‘Savaged’ DVD Review

19 November 2014 12:55 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Amanda Adrienne, Tom Ardavany, Ronnie Gene BlevinsRodney Rowland, Brionne Davis, Ed Fletcher, Jason Gurvitz, Daniel Knight, John Charles Meyer, Kyle Morris, Marc Anthony Samuel | Written and Directed by Micheal S. Ojeda

Travelling across country to be with her fiancé, deaf mute Zoe (Adrienne) stumbles on a horrific crime. Zoe’s brave attempt to intervene seals her fate; she’s brutalized and left for dead. When an Indian shaman finds her clinging to life in a shallow grave he attempts to save her – but in the mystical process the spirit of an ancient Apache warrior enters her corpse hell-bent on revenge. But can she slaughter the men who attacked her in time before her body decomposes completely?

Described as a more horrific take on The Crow, Savaged is actually more a supernatural take on I Spit on Your Grave (or The Last House of the Left) – complete with a tortured heroine, »
