Check out the bloody red band trailer for upcoming thriller Revenge.
The upcoming feature receiving a U.S. release from distributors Shudder and Neon tells of what unfolds when a young woman (Matilda Lutz) is attacked and left for dead. She survives, which really isn’t good news for the despicable men that brutalised her. Crimson-soaked comeuppances ensue.
French writer-director Coralie Fargeat has been receiving some pretty solid reviews for her feature debut, with many commending the filmmaker for delivering an ambitious balance of gender commentary and pulpy excess. The visuals by Belgian cinematographer Robrecht Heyvaert look fantastic, too. It certainly won’t be for all tastes, but it sure appears to be a solid pic if you’re ready to stomach it.
Revenge will be hitting select U.S. cinemas and On Demand on May 11.
Official synopsis for Revenge:
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.
