TOP TEN REVENGE MOVIES
1: THE HORSEMAN
After receiving a porn movie in the post that stars his recently deceased daughter. The tape shows her heavily intoxicated or medicated and obviously not taking part in this film of her own free will.
The father sets out to track down and kill those responsible for the tape and to find out the truth about his daughter’s death.
A fantastic low budget revenge movie from Australia, with a phenomenal and very believable performance from Peter Marshall.
Years after escaping from her kidnappers. a young girl along with her friend (who she grew up with in an orphanage and also suffered abuse) set out to kill her captors that once subdued her to unbelievable and unimaginable torture.
This film is not just a brilliant revenge movie but an astounding horror that takes you into a world never before seen on screen.
So, what I am saying is that this film does its job as a horror film, it’s got very mature and graphic content and is primarily for an audience who like their films extreme.
3: I SAW THE DEVIL
After his wife is brutally killed by a deranged serial killer. A special agent sets out to find and catch the killer.
One of the best films you could ever hope to see. This film does not stop, from the very first scene right to when the credits roll. A superior violent and action-packed revenge/serial killer film from South Korea.
4: I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE (original)
One of the very first extreme movies that follows a woman who takes revenge on the group of hillbillies that gang-raped her.
This film is very graphic and has some really shocking scenes. A really disturbing, but completely justifiable act of vengeance.
Another classic to come out of Korea. The story of a man who was held captive for 15 years without any reason, is set free and given a certain amount of time to figure out who and why he was imprisoned and to seek revenge on those responsible.
This film has gone down in film history not only as a great revenge film but it has earned its place as one of the finest films ever made.
American remake already made. I can’t find any footage of it anywhere but I know that it’s directed by Spike Lee and stars Josh Brolin, Samuel L Jackson and also Elizabeth Olsen.
6: 7 DAYS
This is a French/Canadian torture flick with a strong believable plot and great actors. The story of a doctor who’s kid is sexually assaulted and murdered.
The killer is caught straight away and not happy with the sentence he was given the doctor hires people to break him out of custody and takes him to a remote location and chains him up and goes to town on him for 7 DAYS.
Although there is serious violence inflicted on this guy, you are constantly thinking he deserves every bit he gets.
8: RED, WHITE & BLUE
A real slow burning and extremely tense psychological thriller. The film follows 3 characters, “Erica” who’s is a young nymphomaniac that will fuck just about everything with a heartbeat. Then we have young “frank” a washed-up rock musician still trying to make it big with his band in his garage, and then we have “Nate”, the strange war veteran neighbour who lives in the same building as “Erica”. He sees Erica as a troubled soul and just wants to help.
This film has a lot of nudity and sex, and it ain’t any classy sex you would see in a big Hollywood movie. The sex is dirty and sleazy and very hard to watch on screen ( unless you are a dirty sleaze then you will be fine) but thankfully it’s only at the start of the movie and its just to establish how fucked up “Erica” is, and it sets the mood for the film pretty quick. Once the film gets going and if this is all you know about the storyline then I urge you to hunt it out and check out what happens next as it has to be seen to be believed. Please try and stay away from reviews of this film as a lot of them would give away certain parts of the story that I found absolutely necessary to be viewed by complete surprise.
The acting is fantastic throughout especially from Nate, played by English actor Noah Taylor. The film is superbly made and shot on a tiny budget by English director Simon Rumley.
A film that would be suited for fans who like their stuff very dark and very disturbing.
Accompanied by a disturbing score that just sounds like some dude hitting random notes on a piano; this alone will mess with your head just as much as the story.
One of the most graphic and violent films to ever be released. A film that is so disturbing in every way that you will probably need to go out for some air after watching it.
The film follows the boyfriend of a beautiful woman who was violently raped in the Paris suburbs. His hunt for the rapist leads him and his friend into a dark and sleazy underground.
This film like most of the others in my top ten list has some of the most disturbing scenes you could ever imagine.
Not for the faint-hearted, a breakthrough and fantastic, original piece of cinema, with a
powerhouse performance from Vincent Cassel.
10: MAN FROM NOWHERE
This film is very straightforward. A guy who owns a local pawnshop befriends his next door neighbour who happens to be an 8-year-old girl.
He goes through each day not saying a word and ignoring every attempt that the little girl makes to try and get him to talk.
When she is kidnapped by a group of men who wanna harvest her organs, he takes on the whole crime syndicate by himself, leaving countless amounts of corpses along the way.
I thought this film was unreal. I am not a huge fan of action movies, but this movie reminded me of Leon and to top it all off, its Korean, and it kicks serious ass.
