Coralie Fargeat‘s thrilling Revenge has been making huge waves out of several film festivals, including the TIFF’s Midnight Madness program as well as the Sundance Film Festival. In fact, our very own Joe Lipsett already reviewed the film, calling it “wild ride” with a “kick-ass heroine,” further adding it’s “a nicely revisionist spin on the tired rape-revenge trope [that has] a healthy dose of violence and viscera.” Critics have been raving, and since Shudder didn’t release in 2017, it makes it the first hotly anticipated horror film of 2018!
Written by Fargeat, the story sees “three wealthy, middle-aged CEOs – all married family men – get together for their annual hunting game in a desert canyon. It’s a way for them to let off steam and affirm their manhood with guns. But this time, one of them has come along with his young mistress, a sexy Lolita who quickly arouses the interest of the two others… Things get out of hand… Left for dead in the middle of this arid hell, the young woman comes back to life, and the hunting game turns into a ruthless manhunt…”
The “sexy Lolita” is Rings star Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz, who you can see kicking ass in the first trailer below, although it’s quite spoiler-heavy.
Die meisten R&R-Filme sind (meist auf mehr als bloß eine Weise) schlecht.
Per se mag ich derartige Filme nicht gerade.
Auf den hier bin ich allerdings gespannt. Wird bei erster Gelegenheit geschaut.
