#1315 Naked Vengeance (1985)

Deborah Tranelli – Apparently known the pain most due to her role in the Dallas TV series – gets mishandled first by a crook that kills her husband and then by the womanising and chauvinistic pack of hoodlums in her hometown, after which she releases her wrathful vengeance on all of them.

Naked Vengeance repeats the familiar rape and revenge formula popularised by I Spit on Your Grave on 1978 and joins ranks with movies like Ms .45, Extremeties and The Ladies Club.

The protagonist’s transformation to a cold blooded killer that plans and executes imaginative kills on her wrongdoers is highly inplausible – she could’ve much more easily just shoot them all one by one – but I did like the way she always did not succeed in her plans so easily, and actually ended up in a tight spot, hunted by the townsfolk.
