Attacking with sadistic symmetry, this remake of the canonical 1978 rape-revenge nasty starts with city girl Jennifer (a fearless Sarah Butler) renting a cabin in backwoods Louisiana to work on her second novel.
After the brutal realism of our heroine’s gang rape by redneck locals, director Steven R Monroe gleefully switches to Saw-style torture porn (fishhooks, hungry crows, chemicals, garden shears) for the vengeful return of Jennifer’s ruined body.
The tonal turnabout jars, but it’s a more effective re-do of an iconic horror than many recent efforts.
