This Movie Has ZERO Relation to Repulsion
18 July 2020 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

This is a rape revenge movie not a psychological thriller. glenmatisse who compared this to Repulsion is a simpleton.

The film is far more like I Spit on your Grave, only no where near as good. The lead female rape victim is the worst actress on the planet Earth. Great body but horrible actress. She should have gotten Harry to introduce her to the porn industry. It was hard to sit through large parts of the movie because the acting was so bad.

It's really too bad because this could have been a good flick with the right cast.
