However, she is informed that her father has passed away and she travels back to the countryside to visit her father's home. While driving back home, she meets one of her rapist by chance and she discovers where he lives. Alice meets Adam and convinces him to come with her to take revenge ...

Goofs

When the main characters are driving through the woods after the sex scene, they hit a deer which completely smashes the windscreen. Immediately afterward, there is an attack scene, where she is dragged from the car after the windscreen is entirely smashed through. In a shot of the car, the number plate is hanging off, blood is on the windows and the windscreen is shattered. In the next scene, Danny Dyer is seen turning the alarm in the car off with the number plate attached, no blood or dents on the car and a completely intact windscreen which is almost shinier than before.

Not bad....could have been a lot better.
21 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Saw a preview of this last night. Still not completely sure what I made of it to be honest. It's a very short film at only 1 hour and twenty minutes and despite this it still feels a little padded as though there wasn't enough story to make it long enough to be a feature film. The key scenes are graphic and harrowing enough and I definitely left with a bad taste in my mouth. Gillian Anderson was probably the best thing about the film but I don't really buy Danny Dyer playing opposite her and there were certain scenes that were unintentionally humorous because of this. Dyer has definitely been a little miscast here and it does make you wonder whether it could have been better with a different leading man. The other problem I have with a film of this type is that in order for you to care about the plight of characters I believe you need at least a little insight into their lives prior to what we are seeing on screen, we need to know about who they are in order to root for them and I never really felt this film gave us the big picture in this regard. Despite it's flaws it's still a watchable drama/thriller but with a few more original ideas and a little added characterisation it could have been a whole lot better.
