Ravage (aka Swing Low) (2019, USA) Review

A welcome throwback to classic hixploitation. If you were a fan of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Mother’s Day and the golden days of R&R movies, Ravage will bring you a ton of warm and fuzzy memories. From the effective score to the absolutely beautiful photography, director Teddy Grennan elevates a rather familiar narrative far above its starkly crude subject matter. Despite a few gaps in logic and plot, this is one of the few modern horror films that treats its Grand Guignol aspects with subtlety.

“Torture is the barometer of a nation’s creativity.”
