– Death Wish has the complicated pedigree of being based on a 1974 movie that is then based on a 1972 novel of the same name.

He becomes obsessed with vigilante justice, brutally killing those who attacked his family and anyone else that gets in his way. This version is directed by Eli Roth so it’s even more gory than the original.
