Revenge - In Theaters May 11th!


The highly buzzed-about new film from Shudder is about to make its theatrical and on-demand premiere this May 11th! Revenge, starring Matilda Lutz and Kevin Janssens (Directed by Coralie Fargeat), has been making waves in the preview and film fest circuit – as "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). 

The debut from from French director Coralie Fargeat is a stunning arrival, painting a crimson canvas of hypnotic beauty and bloody retribution in this razor-sharp feminist subversion of the revenge-thriller.  The movie follows Jen (Matilda Lutz), who 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. Be sure to check out the film come May 11th!
