The “rape-revenge” genre has seen a resurgence as of late due to several remakes of old 70’s grindhouse films. I Spit on Your Grave and Thriller: A Cruel Picture might be two of the more notorious 70’s titles that helped popularize the genre, but there were a lot more besides those that featured revenge fueled women giving men their own form of justice (I would also suggest Ms. 45 and the forgotten 1974 film Act of Vengeance aka Rape Squad). So, even though Girls Against Boys might be loosely inspired by some of these sleazy films from back in the day, this original feature looks to bring something fresh to a genre which recently only saw older films being remade rather than anything new. Ahhh. . . the sweet smell of revenge. I honestly really dig this trailer, and I hope you guys do as well. It premiered at SXSW last year and continued to garner positive buzz until Anchor Bay picked it up. Girls Against Boys will be getting a limited theatrical release on Feb. 1. Check out the trailer below.
When Shae (Danielle Panabaker), a naive college student, is tormented by several men in a matter of days, she reaches her breaking point, and is drawn into coworker Lu’s (Nicole LaLiberte) twisted plan for revenge. Together, the two embark on a gruesome killing spree, terrorizing and brutally murdering not just their attackers, but any man who gets in their way. However, after a wild weekend of retaliation, the friendship between the girls shifts into a dangerous obsession, and their perverse game becomes a desperate struggle for Shae to maintain control against Lu’s deadly and seductive influence.
