OK, well this movie wasn’t written by the late Jack Ketchum, but damn, it sure felt like one of his evil works. This is a horror movie in every sense of the word.
This female revenge movie didn’t feel over the top gory or bloody, it felt raw and real, full of emotion and a constant air of creepiness.
It wasn’t a ‘silly fun vengeance movie’ (not that “I Spit on Your Grave” is) But I feel like ISOYG has a certain fantasy / horror element, where it’s so gross and over the top that it becomes a sort of a ‘cool, edgy slasher movie.
This though, this felt like a true story-a 1970s style grindhouse movie that doesn’t care about your emotions, that will just put you through its relentless plot. Every death felt gross and nerve wracking, the music thundered uncomfortably throughout-creating a sense of dread. Dread. That is maybe the best way to describe this nasty little movie.
The acting was excellent, the story moved at a really nice pace. I promise not to ruin anything, but the ending is one of the most savage and ballsy endings you’ll ever experience-for me, it made the movie go from 4 stars to 5. See this movie, it’s destined to become a classic.
