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

Trivia

According to Michael Biehn, the person who inspired him to direct was Robert Rodriguez. While shooting Planet Terror (2007), Rodriguez told Biehn that he should've made a grindhouse movie himself. Biehn wasn't very sure about it, but promised himself he'd have done it one day. A few years later, while in Canada working on Xavier Gens' The Divide (2011), Biehn saw a guy in a restaurant reading Robert Rodriguez's book "Rebel Without a Crew". He remembered his promise and put things in motion to make this movie. See more »

User Reviews

The Victim was great escapism!!! Loved it!!!
25 July 2011 | by rfchevy1969See all my reviews

We were lucky enough to see this film at the Horror Fest in Louisville, Ky this past weekend and it was so much fun to watch. It certainly kept us entertained and how cool is it to watch a movie with the stars themselves right there with everyone. The movie was great and I recommend everyone who gets a chance and likes a good thriller with humor to see it!! I know I will buy it as soon as it is released. The cast was wonderful and I feel honored we were able to share the experience with so many fellow fans of the genre!! This movie was filmed in a very short time frame and rivaled some of the big budget movies playing now. I guess that makes Michael and his wonderful wife brilliant!!
