Those who look for blood, drugs, caricature,... will be more than satisfied. [Full Review in Spanish]

Instead of the typical rape-revenge movie through a perspective of men envisioning the trauma and subsequent vengeance of women, this story challenges the male gaze.

Revenge is a beautifully realized, amusingly sick, pointedly subversive and uncompromising piece of exploitation that is sure to shock and nauseate in the best of ways. I can't wait to see what director Coralie Fargeat comes up with next.

...packs more of an impact than any 10 random 'straight-to-disc' titillating terrors.

Jen is a revenge heroine for the ages. Smart, resourceful, and determined to show those bros just how wrong they were to underestimate her.

Coralie Fargeat ... directs with style and grit, painting a visceral picture that never shies away from being bloody or racy, but manages to avoid falling into exploitation.

Even its plot holes and inconsistencies cease to become much of a point. "Revenge" is just that satisfying to watch as [Coralie] Fargeat uses genre staples and gender expectations to give us a gruesomely satisfying thrill ride.

With a pared down plot and only four characters present for any substantial amount of time, this film relies entirely on force of personality. Thankfully, it has that in spades.

Overwhelming emotions and feminist prowess are drawn from the visceral, agonizing, and often-cartoonish images that hold this sick n' ferocious film together.

Matilda Lutz is clearly a stand-out in an exciting twist on a well-worn genre.

What Revenge lacks in believable biology it makes up for in style and highly satisfying action beats.

With her stylish and bloody rape-revenge thriller, French first-timer Coralie Fargeat turns a disputable subgenre upside down.
December 7, 2018
Nothing about Fargeat's approach to this tale is the least bit nuanced or subdued, because said tale practically demands a primal scream.
December 3, 2018
Whilst the message is necessary, the power is lost in a slow movie that lacks the effectiveness of its French genre contemporaries.
November 29, 2018
Revenge excels on nearly every technical level, and while the plot fits neatly into the rape-revenge subgenre, it easily puts all others to shame.
November 8, 2018
Fargeat masterfully plays up to stereotypes before ingeniously subverting and owning them.
November 3, 2018
Inside its gorgeous, candy-colored packaging -- as confident a debut as we've seen in recent years -- Revenge has a warrior of a protagonist who is easy to root for, villains who are easy to hate, and satisfactory justice dispensed.
November 2, 2018
Revenge is an intense, mesmerizing, and extremely brutal film. I can say without a doubt this film was my favorite at the International Horror and Sci-fi Film festival.

Vengeance is a dish served gory in this stylish, brutish bloodbath.

Had me on the edge of my seat the entire time.
