The Devil Queen

António Carlos Fontoura directed this queer horror film in 1974, which has since become a cult classic (now presented in a restored copy). The Queen Diaba (played by Milton Gonçalves, 1933-2022) is the one who controls, from the backstage of a brothel, the organised crime in the city. With matte eye shadow and a razor ready to dominate (legs or traitors), her authority over the cartel will be called into question and war is imminent.
