Somebody blow the freakin' whistle! Act of Vengeance (aka The Rape Squad) is a disturbingly creepy exploitation flick that for some reason got pounded into cinematic obscurity. Shameful! It's one of the earliest entries into the rape-revenge genre and desperately deserves to be recognized, like a registered sex offender. So you distributers need to spead em and take one for the sleaze team, this is too good to pass up.

It's the savage tale about Linda, a beautiful young woman who gets raped by a man in a hockey mask (Jason you copycat killer!). She joins a female group of rape victims as they all take steps to enact revenge on their perpetrator.

This movie starts off in extremely shocking fashion. Linda gets slapped around and sexually violated by this stranger in disguise, and to add insult to injury he forces her to sing Jingle Bells during the horrific act. Geez, talk about unnerving. This really forces the viewer to feel her pain and hopelessness. Afterwards when she goes to the police, their questioning is nearly as humiliating as the cops probably haven't taken a rape victim sensitivity class.

Acts of Violence is obviously a product of the 70's--it doesn't skimp out on the graphic violence or clothesless females. The acting doesn't always hit the spot, but what's a grindhouse flick without some overacting and a few annoying high-pitched screeches? Rhetorical dude. Throw in a heavy dose of misogyny, a little bit of comedy, plus a silly predictable climax, and you've got yourself a despicable winner, winner, chicken dinner.

ACT OF VENGEANCE (aka: RAPE SQUAD) opens w/ a woman named Linda being beaten and raped by a brutal, mask-wearing maniac. The perpetrator wears a goalie mask and a boiler suit (hmmm, sounds vaguely familiar). Linda's ordeal at police headquarters is humiliating and infuriating. Then, her idiot boyfriend proves just how little he understands or cares about the whole situation. Meanwhile, The rapist strikes again. He has an absurd habit of forcing his victims to sing Jingle Bells (!!) during the attacks. Eventually, Linda and four other victims are brought in to view possible suspects. While nothing comes of the line-up, Linda decides to take the opportunity to convince the others to form a rape squad. At first, it's just to get the word out and to advocate for victims. However, after running into opposition from the knuckle-dragging, slobbering male population, the squad turns to learning self defense techniques. Then, it's into the hot tub for a meeting. The problem w/ this movie is in its use of rape as a means of exploitation. The women are hot and perpetually vengeful, spending lots of time naked. Also, nearly every man in the film is a hyper-macho, Neanderthal jackass. The squad go out of their way to entice, entrap, and crush said cavemen. Then, it comes time for the women to bring the beat down, including great bodily injury and massive property damage. The squad also marks their targets w/ blue dye! The best part of the movie occurs when they unleash their karate on a local pimp. He's hilarious! Not very surprisingly, the goalie-mask guy returns. Now, he's on a mission of his own, and begins hunting down and killing his former victims. Can Linda and her cohorts survive long enough to introduce him to their brand of justice? AOV is an average 70s thriller meant for the drive-in crowd...

I had to do a report in school about women and rape and I wanted to get an old fashioned movie when I saw this movie the first time I was trying to figure out how I was going to order it so I went on Amazon and sound it for the price I got it for I'll definitely be shopping here again

I thought since this was an older movie that it would keep me interested. Well it did not. Too bad.

The story line was bad, bad acting and the video quality was bad (even for a 70's movie), Don't waste your time.

The picture quality is great and the acting is actually surprisingly good (from MOST of the actors) for such a old and low budget movie. Its not as over the top as most other films in this genre. This is still worth a look at if your a fan of these films

The first 30 minutes set up justification for the motivation of Rape Squad (a.k.a. Act Of Vengeance)... I know it's brutal, but Revenge is a dish best server with MOTIVATION...

Not worth the time or energy to watch. It's almost like there was no script. Ms. 45 is a better rape-vengeance movie.
