    The Horseman
    A seemingly ordinary man turns to violence in this independent thriller from Australia. Christian Forteski (Peter Marshall) is a businessman whose teenage daughter Jesse (Hannah Levien) has been living on the edge since her parents divorced. Jesse runs away from home, and several weeks later Christian's anxiety about his missing daughter turns into rage when he receives a video in the mail of Jesse being brutally raped. Normally level headed, Christian jumps into his car and sets out to find whoever is responsible for making the video, starting with the people who mailed it to him. While heading north to Queensland, Christian picks up Alice (Caroline Marohasy), a teenage hitchhiker who reminds him a bit of Jesse. Christian and Alice strike up a friendship, and she begins to see the older man as someone she can trust, without knowing that Christian was turned into a deranged killing machine, leaving a trail of victims as he drives across the country to avenge his daughter. The Horseman was the first feature film from writer and director Steven Kastrissios; it was expanded from a short film by Kastrissios which was a prizewinner at the 2006 Queensland New Filmmaker Awards. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      An Unsung Masterpiece


      The Horseman absolutely blew me away After his daughter ends up dead The girl in questions father finds out she was involved in an adult film shoot where she was drugged and abused on set. What ensues next is one of the best revenge films I have ever seen. It is shot somewhat out of sequence,basically after he"Peter Marshall" gives a ride to a stranded girl near the same age as his deceased daughter ,she asks if he has any children.This takes him back to the beginning in a flashback and from there it goes from flashback to real time. It is brutal,bloody with teeth grinding ,edge of your seat suspense and action. I don't see it as a horror movie but a riveting bloody thriller. It starts off full speed ahead and never lets up.There was not one moment that I wasn't glued to the TV.Peter Marshall is incredibly believable ,powerful and brilliant as Christian the vengeful father on a mission.Since the death of his daughter he is reduced to a cutter,with the camera getting shots of him cutting on his arm and hands frequently which makes any pain he may receive along the way not as effective to him as it would someone that does not inflict intentional pain on themselves. I say buy it,you will definitely want to watch it more than once ,as well as have it in your collection. The last 20 minutes were some of the most tense moments I have ever seen on film.There's some Irony in the ending that is quite genius and effective. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would..

      Non-Stop, Hard Core Revenge


      After the first hour the movie could of ended because it is that good with daddy getting revenge on the slime for drugging, sexing and killing his daughter. By the second half of the movie you are so pumped up, you too want justice for all those wronged! The best REVENGE movie I have ever seen! I love it, yet I saw the unrated version, but cannot find it anywhere to purchase. I wonder if the violence is too extreme? for America.

      This is a great movie that went under the radar. I highly recommend this movie. Not as much action as you expect but still a great movie.
