A seemingly ordinary man turns to violence in this independent thriller from Australia. Christian Forteski (Peter Marhall) is a businessman whose teenage daughter Jesse (Hannah Levien) has been living on the edge since her parents divorced. Jesse runs away from home, and several weeks later Christian's anxiety about his missing daughter turns into rage when he receives a video in the mail of Jesse being brutally raped. Normally level headed, Christian jumps into his car and sets out to find whoever is responsible for making the video, starting with the people who mailed it to him. While heading north to Queensland, Christian picks up Alice (Caroline Marohasy), a teenage hitchhiker who reminds him a bit of Jesse. Christian and Alice strike up a friendship, and she begins to see the older man as someone she can trust, without knowing that Christian was turned into a deranged killing machine, leaving a trail of victims as he drives across the country to avenge his daughter.

Intense! like the previous review said, you have seen this plot before (more recently in the Taken move with Liam Neeson) but you have NEVER seen any revenge plot produced with such intensity.
Every minute is pretty much gripping and heart wrenching and honest. Our main character isn't a Kung Fu, special ops, commando type guy but just your average Joe who is at first emotionally numb towards his daughter's recent death. As the movie goes on his anger and rage grows and eventually he gets revenge not with choreographed action sequences and Hollywood special effects but with an honest and graphic caveman-like violence. If anything the violence inflicted is very human and honest and up close. It connects you with the hero because in most scenes he is fighting not just for revenge but for his own life as he gets mixed up with the wrong people connected to the original people he is seeking. This is where the movie earns every star.
Very good stuff. Like I said it reminded me of Taken and even the hero father guy looks a lot and sounds a lot like Liam Neeson.
Actually I wouldn't at all be surprised to find out that Taken is a big blown up American Hollywood remake of this much better, tighter, and more gripping movie.

The Horseman absolutely blew me away I'm ordering it as I write this.
I caught it on Fios On Demand.
After his daughter ends up dead The girl in questions father finds out she was involved in a porno shoot where she was drugged and abused on set. What ensues next is one of the best revenge films I have ever seen.

It is shot somewhat out of sequence,basically after he(Peter Marshall) gives a ride to a stranded girl near the same age as his deceased daughter ,she asks if he has any children.This takes him back to the beginning in a flashback and from there it goes from flashback to real time.

It is brutal,bloody with teeth grinding ,edge of your seat suspense and action.
I don't see it as a horror movie but a riveting bloody thriller.
It starts off full speed ahead and never lets up.There was not one moment that I wasn't glued to the TV.Peter Marshall is incredibly believable ,powerful and brilliant as Christian the vengeful father on a mission.

Since the death of his daughter he is reduced to a cutter,with the camera getting shots of him cutting on his arm and hands frequently which makes any pain he may receive along the way not as effective to him as it would someone that does not inflict intentional pain on themselves.

I say buy it,you will definitely want to watch it more than once ,as well as have it in your collection. The last 20 minutes were some of the most tense moments I have ever seen on film.There's some Irony in the ending that is quite genius and effective. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would..

Format: DVD
The revenge film is a genre that is heavily populated, and yet few of its members ever really transcend to greatness. For every great revenge film ("Last House on the Left", "Kill Bill") there are at least ten that are silly, schlocky, or exploitive.

"The Horseman" doesn't aim to reinvent the revenge film drama, but elevate it. The very simple plot involves a father's quest to punish the men involved with a porn shoot that his troubled daughter was involved in, which either directly or indirectly led to her death. The father (Christian) visits each member of the seedy network of porn purveyors, ruthlessly determined to use any means necessary (violence, torture, threats) to find out who was directly involved, and punish them.

Peter Marshall gives a tour-de-force performance as Christian (the father) that makes the film succeed. When confronting the men who he believes were responsible for his daughter's death, he is merciless, mechanical, and unapologetically violent. But the actor's eyes reveal the character's truth - that Christian is a man in so much pain, that numbness and violence are his only choices. It's clear that Christian's anger, hatred, and thirst for vengeance are also his punishment to himself for failing his daughter as a father and protector. Underneath the gritty violence, Marshall shows the character's broken heart.

Although the bloody, ugly, violent business of revenge make up most of the film, a subplot where Christian befriends a troubled runaway add to Christian's humanity. And when his plot for revenge endangers the girl in the film's final act, it gives Christian's violent quest an urgency and opportunity for redemption.

Bravo.

Christian suffers the worst fate that any father could possibly imagine when the police inform him that his daughter has been found suffocated to death after being physically abused and pumped full of drugs. After receiving an anonymous package in the mail, Christian learns that his daughter had fallen into an underground pornography ring, and he immediately sets off to find his daughter's killers and make them pay! Steven Kastrissios' breakthrough Independent feature THE HORSEMAN is an abrasive thriller that follows one man's violent and bloody quest for revenge. Unlike so many other antiheroes, Christian is neither sly, stealthy, or self-assured. He frequently loses his composure and breaks down into quivering fits of rage, madness, and sorrow as he interrogates each of the men that he feels are responsible for his daughter's death. Peter Marshall is intimidating in the role, with a fiery intensity that explodes on screen. The young hitchhiker, Alice, that he picks up on the road serves as the only remaining link to his humanity, a surrogate daughter for him to protect in place of his own. Although the action beats can become repetitive as Christian uses the same methods of torture to extract information from his victims, the raw violence and gritty gore are painfully realistic. Kastrissios constantly forces the audience to question the morality behind Christian's vigilante justice, especially when each of the men involved in the sex tape claim that his daughter was already on drugs when she arrived and that she was a willing participant at all times. Blinded by rage, Christian willfully ignores the fact that his daughter may have been responsible for her own asphyxiation. With its tightly drawn tension and suspense, THE HORSEMAN stands out as one of the strongest action films to come out of Australia since the original MAD MAX!
