By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on July 17 2015
Format: Blu-ray
Two women of low moral fiber Mary (Danielle Harris) and Annie (Jennifer Blanc-Biehn) go out on a date in the woods with two police officers Jim (Ryan Honey) and Cooger (Denny Kirkwood). Mary (Danielle Harris) is killed during sex by Jim (Ryan Honey) semi-accidentally. The cops decide to kill Annie, who has overheard the conversation and escapes to a cabin occupied by Kyle (Michael Biehn, her real life husband), a man who seemingly has deeper issues than the movie lets on.

The production moves into the abduction phase and uses flashbacks to build the girl's character. The questionable aspect as to the identity of the main character i.e. being a possible serial killer is hinted at, but never fully developed to where the audience knows with certainty. We are left with doubt as is Annie.

I liked the soundtrack and background music used in the film. They didn't go cheap. When two girls listen to music that sounds like Katy Perry, you know they put out. The character of Kyle was too underdeveloped or under utilized, perhaps Michael was wanting to give more of the story to his wife and not turn this into an ego fest.

PARENTAL GUIDE: f-bomb, sex, nudity (Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, the blond from "The Divide").

HASH(0xa23994c8) out of 5 stars Great Fun and Enjoyable Film Feb. 8 2013
By npiazza - Published on
Anybody here complaining about pacing problems or "bad" performances should really have looked at the box a little closer before picking up this film. It's a grindhouse picture, pure and simple. It's not meant to be perfect, which is actually part of the appeal of the film. Personally, I felt the performances were quite good. Michael Biehn was great and I see more directing in his future. It's great fun to see Danielle Harris playing an adult considering she's 35 years old and still almost always gets cast as a teenager or a college student. All in all, you get what you pay for here: a sleazy good time. Previous reviewers on here are obviously not familiar with Michael Biehn or Danielle Harris' previous work if they were expecting any more than that. Not for everybody but it's worth a watch for horror fans.

HASH(0xa23999d8) out of 5 stars Homage to Grindhouse Exploitation Flicks Sept. 12 2012
By The Movie Man - Published on
Format: DVD
"The Victim" is a good example of what happens when one person fills three key roles: writer, director, and actor. In this case, that person is Michael Biehn ("Terminator," "Aliens").

Party girls Annie (Jennifer Blanc) and Mary (Danielle Harris) find themselves in a life and death situation. Annie's life is put in jeopardy when she witnesses the rape and murder of her closest friend at the hands of two sheriff's deputies (Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood). With her pursuers closing in, she stumbles across Kyle (Biehn), a recluse living in the middle of the woods. A rugged loner, Kyle finds the stillness of the woods comforting. He keeps civilization far away until a single knock on his door throws his solitary life into turmoil.

This tawdry film attempts to emulate the grindhouse, exploitation flicks that used to flourish in pre-Disneyfied, 1970's Times Square movie houses. Rated R, it is extremely violent and tough to watch. Rape, murder, gunplay, assorted psychopaths, crooked cops, adult language, and cliches built on cliches abound. Bonus extras on the Blu-ray release include audio commentary with Michael Biehn and a making-of featurette.

HASH(0xa2399a5c) out of 5 stars Michael Biehn delivers the goods Sept. 28 2012
By Dayna Newman Slasher Diva - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
Victim is a very entertaining film ,The acting was really good for a low budget film, the story was interesting, un tedious or boring.
I have been a Michael Biehn fan ever since I saw him in the early 80's slasher 'The Fan' with Lauren Bacall.He was gorgeous then and is still sexy at 54.
Danielle Harris is a joy to watch as is Jennifer Blanc although as a Horror fan I have a special place in my heart for Danielle. Even though Mary, Danielle's character is killed off in the beginning of the film we see her in flash backs as Annie "Blanc"is reflecting on their friendship and she is really sexy in her little stripper outfits,you guys should love that,seeing as Biehn and Blanc are married in real life the sex scene was pretty hot and realistic.
It wasn't a slasher or a gore fest but a physiological thriller, mystery of sorts. I liked it even without the element of no gore because the characters and story carried the film and kept me glued to the TV.I hesitated watching because I thought it would be mundane and predictable but it was neither.
Bravo to Biehn for his directing and acting..

HASH(0xa2399e1c) out of 5 stars This film should sell itself.. no "caping" please? Nov. 10 2013
By C. Waters - Published on
First of all, i decided to check the reviews of this movie on Imdb.. I couldn't believe how many "Biehn-fiends" were there posing as forum members. They might also have come onto this site "caping" as well. Many of these people are crew members, or "passionate fans" of Micheal Biehn and his wife (Jennifer Blanc-Biehn).

These "said" "reviewers" went to the Scare Fest were the screening of this movie premiered and were told once they left they should go on the forums and "give their honest opinion". Some of these fans were even invited to be on the set of the movie while it was being filmed. Thus, how in the hell do you expect a bunch of biased zealots to 'GIVE AN HONEST OPINION'??

"Capes".. you really should stop. The film will sell itself. Seriously. Some of us, will get so disgusted at such fraudulent tactics to the point where we probably don't want see the damn film. Thanks to you.

I did rent the movie found that it was half decent. I did find the reviews from "real people" very helpful. Thus, i knew what to expect from this movie.

I will say the driving scenes last between 4-5 mins each. the ones with flashbacks even longer.

The sex? why? Robert Rodriguez made his directorial debut w/$7,000 "El Mariachi"? and he never really included multiple, tawdry sex scenes. I don't know if this movie was targeted for the less than intelligent movie-goer, or just a bunch of horny people that want to see amateur porn.

And another thing! Where the hell did the sex scene b/t Mike/Jennifer come from? Did this chick get turned on by looking at her friend's bracelet? or just getting yelled at by Kyle? It didn't fit in the screenplay, if it did? it could have come much later - or after she took a shower, for gawd's sake.

Mike we ladies know you're sexy - and that you can screw for a 54 year old. Seriously? Hell, man, you've been in Hollywood like, "since birth" almost, and trust me, by the time you make that age in THAT neck of the woods? - you SHOULD know how to screw for a 54 year old. (55 in real life).

It's very obvious that you 2 are proud of each others bodies, and sexual prowess. With each other - as well as multiple people, it shows. But we, as the public, don't need to know that.

You've worked with Robert Rodriguez as well as Quentin Tarentino in a true grind house flick. Even in one movie: "Grind House Planet Terror"- yes, you were there - they show the 2 actors at the beginning of a love scene - then leave the rest to the audiences imagination.

We didn't have to see Rosie McGowan's MAMMORY'S dangling in front of the camera. Or the constant fellatio simulation with other actors. All viewers are not about "that life"..

I guess there's a little bit of something for everyone in this movie? Not bad for $800,000.

Oh, and one more thing? Hypocrisy runs rampant in Hollywood. I watched the "behind the scenes" footage. I wasn't shocked at how Mike and Jennifer were bellowing/ranting at the crew during this project. Yet, when Christian Bale "went off" while filming "Terminator"? Guess who wanted to look cool for an interview, and said: "It's just role, it's not that serious".. the same guy whom everyone watched yelling/screaming along with his devoted wife for a low budget 12 day vanity project.

Here's an example of the wife. One of the actors was in a pit, obviously hurt. She's SITTING at the edge of the pit gestures (her arm is extended into the camera next to the pit) to the actor and demands: "Will somebody help him???". Well, if you were that concerned, you would have gotten off your well-fed behind to help the man yourself.

done reviewing.

HASH(0xa23c9948) out of 5 stars "The Victim Here Is You" Nov. 24 2012
By The Brock Lesnar of Reviewing - The Most Hated - Published on
Format: DVD
I love the old Micheal Biehn from "Aliens" and "The Terminator" but this 2000's Biehn is definitely off his game. Now I don't think his acting here was as bad as in "The Divide", it was still not one of his best efforts. Sub par story, crap acting and bad dialogue make "The Victim" a Victim of its own creator ultimately turning this into a bottom of the bin selection.

Two stripper party girls (Jennifer Blanc an Danielle Harris) go out with two cops to party in the woods, one of them gets murdered for having a big mouth during a sexual encounter and both cops try to cover it up. Meanwhile the other girl gets away and eventually finds old Biehn in his secluded cabin in the woods and begs him for help which he reluctantly does.

The acting is so bad that you can tell they're acting, it made me laugh more than anything. Daniel Harris really should have been the main girl and not the one who got murdered, in the end I think Jennifer Blanc got favoritism for being Biehns wife. "The Victim" is not really a horror movie and the one gore scene is actually botched when you see one victim's head smashed in with a rock in one scene than the next scene his head is just covered in blood and not smashed in anymore, too funny. If bad acting and editing mistakes were what they were aiming for, they hit it dead on.

If you really want to see "The Victim" make sure you rent it, if you skipped "The Victim" you missed absolutely nothing worth watching.
