2. Revenge

Buckle up and take a good stiff drink before watching this Shudder Exclusive. It’s a bumpy, bloody, action-packed ride, and it’s not for the weak of heart (or stomach…did we mention it’s bloody?).

Beautiful Jen and married boyfriend Richard take a helicopter to his home in the desert for a little weekend getaway before Richard goes on a hunting trip with his two friends. The two friends show up early, however, and they all party by the pool that evening.

The next morning, while Richard is out on an errand, one of his friends rapes Jen, and when her boyfriend returns, he tries to buy her off so she won’t report it. Jen runs off, the men pursue her, and things escalate to the point where she is left for dead.

Unluckily for the men, Jen’s not dead, just seriously injured and very, very pissed. When the three men return for her body, they are surprised to find it missing, and they set out to find her.

Jen’s transformation is a sight to behold, she goes from vapid Barbie doll to relentless, revenge-seeking warrior, her hair so saturated with blood that it’s not even blond anymore. It probably goes without saying that not all of the characters make it out alive, and you should be prepared to see some graphic violence and lots of gore along the way.
