Years of prostitution and drug abuse have wrecked Kat's (Lissa Brennan) life. She has settled into a stagnant relationship with her junkie boyfriend Dolph (Michael Todd Schneider), and the only 'decent' friend she has, Marilyn (Paula Bellin), also happens to be a high class call-girl. When Kat discovers that she is pregnant, she manipulates Dolph into taking part in a reckless heist that she hopes will score the money she needs to turn her life around. When things inevitably spiral out of control, and she is confronted by a drug dealing pimp known as Mutton Chop (Douglass Bell). Hellbent on vengeance, the sadistic pimp retaliates by ordering a brutal attack against Kat that will change her life forever. Seven years later, Kat is on the road to recovery... But when another tragic event triggers memories of her devastating past, she lashes out against the opposite sex... Ultimately following a path of vengeance against the men responsible for turning her life upside-down.

Official Synopsis


http://youtu.be/tB6CtLP83Jw (http://youtu.be/tB6CtLP83Jw)


Revenge Is Her Middle Name is the feature length directorial debut of actor, product assistant Anthony Matthews. Prior to his first film Anthony had worked on a number of Toe Tag films; The Redsin Tower (2006), AU Penance (2007), Murder Collection Vol. 1 (2009) and Maskhead (2009).

Two very well known modern pioneers are on the team for Revenge Is Her Middle Name! They are Jeremi Cruise, who is on the special make-up effects team along with Autumn Cook as well as playing a small role in the film as well. Michael Todd Schneider is the other; he edited the film along with that plays one of the major roles. Michael mentioned to me quite a while back he put a lot of research into his role including putting on a lot of weight.

~ Splat's Experience with The Trailer ~


"Blood and semen will spray in a frenzy of revenge"


EHC's Revenge Is Her Middle Name thread has existed for quite a while now and we even had its director Anthony Matthews join up to answer questions in it. So once I saw that the Unearthed Films trailer was up this heralded great news with the release in the near future and for myself and others who need to experience this a chance to do so.

I knew this was going to be an amazing movie from the original teaser trailers along with the sneak peek up above; rape and revenge films are awesome to me, especially when they don't candy around!

Our drug addicted couple find out they are going to have a baby thus need money. Naturally the easiest way is to rob somebody they think has much cash…and drugs….in supply so rob the local pimp they know. Things go bad and the tables are turned; the man gets killed and the woman is raped and I assume left for dead. This then calls for much bloodshed and mayhem of the most violent revenge from her as she goes gunning and torturing those who who murdered her man and did terrible things to her!

Holy bloodshed Splatman; as stated I knew this was going to be amazing from my prior experiences but I didn't realise how bloody this Revenge will be and how well done! WOW! Just everything in this is perfect to me and needs love from everyone here at EHC. Quite possibly one of the best films for 2015 if not the best!

I was very proud to be part of the Canadian Premier for this piece of exploitation gold! Although I was not directly involved with the film (I threw in a couple hundred bucks to help out with the fx budget) I was blown away when I saw the early cut! Anthony has set forth 2 screenings in the States if anyone is near by.

Arkham Film Society will screen the film at:
AS220 Black Box Theater, 95 Empire Street, Providence, Rhode Island
15 June at 20:00

Days Of The Dead Indianapolis
Reel Horror Film Festival
July 5
11.59pm in the Golden Ballroom
Q&A with Director Anthony Matthews following the film!

It's a kickass flick! I saw it in the theaters twice! Both times in Pittsburgh (once at the Oak's Theater in Oakmont, then at the Hollywood Theater in Dormont)! It's the ultimate treat for exploitation and extreme cinema fans! Can't wait for the DVD release.

Going by a brief chat with Michael magGot I believe this will get a release early in the new year...2014 is going to be insane for great DVD releases I suspect!

Nothing like a forum.. I miss these they do seem more social than the facebook and the like where you can actually learn shit from others and have a voice. Just a short note. I am not here to plug or shill but I am Anthony the  writer / director of 'Revenge" and thought i would pop out of the wood work as there seems to be some people interested in my film. With your permission of course I would like to open the door for any questions people may have..

Looks great. I love the look of Mutton Chop 'who do you think you're talking to - Kunta Kinte?!' LOL

Post by: splat on October 06, 2013, 07:10:51 PM
I am soooo excited about seeing Revenge Is Her Middle Name so man talk your movie up....it's going to be mind blowingly AWESOME!!!

Was chatting to Michael magGot and he told me was the first time he put a tonne of research into his role.

Fuck, what am I doing, welcome to EHC Mutton-Chop.

As for forums I happen to agree, we better chance of learning a thing or two and have a proper chat. But hell...come plug the fuck out of this movie, what I was hoping for  8)
Title: Re: Revenge Is Her Middle Name (2013)
Post by: JackT on October 06, 2013, 07:26:21 PM
I agree. Plug away. It's fun for the rest of us.

Totally irrelevant question, where did you find Mutton Chops' pimp fur coat? Looks totally awesome. I dont wear fur (not cold enough in the country where I am) but absolutely love the look of that on such a big strapping lad.
Title: Re: Revenge Is Her Middle Name (2013)
Post by: splat on October 06, 2013, 07:31:03 PM
I am super mad keen for the release of this, any idea of when it will happen?

I gave a shot out on Facebook about you joining and a link to this thread by the way...I am just excited you joined as I stated this is a movie I am really keen to see.
Title: Re: Revenge Is Her Middle Name (2013)
Post by: Mutton-Chop on October 07, 2013, 06:50:03 PM
Indeed Michael did do some research.. It was funny how everything with him fell into place but I knew he was going to be able to sell it... As time went on he stepped forward and helped out on production and has been editing it and doing a great job.

As for release date I'm not 100% sure. I do want it released as soon a possible. The movie itself is pretty much done with an approved edit and finalization of credits is being done at present. Its all the other footage etc for the release is the time consuming part right now. I have so much stuff for the DVD its quite overwhelming. I'm not going to lie and say i wish it wasn't out sooner but we had so much going on with other things I would have rather taken my time for a good release then just throw it out how it was and bare bones.

Ahh the fur.. It was something Aziza had I think it was her grandmothers?? I still have that thing here and wear it once in a while to attract more ho's for my stable LOL

Interesting bit of info Dougie who played Mutton Chop has been a friend of mine long before we made Revenge and is a stage actor. I always thought he had a great look for a Pimp so I actually wrote the character for him. Well anyways about half way through shooting the film he was taking about how many years ago he had acted on a low budget horror film and said it was called "Video Dead" I never knew it until that day and i had known him for a few years but yes he is one of the delivery drivers! Kinda crazy huh?
Title: Re: Revenge Is Her Middle Name (2013)
Post by: JackT on October 07, 2013, 06:56:23 PM
LOL. Does it work or do you just attract the PETA nutjobs?

Yeah he's got a great look. Very handsome fellow with a big stage presence. (I'm female by the way. Just thought I needed to say that because my avatar says otherwise LOL).
Title: Re: Revenge Is Her Middle Name (2013)
Post by: Mutton-Chop on October 07, 2013, 09:19:28 PM
Yes he does have a wonderful look and presence alright. And in regards to the lovely fur just like sex panther  60% of the time it works every time!
Title: Re: Revenge Is Her Middle Name (2013)
Post by: JackT on October 07, 2013, 09:21:48 PM
LOL. You're awesome. What happens the other 40% of the time?
Title: Re: Revenge Is Her Middle Name (2013)
Post by: splat on October 07, 2013, 10:43:23 PM
Wow how cool is this : )

Yeah I reckon take your time and just have an amazing final package for people to seriously dig...though they gonna dig the film anyway naturally as going by the trailer it is AWESOME! As for Michael I feel he takes what he does seriously though he has a tonne of fun in the process. I have to agree with Gore-met that Michael has a bright future ahead of him as both a film maker as well as actor and everything else he does.

LOL. You're awesome. What happens the other 40% of the time?

Normally a kick in the nuts and called a pervert unfortunately..

Well Im glad you have excitement regarding the film Splat. It has been a long road. All I can say is I hope people enjoy it and be entertained in some way. I honestly havn't really heard anything negative. I dunno if that is a good sign or not.

From my understanding the goremet loved the film. He actually screened it at the festival of fear which is great.  The version he screened and saw is not this new version Michael and I worked on.. This cut is so much more leaner and meaner. I'm very proud of it. But all of us worked so hard on it and we had an amazing cast and crew.. The odds were really against us in some ways.

Although not 100% set in stone so some of this may or may not appear in the special features but here is what i am hoping to put in it..

Audio Commentry
Trailers
Deleted and Extended Scenes.. ( Including a never before seen subplot and death that was completely removed)
World Premiere Screening Footage
Interviews
Audition Footage
Behind The Scenes Footage
"The Night Stinger" Unseen Short film That morphed into "Revenge"
Liner Notes

Check out these awesome quotes off Facebook  :yes:

Michael MagGot
Quote
Michael MagGot The brand new masters were handed over for the final stages of dvd authoring, this week. We debugged some things that were hanging things up technically. The light is near...

Anthony Matthews
Quote
As Michael has noted it has been a rough ride from the technical aspect but somehow we pulled it off and got an approved and much more polished film out of it. It is leaner and meaner and pretty much the best I could hope for and happy to release. Quite different in some ways to the version that has been screened.. While this has been going on we have been rounding out all the special features which has been a huge undertaking. Audition footage, Deleted scenes including a whole sub plot and graphic murder that nobody has seen, Outakes & Extended Scenes, Premiere Footage, Interviews, The Original Short film that I made that "Revenge" morphed to. Introductions, FX features,Liner Notes and photo galleries, All have almost been compiled.. For an indie film I wanted to raise the bar...

magGot put a LOT into his role here. He mentioned to me doing a tonne of research along with putting on 20 lbs to play his role of the drug addict boyfriend of the lead character.

Will have to state this is a must have! For those who haven't already,  go check out the trailer and you will see why!

Post by: splat on April 30, 2015, 08:04:53 PM
Yup, magGot played one of the main characters as well edited the film. I know he took quite a while doing this to do the most worthy job possible. A lot has gone into this film. So fucking excited it is almost here.

Interestingly enough Anthony Matthews is a New Zealand ex-pat. I guess I bring this up as I think it is awesome for someone to come from down this way, go to the States, and work with guys like Michael.

Post by: Mutton-Chop on September 10, 2015, 12:48:22 AM
I just wanted to come straight to the source of it all the forums and post a big thank you all for the support of my little film. Splat has been plugging this film for quite some time and I hope the wait was worth it for those who managed to see it. Its early days and I hope it finds it audience. In my eyes its something a little different than what most indie folks are doing. The responses from what I have seen as  it is in its early days has been pretty good. I'm sure there will be people who don't like it but you cant win them all as everybody has different tastes. All I can hope is that it is somewhat of a success so I can move onto the next movie that I want to do.

Thank you again everybody for the love it really is appreciated

Anthony

I cant wait to review. I love to hear what people have to say good or bad. Be good to see you at the Underground Festival too. It looks like it will be fun. I was talking to Michael about it tonight he seems pretty pumped too. Autumn who helped Cruise with Revenge and did FX on Manna will be there and as of writing a good chunk of the cast will be there which is very rare

Re watched last night and hell was even better this time around! Beginning is a dismal ride into the lives of two drug fucks! Then all slides down into a deeper hole before Cat's fucked up dark MS.45 side comes out. Love the Dead End...want go any farther than that ; )

Casting is perfect along talent such as magGot, Jerami Cruise etc etc behind the scenes!

Pardon any spelling, am at work.

Post by: Mutton-Chop on April 15, 2017, 01:02:44 AM
Thank you again Splat! The whole first movie thing has been kinda strange to be honest. I honestly unsure what to expect response wise. Some have enjoyed it for what it is and one person at a certain website tore it to shreds saying it was incompetent. I will be the first to admit its not flawless but that is part of the genre to be honest. I never looked at films like Dolemite for example and judge it on the editing etc. I kinda wish it would have done better and it sort of disappeared and i never heard much feedback about it. I will still stand by Revenge and am proud of what we made with such a limited budget it was a miracle to be honest.

Here is a little taste of "Revenge" that didn't make the film or deleted scenes on the DVD and remains in the vault a subplot that involved  Kat and a gun dealer... It was about an extra 20 mins of movie. 
Title: Re: Revenge Is Her Middle Name (2015)
Post by: splat on April 16, 2017, 09:22:36 AM
Great looking stills...THANKS!

Unsure what people go into some of these films to be honest. Also unsure by what they mean by incompetent. In the end though Biro felt it was good enough to be part of the Unearthed Films catalogue so I feel that says a lot!

Felt the beginning was perfect...a downward spiral into drug induced damnation. Then the  slaughter of the men along with who I shall call dog boy! MS.45 came to mind though obviously it is a bit different to that.
