Honestly, it doesn’t sound too ‘grindhousy,’ but I’m gonna be giving this one the benefit of the doubt. Well it’s been a good week for THE VICTIM; they found an international distributor and it’s gonna be premiering early in October at the Sitges Film Festival in Spain, alongside Jason Eisner’s HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN.
