Currently playing at Sundance, Coralie Fargeat’s human-hunting horror Revenge has been picked up for theatrical distribution by NEON.
The film stars Rings’ Matilda Lutz and Kevin Janssens, and marks the feature debut for director Fargeat, who also wrote the script.
Three wealthy, middle-aged CEOs – all married family men – get together for their annual hunting game in a desert canyon. It’s a way for them to let off steam and affirm their manhood with guns. But this time, one of them has come along with his young mistress, a sexy Lolita who quickly arouses the interest of the two others… Things get out of hand… Left for dead in the middle of this arid hell, the young woman comes back to life, and the hunting game turns into a ruthless manhunt.
NEON will market and distribute Revenge theatrically, in advance of its streaming premiere later this year on Shudder.
