Good News: IFC Midnight Acquires Gritty Revenge-Horror Movie ‘Reversal’

Good news! IFC Midnight has picked up the brutal revenge thriller from director José Manuel Cravioto‘s “Reversal” after it screened at Sundance. We’ve read reviews that really hated it (Variety did not have even the hint of one positive thing to say about it) and others that enjoyed the ride (such as Big Shiny Robot, who said while the movie did have its flaws but called it “a hell of a ride) and many others recommended it to horror fans (well, those who can handle some pretty intense horror). Here’s a link to Film Threat’s positive review, for instance.

The movies starts out where plenty of similar movies often end: a woman in chains in the basement of a man who has kidnapped, tortured, and done God knows what else to her suddenly surprising her captor by vigorously beating the living shit out of him with a brick and coming out on top. However, she’s not going to kill him off completely, and she’s not calling 911. Instead of hastily taking off and getting as far away from him as she can, she is enraged enough to turn the tables on him and force him (using violence when she needs to) to give up the location of the other victims he has locked up. So yeah, we’re in.

Good to know the wait won’t be too long to see it. If only IFC Midnight had picked up the rights to Green Inferno…
