What happens next is expected-a roaring rampage of revenge, with each of the three hunters confronted like a video game boss-but Fargeat has some fun tricks to deploy.

Revenge won't be an experience every viewer can handle, but as a piece of extreme horror, it's an intelligent and flashy debut.

If you usually find the genre icky and exploitative, try this one-but only if you've got the stomach for an abattoir's worth of blood in a single movie.

It's a film that manages to leer at its scantily clad heroine only to eventually make you root for her to dish out as much bloody punishment as possible.

Though the film makes a valiant effort to subvert a sexist formula by shrouding itself in French art film trappings and pseudo-empowering femininity, it ultimately falls prey to its exploitative roots.

Offers a woman's POV on the age-old tale and succeeds in turning a B concept soaked in blood into a pure adrenaline rush of terror, grounded firmly in the real and horrifying dynamics that breed rape culture.

An aggressively stylized, absolutely brutal rape-revenge film from French newcomer Coralie Fargeat.

September 22, 2017
Ample style, remarkable tension, decidedly French black humor, and more blood than I believe the human body actually contains.
September 16, 2017
Tautly controlled and wildly over-the-top, executed with flashy style, sly visual humor and a subversive feminist sensibility.
