Plot – Spoilers:
A father has lost his mind after his daughter turned up dead with signs of sexual assault and drugs on her. He mysteriously receives a porn tape starring his daughter in the mail – the flick appears to have been made shortly before her death. When he recovers from the disgust at seeing her in some rough action, he decides it’s appropriate to track the porn-makers down. Along the way, he gets to indulge his fatherly instincts once more when he encounters a young runaway.

Horseman features some brutal violence without descending into a gorefest. Old man Finn at the gym is a favorite for its comedic violence.

    I felt like the movie was done rather well. It’s Taken meets Last House on the Left. Some things I would’ve added to it but overall it was worth the watch.

    There was no gore, but I agree still worth a watch. There were very cool fight scenes.

    As always, thanks a ton for keeping them new films coming, admins!

    Decent film. Gritty fighting-violence, some suspenseful scenes, good pacing, but u basically knew a few minutes into it how it was prbly gonna end the way u thought, er, the stereotypical generic way it did.

    Extremly one-dimensional plot, zero-dimensional characters, the (very) few bits of dialogue when they weren’t fighting was ok I guess, etc. I’d give it a 5/10. Still a fun watch tho. BTW, If u want a badass ‘deeper’ revenge flick, check out Dead Man’s Shoes, which is also on this excellent site as well

    I never heard of this Australian film until I saw it on effedup. It caught me by surprise. Christian, the main character, nailed the role. He truly felt like that girls father. I could feel his pain and loneliness through the screen. The fight scenes were great and, good choreography. They werent too gorey, they had a realistic feel to them. There’s still plenty of brutal violence for us effedup fans. The focus was on the revenge tale instead of blood and gore. There wasn’t a dull moment, this was a solid watch all the way through. An effedup gem. Definetly check this out

      Normally astralian movies are sock but every now and then a very good emotional one pops up. Check out “The Dry” 2020 movie. Its not effed up but a nice crime mystery movie.
