Unncesary Remake the an already explotation of "Straw dogs" de Peckinpah,"The house of the left" de Craven or even "The Texas Chain Saw massacre....However, It is fair to say that is substantially better than the original...To watch when you do not have other film to watch...
Fiedler said tragedy was pagan and comedy christian because death was the end in tragedy while "happily ever after" meant heaven. Rape-revenge seems similar: sexist imaginaries gives way to feminist - but which is more implausible, the ever rapine male(s) or the ever vengeful female? Back when, we used to call this "playing to both sides of the street," or. pandering, or. "I'll jack your boner if you lick my clit."
Too bad the "story" is only here to justify the (brilliant) torture scenes of the second part of the movie. I would have liked to care about the characters in the first part when we get to know them, but they're just dumb and act nonsensically. I was more sad about the old man who rents the cabin than about the female hero... That wasn't the point, was it?
Remake chiaro/scuro dello storico Non Violentate Jennifer del '78. Abbastanza attinente per i primi 15/20 minuti, poi la necessità di attualizzare la pellicola. Evitabile, ma inesorabile. Le colonne portanti del film, Rape & Revenge, vengono pompate come è giusto che sia. Molta violenza visiva, torture porn stile Hostel e tanta voglia di vendetta. Non raggiunge, però, l'inarrivabile pellicola di Meir Zarchi.
Well... somehow i liked this torture-porn movie. It's an exploration of a gang-bang sex offenders. They have stalked her, they rape her brutally and then... she escaped. This is the first part of the movie. The second part is her revenge... and it will be a very nasty revenge. However, the movie lacks some more subtle and more psicosis from her. 5/10 - Decent - not good nor bad
This has got to be one of the worst films i have ever seen. The production values are good and it is competently filmed evend acted and directed. It is torture porn though. Though itis a remake it feels like it is violence just to show violence hidden under a rape revenge tale. It has nothing else really going for it other then you rooting for her to finish them off.
An improvement over the original? Well yes, but first, that wasn't that difficult since that movie is pretty weak. To this day i don't know why it's considered a "cult-classic". And secondly this is a story that has been told many times before, so there's very little you can improve. Pretty average.
I feel as though this film exhausted itself trying to be "shocking". Which is a mistake so many films make these days. Everyone is trying to get their audience unsettled, but for the most part this just came off as distasteful and vapid. It was long winded with 'shock factor' that left me feeling cheated with it's ostentatiousness. 2 stars as the film did have a moment or so that entertained me. Glad I only spent $1.
