I have been obsessed with posters of the 80’s B-movie series Angel…about a girl who spends her days as a high school student, and moonlights as a hooker on the boulevard. I KNOW! Don’t give me that side eye….

Angel has a rough life. Her pepaw jammed when she was a kid and her mom is sick..so she has to make that scrilla on the streets. When a psycho starts killing off her hooker friends, Angel hides a gun in a box of fried chicken and gets all Crayvenger. There is a scene of her running after the killer while wearing heels that I swear lasts ten minutes. I really need these posters adorning my walls. Why am I so obsessed?

I could only find this pic of Angel III: The Final Chapter so I’m bummed there isn’t one for the third movie like the posters above. The role of Angel is played by three different actresses in each film. Mitzi Kapture (WHAT A NAME!) is in the last film. Why did that name sound so familiar to me? She co-starred with Rob Estes in my favorite 90’s sexy Miami crime drama, Silk Stalkings. Sigh. I know I am probably the only one who watched that show.

The shining star in Angel is Susan Tyrell as a tough-talkin’ lesbian. Stay tuned for a post solely dedicated to the femme-phenom that is Susan Tyrell.
