[holding a shotgun on Howard]
Hello Howard, come and sit down, I ain't mad at you.
Coffy baby, I knew they weren't really going to do it.
Oh I ain't here because they didn't try, lover.
Well they would've done it anyway, no matter what I said, you know that don't you?
Yeah I know, I told you I ain't mad.

Excellently filmed, directed, and written. One of the best action films of the 70s, equally as sadistic as any Italian or German "S and M" movies. Scenes of black man being tied and dragged by car make a modern audience VERY uncomfortable! Pam Grier shows it all! I dig the scene with her and the leather chick with the junky girlfriend. Jack Hill should be praised for bringing us the gem of a movie!
