Product Overview

Often considered the lowest depth to which the cinema can plummet, the rape-revenge film has been dismissed as exploitative and sensational, catering to a demented demographic. Only on such rare occasions as Ingmar Bergman''s The Virgin Spring, John Boorman''s Deliverance and Quentin Tarantino''s Kill Bill has the rape-revenge movie transcended what is commonly assumed to be its intrinsically regressive nature.

This overview reassesses that viewpoint by exploring a variety of themes, as well as the elements that this type of film has in common. The author discusses many films by directors from several countries"--Provided by publisher.
