A sexy black nurse takes vigilante justice against inner-city drug dealers after her sister becomes their latest victim.
The surprising success of this film forced American-International Pictures to fast-track Pam Grier's next picture, Foxy Brown (1974), which it released 11 months later.
Oh! Oh! Ohhhh! Oh, when you do that it makes me feel so good. Mmmm. You make me feel so happy. Ahhh...
When Coffy is taken to the river under the freeway, the weather goes from dry, to raining, to dry again.
The film was initially rejected for UK cinema under the title "Coffey" and then passed 6 months later with minimal BBFC cuts (to the stabbing of Omar). All later releases were fully uncut.
