This is a Town I Will Never Visit
Naked Vengeance (1985)
Dir - Cirio H. Santiago
Following the utter insanity was our host for the marathon, Brian (@BTSjunkie). This is actually one of the rape/revenge flicks that was on my list to watch soon so it's nice to get that out of the way. Basically a woman's husband dies, she goes to stay with her parents in a town full of sexual deviants and gets gang raped and her parents are killed. Then comes the revenge, if you couldn't tell. It follows the I Spit on Your Grave model very closely (with a bit of a bigger budget) but, then again, I guess most films of this subgenre do. It's shocking how every man our poor woman encounters in this town tries to get her in the sack within a few minutes, as if they've never seen a female before. There are some pretty brutal moments in this film but they are well deserved.
Bonus Fun Fact: Deborah Tranelli, from the TV show Dallas stars as the victim and also sings the main pop-ballad that's played multiple times throughout the film - "Still Got a Love". I searched all over the interwebs to find a copy to put on the blog but couldn't find one. Sorry.
