When Katie innocently accepts an offer to have new photos taken for her portfolio, the experience quickly turns into a nightmare of rape, torture and kidnapping. Now, she will have to find the strength to exact her brutal revenge.
Steven R. Monroe
Jennifer is still haunted by the memory of being gang raped and almost killed years ago. At her therapist's advice, she joins group therapy and meets similar women. She befriends one and they want more than just talk - justice/vengeance.
Joe Grant, a light-skinned African-African, heads to a small Southern town to investigate the lynching death of his brother. He draws the attention of a gorgeous heiress, then learns that she might have been involved in the murder.
After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.
The film follows Jennifer, a writer who is working on a new novel and needs to get out of the city to finish it. She rents a riverside cabin in upstate New York to work on her novel, attracting the attention of a number of rowdy male locals. They catch Jennifer one day and strip her naked for the village idiot (Matthew) and rape her. Jennifer is later attacked and raped a further two times by the four degenerates, and her novel is also destroyed. But Jennifer recovers, and in her now-twisted, psychotic state, she begins to seek revenge on the men.Written by

The BBFC passed a cut version of this film as an 18 certificate in November 2001 after removing 7 minutes from the 3 rape scenes. An alternate version - re-framed by the distributors and featuring the rape scenes though in a more obscure and off-screen way - was submitted in 2003, though the BBFC cut 41 seconds from the 2nd 'rock' rape because much of the errant thrusting was still visible. The uncut version was resubmitted for DVD in 2010 and, although some previous cuts were waived, 2 mins 54 secs of cuts were again made to the rape scenes. See more »
Shocking and disturbing, if you are not repulsed by this movie then you may need to see a psychiatrist.
It's one of those films that was hyped up as a slasher movie when it was released in the US in 1978 (and subsequently banned in the UK until 2001) alongside the Halloween's and Friday the 13th's, but it is anything but.
A lone writer is mentally and physically raped and seeks revenge, there is no hero, there is only despair and pain, there is no happy ending, just hurt and repulsion.
The violence is never glorified it just shows the depths of human pain and despair.
