Fargeat masterfully plays up to stereotypes before ingeniously subverting and owning them.
November 2, 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.

August 24, 2018
Revenge is bloody, disturbing, tense, and highly stylized. French horror is so exciting right now and I can't wait to see more from Coralie Fargeat.

The script, lamentable in all aspects, does not even spend some time to develop the personality of the protagonist so that it rises slightly above the male villains. [Full review in Spanish]

June 20, 2018
Revenge is as much a jarringly smart exploration of gendered violence as it is a slasher spectacle.
June 7, 2018
Fargeat avoids modern cliches, such as altered timelines or found footage, to deliver a suspenseful nail-biter of a thriller, one that updates an old format with an interesting take on gender politic
