“The first horror heroine of the Time’s Up era is born.”
Jen Yamato, LOS ANGELES TIMES
"A hell of a directorial debut that spins the genre’s tradition of sexual exploitation on its head in favor of an absolutely brutal, blood-soaked cavalcade of violence that would make the New French Extremists blush… A stylish, vibrant, expertly-paced survivalist horror movie that promises plenty of talent to watch, both behind and in front of the camera."
Haleigh Foutch, COLLIDER
“Coralie Fargeat goes the full grindhouse with flair, channeling a female gaze and a wicked sense of humor into a rape payback thriller that churns a river of blood.”
David Rooney, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“Coralie Fargeat’s feature directorial debut isn’t only an astonishing, subversive take on tired clichés; it’s also a confidently crafted tale of female survival and rebirth…a different kind of superhero story, where power is found in survival”
Britt Hayes, SCREENCRUSH
Debut director Coralie Fargeat announces her stunning arrival, painting a crimson canvas of hypnotic beauty and bloody retribution in this razor-sharp feminist subversion of the revenge-thriller.
Jen (fearlessly embodied by Matilda Lutz, RINGS) is enjoying a romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend which is suddenly disrupted when his sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. Tension mounts in the house until the situation abruptly––and viciously––intensifies, culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, Jen survives and reemerges with a relentless, wrathful intent: revenge.
A white-knuckle tale of transgression and transformation, REVENGE gloriously blurs the lines of vengeance and survival while simultaneously delivering a ferocious dissection of gender and genre.
