Olive Films has announced that they are releasing Coffy (1973) onto Blu-ray. The film is written and directed by Jack Hill and stars Pam Grier, Booker Bradshaw, Robert DoQui, and William Elliott. Coffy will be available online and in stores on June 9, 2015.
She’s the ultimate tough and sexy heroine. She’s Soul Cinema superstar Pam Grier, and whether delivering her justice with a shotgun, a razor or just her bare hands, she doesn’t miss a beat in this “smashing, no-holds-barred tale of retaliation” (Variety)! Nobody ever commandeered the screen quite like Pam Grier, and Coffy “couldn’t be better! [It’s] one of the most entertaining movies ever made” (Quentin Tarantino)! Grier is Coffy, nurse by day and avenging angel by night. When she discovers that her little sister has been doped up – and freaked out – by a greedy drug pusher, she not only puts an end to his miserable days, but she vows to follow his trail of corruption up to the top – the very top. But what Coffy doesn’t realize is that all is not as it seems – and that the leafy green behind the pushers’ scene just may come from someone she knows!
Coffy was released in the United States on June 13, 1973 and grossed over $2 million at the box office.
