Bad Reputation ★★★ 2005 (R)

Chillingly disturbing portrayal of victim's revenge. Michelle, though poor, attends an affluent school on scholarship. She chooses to keep buried in a book rather than mix with the shallow class populous. One night at a party, she is drugged and gang-raped. A metamorphosis follows, as the shy, smart, attractive girl becomes an avenging assassin, swiftly wiping out all who humiliated her. Excellent character development, smart script, and bright directing make for a very satisfying retaliation tale. 90m/C DVD . Angelique Hennessy, Jerad Anderson, Danielle Noble, Mark Kunzman, Kristina Conzen; D: Jim Hemphill; W: Jim Hemphill; C: Forrest Allison; M: John LeBec, Eric Choronzy. VIDEO
