"A very special motion picture" is how New World Pictures sold this 1984 cult flick in the trailer. A more accurate description probably comes from its poster: "High School Honor Student by Day—Hollywood Hooker by Night!" Donna Wilkes plays Molly, a 15-year-old prep school student (Wilkes was actually in her mid-20s at the time) who leads a double life as the eponymous Angel, a hooker with a tight street family who knows the score. But when a psycho serial killer/ necrophiliac starts killing her friends, it's up to her to grab a gun and kick some ass. Popular enough that it spawned three sequels,

Angel is, well, pure exploitative trash. And damned if Hollywood just doesn't make 'em like that anymore. Relive the life and adventures of the girl whose shocking life inspires a cop to exclaim, "You're young, attractive and healthy—and swimming in a toilet bowl!" Did we mention this also has Dick Shawn in drag? The screening starts at 8 p.m. and costs $5.50, and there'll be classic trailers and art prints and such to boot. —Zack Smith
