In celebration of the publication of her brand new revenge thriller The Feud Gemma Rogers is here to share her top 5 revenge films!

  1. Falling Down

This movie is a classic from the nineties where the central character William, an ordinary man, is trying to see his daughter, has a breakdown and turns violent when things don’t go his way. It’s a great look at the problems within society and just how far people will go before they snap. Michael Douglas is fantastic, not to mention his flattop. For years I’ve been referring to my meltdowns as ‘having a Michael Douglas’.

  1. Promising Young Woman

I absolutely loved this genius movie about the lovely young Cassie, who is desperate to seek vengeance against the men who hurt her best friend Nina. Dressed to kill, Cassie frequents the local bars and nightclubs, pretending to be drunk, helpless and vulnerable when really is on the prowl for nocturnal predators just looking to take advantage. The ending left me thinking about it for weeks.

  1. The Crow 

Another nineties classic and this is my favourite film of ALL time, just about to get remake apparently. The Crow is about Eric Draven, who is brutally murdered and comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée’s murder. Born from a comic book it has a fantastic atmosphere as well as a great soundtrack and script. The film is notorious as Brandon Lee who played Eric was tragically shot and killed on-set half way through filming.

  1. Gone Girl

This movie is insane, with a twist half way through that still blows my mind. Adapted for the big screen from Gillian Flynn’s popular thriller, Amy Dunne goes missing leaving her unfaithful husband to take the rap for what looks to be her murder. Both leads are fantastic, with Rosamund Pike chilling to the core. The story takes you on a wild goose ride where you have no idea who is really the victim. A must see!

  1. The Other Woman

A great comedy based on a mutual revenge plot. After discovering her boyfriend is married, Carly soon meets the wife he’s been betraying. And when yet another love affair is discovered, all three women team up to plot revenge on the three-timing. This movie is great fun with lots of female comradery.
