Cheap and ugly vigilante/rape and revenge thriller.
26 April 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Eighteen year old sister of Chris Mulkey is gang-raped and murdered by four drunken degenerates.Her brother takes a gun and kills them one by one in "Death Wish" fashion."Deadbeat" was released to theaters as "Tomcats" in 1977 and on video in the United States as "Avenged".In UK it was released on video under the title "Getting Even".There are two pretty nasty gang-rape scenes in "Deadbeat" as well as plenty of nudity and some misogynistic violence.The film looks cheap,but the plot is fast paced and interesting.Of course "Getting Even" plays like a low-key version of "Death Wish",so you know what to expect.I did like it.8 out of 10.
