Screamfest LA 2014 Review - Vengeance Themed 'Julia' Like Nothing You've Seen

Screamfest LA 2014 Review - Vengeance Themed 'Julia' Like Nothin
Victimized women seeking revenge is a controversial theme that movies have tackled quite badly of late. Either it’s done in a shameful pop culture style (the horribly executed “The Brave One”) or in a standard blood and guts approach (the slasher remake of “I Spit On Your Grave”), but most lack the respect of their subject matter to make any sort of deep impact. In a lot of cases what’s missing is not the originality in the vengeance area itself, but the emotional through line that hangs over a person who has been brutalized to the point of detachment. It is in this dark and less travell...
