Back in September 2017, DecayMag reviewed Lou Simon’s psychological thriller, 3. Now the film finally gets its much-anticipated release on Video on Demand platforms with a slight name change. The film takes a raw look into the revenge theme that pays homage to the exploitative era of Horror cinema. Directed and written from a female perspective 3 takes a new modern look at a suppressed female protagonist evolving into a force to be reckoned with. Although themes of rape and objectification are toned the formula is impressive nonetheless.
3 delivers to the viewer a perspective of taking the law into one’s personal objective instead of relying on the law. Films conveying this plot transcends genres. Cinephiles can find many related narratives in action, Horror, and Thrillers. There is an interesting thought of an average person becoming a victim and transmogrifying into someone unhinged. For Horror, the protagonist of this film concept is usually women.
