Revenge is defined as, “Harm done to another person in return for harm which he has done (to oneself or to someone else).” There’s no better example of revenge than in the world of cinema where all bets are off when it comes to getting some of that good ol’ payback. Here are 10 GIFs from some of the most epic revenge films of all time and the lessons that we learn.
Never lock up a man in a hotel room for 15 years, let him out and not give him the reason why. He’ll beat your ass in a hallway with a knife sticking out of his back. Now that’s dedication.
Massacring a wedding party, shooting the bride in the head and stealing her child will get your eyeball snatched out of your head.
‘Last House On The Left’
If you kill someone’s daughter, don’t be dumb enough to go to the parents’ house while wearing a piece of the slain child’s jewelry. It might get you f-ed up.
Dude, it’s Liam Neeson. Don’t touch anything that belongs to him. Especially his daughter. He will find you and kill you. Just give it back. Okay?
The true definition of one-man army. You see, kidnapping the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger will get your entire army destroyed. As for the GIF above? Reminds us of the hook of a certain Goodie Mob song.
If you betray Russell Crowe, murder his father, send him into slavery and give an epic thumbs down, expect to be destroyed for the sheer level of disrespect.
If you kill Charles Bronson’s wife and sexually assault his daughter, expect him to exact revenge with big-ass guns for five movies and 20 years.
‘I Spit On Your Grave’
If you gang rape a crazy woman, you might just get strangled, caught in a bear trap, have your eyes held open with fish hooks, get your teeth pulled out with pliers and, worst of all, have your pee pee chopped off and fed to you.
Fooling a social outcast with psychic powers that she’s a prom queen and then dumping pig’s blood on her might get you and your entire school killed. Oh yeah, mothers, don’t stab that daughter — who just annihilated an entire high school — in the back. She’ll fill your body up with kitchen knives.
This is a no-brainer. Sexual predators, kill yourselves.
