Storyline

Annie's (Jennifer Blanc) life is in jeopardy after she's witnessed the horrific rape and murder of her closest friend. Fleeing from two attackers (Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood) she stumbles across kyle (Michael Biehn), a recluse living in the middle of the woods. Kyle finds the stillness of the woods comforting. The ruggedly handsome loner stays far from civilization - that is - until a single knock on his door throws his solitary life into chaos. Two worlds collide in this psychological thriller that will make you question your trust in mankind. Written by Production Staff

doesn't add anything to the genre
6 August 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I was looking forward to see The Victim. Have seen a lot of Biehn flicks I liked his performance in Bereavement (2010) and liked The Divide (2011) his second attempt as a director here I didn't like. Being sold as a grindhouse movie to pick in on the success of the genre I can't really say it was a grindhouse flick. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad on part of the directing but it didn't deliver gore or anything to call it a grindhouse.

It's more flick with a lot of talking and a bit of action that you could see coming miles away. The end wasn't a surprise at all. Slowly you can see who the real killer is. It do has a steaming love scene between Biehn and his actual wife Jennifer Blanc who isn't afraid to show her body here. For the horror buffs you will see another famous face, that of Danielle Harris. She's not that often in this flick but when she does she really looks sexy and if that tattoo is for real, just have a look at it. She's walking around as a whore and do shows her body a few times in sexy underwear.

On part of the horror itself there isn't any at all. We do have flashbacks explaining what went wrong but you could guess it all by just watching The Victim. You can only ask yourself, who is the real victim. The last 10 minutes has the only gore to see but by then it's too late to call it a horror.

Just another mediocre flick with a fine cast but it doesn't deliver anything special to the genre. Only the hunters for celebrity nudity should watch this flick.

Nevertheless, it's been promoted well being spotted in every horror magazine and released worldwide. Still, I missed something. You can see it with your kids, maybe that says enough.

Gore 0,5/5 Nudity 1/5 Effects 2/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 0/5
