Angel: Honor Student By Day, Hooker By Night

angell

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.

OMG, why have I never seen these movies. I am bummed that Netflix only has the first one, so I am going to have to scope out my local pawnshops for it.

Also, I totally watched Silk Stockings..it was like Miami Vice full of sex…LOL!

Susan Tyrell in Cry Baby is the ultimate! She’s also in a pretty awesome soft core B movie you may have heard of… Poison Ivy: The New Seduction. Hahaha- so goooood! It’s with Jamie Pressley and Shanna Moakler. They play it a lot on HBO in China but they cut out all the sex stuff which basically means the story doesn’t make sense.

dude, in SA we get all 80′s all the time on late night TV. i think they ran the full silk stalkings series back to back twice or something! when i was younger, i used to sneak peeks of the red shoe diaries when my parents weren’t around – very risque…

Lordy, I remember this – it was totally titillating when I was in school. Then we discovered Caligula and nothing was ever titillating again. I frickin love the red heels/white lacy socks combo in that last pic. xxx

I totally remember these movies. My mom would never let me rent them as she deemed them too slutty for her already gay son. LOL! Time to Netflix these!!!

I have Angel I & II on VHS! Thrift store finds that have been haunting my old room back in Michigan. I’ll have to re-watch them next time I’m in town.

HAHAHA, I haven’t even thought about Silk Stalkings in FOREVA. I thought I was the only one who watched that….I always loved how EVERY place they went had SEXY NEON lighting. (esp the police station)

I had totally forgotten about ANgel. And I had no idea they made THREE of them! You are amazing.

I saw this poster in a collectables book and felt the same way. Weird, I know. I’m a bit ashamed, but man………….!
