Hollywood Boulevard has always been seedy.”
— Briana G, LETTERBOXD

Molly Stewart (Donna Wilkes, JAWS 2) is at the top of her class at a prestigious private high school. But what her classmates and teachers don’t know is that Molly survives by working nights as a prostitute on Hollywood Blvd, in the company of her friends: a worldly transvestite, a retired cowboy movie star, and her cantankerous but kind-hearted landlady. However, her world begins to fall apart when a depraved, necrophiliac serial killer begins targeting LA’s streetwalkers. Mixing slasher-styled killing with the sweetness of an Afterschool Special — plus roles from Susan Tyrrell (CRY BABY) and Rory Calhoun (MOTEL HELL) — ANGEL is one of the seminal exploitation films of the early 1980s.
