In David Fincher’s Hollywood-made take on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara, playing Goth computer hacker Lisbeth Salander, endures a particularly graphic rape scene. The film was released just in time for Christmas last year, but we're certain the sequence didn’t spread any holiday cheer.
Those who’ve seen the original 2009 Swedish flick know that director Niels Arden Oplev’s execution of the parent-less Salander’s rape, at the hands of her lawyer, Nils Bjurman, is actually much tougher to watch. Having already forced Lisbeth to go down on him, he strains their relationship even further by beating Ms. Salander down, handcuffing her to a bed, and anally ravaging her naked body.
On the positive side, though, at least Lisbeth gets her revenge in gloriously hardcore fashion by sodomizing him and tattooing the words “I am a sadist pig and a rapist” on Bjurman’s stomach.
