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 complete and uncut version of this film was originally rated 'R' in Australia in July, 1982. It was released on the Palace Explosive Video label in 1984. A conservative classification board banned it in March, 1998. However, copies of the video are still easily available from many video stores across the country. Moreover, it was re-released on video in early 1998, just prior to its ban. This uncut re-release just added to the futility of banning the film, since hundreds of copies are still in existence around Australia. 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.
