will brad get revenge for his ear?
It should have had another name but i liked spit on your grave 2, the rape part served its purpose and, even more than most of these, i was so damn happy watching the revenge part.
you got a funky looking ad on the homepage, i was just making a shitty joke about it.
Yup, I saw that too! ....A big white square ad that just reads: " I jerked off in Brad's Ear".
I thought I was just out of the loop for some site gag.... or needed stronger meds ;)
Not gonna lie, It made me click the ad
Me too. Damn you LordKat.
Nothing will top I Spit on Your Grave in this noble and proud genre.
one of the best rape/revenge films I've ever seen was this Danish language animated movie called Princess.
if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.
I'm glad Alex brought up Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion, it's one of my favourites too. It takes a very basic women-in-prison, rape/revenge scenario and makes a really great, intense movie out of it. Shunya Ito's direction is inspired, and Meiko Kaji is just fucking awesome. She's one of the ultimate silent badasses.
I disagree with Alex on Jailhouse 41 though, I think that's the best of the series. The first one had the occasional surreal, artsy bit, the second turns that shit up to eleven. Far as I'm concerned it's pretty much the coolest thing ever, but obviously your mileage may vary. It's worth checking out, anyway, as is the third one, Beast Stable, which goes in a different direction again. (I wouldn't recommend any of the later sequels/reboots though.)
Also, I think the term "Pinky Violence" suggests more of a connection to Pinku then there really is. Pinky Violence movies (or most of them, depending on where you draw the lines) have sex and torture in them, yeah, but they're made like regular genre movies of that era. They basically work and feel like yakuza or samurai flicks or whatever. Pinku is a different type of thing entirely.
Female Prisoner #701 is one of my all-time favorites.
It was the surreal stuff in Jailhouse 41 that turned me off on it. The shades of it fit with the first movie but turned up to 11 I wasn't digging it. I have the other sequels but haven't bothered to watch them yet.
Pinky Violence IS pinku by definition only. They still have the same qualities as the rest just different topics. While Nikkatusu focusd on making contemporary or historical stories that had lots of sex - Toei made exploitation films in the pinku style.
Well I've been spending way too much time on TGWTG. I thought that was Lupa in the thumb to this.
I'm surprised you didn't mention Titus Andronicus. The Shakespearian rape/revenge story.
Nope, not even rape can make their voices any less sexy.
Speaking of which, Bible Black was the one that made me say to myself "...why am I even WATCHING this shit??" and that was the end of THAT little phase. Now, I'll just stick to Robert Crumb when it comes to highly sexual art that I have difficulty actually finding arousing. Ah, 60s & 70s underground comics; the best thing that repressed 1950s America gave us!
that was great and i specially love that it ended with Nirvana's Rape Me
i made a music video with that song using footage of 90s horror movies.
here's a link:
Somehow i have a feeling that most of feminist get the idea that all men rape after watching some of the rape/revenge films..And they get far too much of a pleasure of getting to see men killed,though they usually are scum of the earth/Rednecks/etc who do Deserve getting their dicks chopped off.
Or it could be the fact that around 1 in 5 women are sexually assaulted in their life times and 97% of rapists never see a day in jail. That might make them a little testy.
I don’t think I Spit on Your Grave is necessarily a sexist film. I do think there are certain frames of her being naked that are…a little off given the subject matter but overall I certainly don’t think the audience is meant to sexualize the heroine after that sequence. I’d be curious to know if any survivors had any input on the film because I feel like their feelings being articulated through the film would be better than someone well-intentioned saying “Rape is wrong." I recommend checking out Carol J. Clover’s book “Men, Women, and Chainsaws” which has a chapter on the film that basically boils down to “this films tries to empower women” and I agree with that. However I disagree with the idea that this genre is automatically empowering to women or that feminists are somehow crazy for trying to open a discussion about it. The vast majority of these films are written and directed by men who are not survivors of sexual assault and are unlikely to experience to experience it first hand. I think some of these filmmakers were well-intended and did try to empower women, but that doesn't mean that they succeed or understand what women find empowering in the first place. I think a group of men dismissing their concerns about films made about women getting raped shot and written from a male point of view is tactless at best.
Wait, "Rapeman" is real? I thought it was something Law and Order SVU made up for an episode. I mean, I guess I shouldn't be too surprised "It's Japan" and all, but... damn.
This was better than I thought, but you pretty much lost me with the Hard Candy critique. How dare Ellen Page's character humiliate the underage girl fan and SPOILERS child killer. Shotgun killings are one thing, but sarcasm and pretend castration? How dare she! She didn't even have the courtesy to be raped first.
Um....did you seriously think that's what my problem with her was? That is completely not the point I was making at all. No where in my critique of that movie did I say I hated her because she was humiliating and torturing a child killer. I didn't like her because I found her to be completely obnoxious in her personality, which had nothing to do with her getting revenge. Every piece of line delivery she gave I found grating and annoying; she acted more like a brat than someone out for revenge or humiliation.
