REVENGE

REVENGE

With the unequivocally titled Revenge, newcomer Coralie Fargeat gains instant entrée into the halls of Gallic extreme horror in the vein of Haute Tension and Inside. Genuflecting to the giddy exploitation delirium of I Spit on Your Grave - right down to calling the protagonist Jen - this is a rape retaliation thriller both tautly controlled and wildly over-the-top, executed with ashy style, sly visual humor and a subversive feminist sensibility. This mostly English-language pop-art carnage opera will make genre fans squeal and squirm. (DavidRooney,TheHollywoodReporter)
