Nothing but a fur pile in Furry Vengeance

As in Lars Von Trier's Antichrist, nature is Satan's palace in the new family film.


Furry Vengeance is bad. Bad like you would expect. Family films usually try to shove an unrefined and insincere message down your throats amid the groin jokes and Furry Vengeance is no exception, although, this time the message is "green." (No details beyond that.) Now let's have fun. Film reviews require a quick description of the plot, and Furry Vengeance is notable in how its story closely hews to Lars Von Trier's Antichrist. Both films feature families who venture into the woods and don't like the consequences. Both films feature trauma to sexual organs. Both films portray nature as Satan's palace. Antichrist's views on women and despair were up for debate and not easy to listen to. Furry Vengeance avoided an actual green message because it's probably one we don't want to hear.
