| Watch 'Hard Candy' Instead
If you're looking for a revenge thriller revolving around the politics of sexual assault, do not watch this film.

It is wild that this is being marketed as a powerful film for victims who have been wronged by a lack of justice in the justice system, as after a certain point in the film it makes it very clear that it believes victims can only be of use by continuing to be victims.

To be fair, if all of the budget in marketing and the title of the film weren't clearly trying to make a 'statement' based on real world events, this would be a fine cheap horror film. However, if a film wants to be taken seriously as a piece of art and culture, it needs to rise to the occasion or be found wanting.
