In theatres October 9th from director R.D. Braunstein and Anchor Bay Entertainment comes the next installment of terror with “I Spit on Your Grave 3: Vengeance is Mine.”
Jennifer Hills (Sarah Butler) is now calling herself Angela. Moving to another city and starting a new job where she meets Matthew (Russell Pitts), she joins a support group and hears the stories of those who have lost loved ones. She sits quietly until meeting Marla (Jennifer Landon) who doesn’t seem to have a problem pushing the crazies away. Not even therapist Lynn (Karen Strassman) can keep the madness at bay.
When she disappears, Angela snaps a tad and begins looking for those who have caused pain. Hot on her tail is Detective McDylan (Gabriel Hogan) who doesn’t want to believe that Angela could be so cruel. When fellow therapy group Oscar (Doug McKeon) takes the fall, Angela is conflicted.
As more and more bodies pile up, Angela is caught up between her flashbacks and those she sees as evil in front of her. Nothing is going to stop Angela from what she now feels is her mission to protect anyone who has been hurt by evil doers.
If the law won’t make them pay – she will!
Butler as Jennifer/Angela has once again laid down the law of anger. Trying to start over, she is constantly being mentally dragged back into the horrific events she lived through. There is a mixture of her wanting to get revenge and actually doing it – but that doesn’t last too long. Once her friend is killed, that seems to be the last mental straw before she sees taking matters into her own hands.
Butler gives this character not only a roller coaster ride of emotions to deal with but the reality of what she is actually doing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone give a straight faced performance with such scary and downright intense expressions. She is as bad as she wants to be, whether in her mind or reality. Oh yea, I’m afraid of her alright!
Pitts as Matthew just wants to be friends with Angela but not understanding her history I just kept yelling at the screen, ‘hey bro, you might want to just walk the other way!’ He’s sweet, but sweet can be deadly. Yes, I’ve been known to yell at the screen to try and save someone!
Hogan as Det. McDylan clearly wants to find the killer but there are so many twists and turns it makes his job more difficult. Knowing he has let Angela down by not finding Marla’s killer, he clearly feels more pressure to get on it. McKeon as Oscar is such a sad story and one more reason Angela’s anger is reaching the boiling point!
