The writer Jennifer Hills rents an isolated lakeside cabin in the woods of the peaceful Mockingbird Trail for two months to write a novel. Two days later, she is brutally gang raped by three local bigots, the sheriff and a handyman. Jennifer returns later to revenge against the rapists.Written by

When Jennifer is freaked out by sounds in front of her cabin, she goes outside to look. When she comes back in, she locks the cabin door and starts walking towards the stairs/living room. The faint reflection of camera/crew can be seen in window in the background. See more »

Hi! I'm Jennifer Hills. We spoke last week.
Oh, yeah. Miss Hills; Mockingbird Trail, right?
That is right!

The UK cinema version was cut by 43 secs for an 18 certificate. These included 'softer' (ie zoom-in) shots during the rape scenes which cropped detailed footage of Jennifer's bare breasts and behind, as well as camcorder footage of Jennifer being forced to dance, closeups of her being forced to suck on a gun and a glass bottle, and a shot of her blouse being opened with a rifle barrel. DVD releases also feature the same cut print. See more »
In terms of the movie itself in terms f acting, storyline, etc, I thought it was good. I haven't seen the original others talk about though, so I don't have a comparison.
The disturbing part is the scenes that make up the story. The revenge scenes were full on! I found these more "disturbing" than the rape scene (and no, I'm not condoning rape at all!).
As I'm writing this, I'm trying to think of a revenge movie that is similar- Man on Fire comes to mind though it wasn't as graphic.
I'm definitely going to have to check out other Sarah Butler movies though. She played the part so well. I'd also be curious to read her thoughts on making the movie and whether it had any affect on her.....
