Savaged, 2013 – ★★★★★

This revenge thriller has to be a 10. I was skeptical at first thinking I had here a variant of “I Spit on Your Grave.” Fortunately I was overjoyed to see this original take on that subgenre.

It tricks you by looking cheap in the intro. Soon thereafter there are powerful practical effects and a story that gets more creative by the half-hour. I was thoroughly satisfied with this film. 

At times it reminded me of “Darkman” in the way the protagonist dealt with his macabre transformation. Watch this!!!
