While travelling across country, Zoe, a lovely deaf mute woman, stumbles on a horrific crime a gang of rednecks slaughtering two Native American boys. Zoes brave attempt to save one of the boys seals her fate, as she is captured, raped and left for dead. When an Indian shaman finds her clinging to life in a shallow grave he attempts to save her but something goes horribly wrong. The spirit of an ancient Apache warrior takes host of Zoes dead body. So now she walks amongst the living, hell-bent on getting revenge. One by one she slaughters the men who brutalized her, while the clock ticks away on her quickly decomposing body.
"Director Michael S. Ojeda takes one of the most incomprehensible plot lines I have ever heard of and spins it into one of the most brilliant and "bloody" heartfelt masterpieces I have ever been privy to witness on screen."
"AVENGED is a rare gem that seems to do everything right... No time is wasted and Michael Ojeda masterfully tells his story on a tiny budget, even though you could never tell watching it... With brilliant filmmaking and amazing performances, this film is destined to become a classic.
"Talk about a feast of vengeance... Satisfying and absolutely glorious... AVENGED delivers on all level... This rape revenge/Redsploitation hybrid is delerious fun that'll knock you on your ass."
