Revenge Trailer: A Blood-Soaked Feminist Revenge Thriller

revenge

There seem to be a lot of revenge flicks coming out of the woodwork this year and here is yet another one that debuted in the Midnight Madness section of TIFF last September. The story revolves around a woman who travels with her boyfriend to a remote desert villa only to have their romantic getaway shattered when his hunting buddies show up and assault her, leaving her for dead. Despite the generic title, the movie has earned rave reviews and looks to be a pretty extreme yet timely ode to female empowerment. Revenge is directed by French filmmaker Coralie Fargeat and stars Matilda Lutz (Rings) and it will be released by Neon in select theatres and on VOD on May 11th. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
