Camille Keaton, grand-niece of Buster and star of the thriller Cosa Avete Fatto a Solange?, appears here as Jenny, an aspiring novelist who rents a cabin in the Connecticut woods. Three rednecks at a local gas station and a retarded delivery boy seem quite friendly at first, and many viewers wonder just where director Meir Zarchi is going with the story. Then he drops them 200,000 feet right into the center of Hell for the longest, nastiest, and most brutal gang-rape in motion-picture history.

This is a film without a shred of artistic distinction. It lacks even simple craftsmanship. There is no possible motive for exhibiting it, other than the totally cynical hope that it might make money.
Ghostly, wrenching, and defiling, I Spit on Your Grave comes out of the past coated in textured mud and blood, returning in a rapturous Blu-ray edition.
Where the original really comes crashing down into a heap of garbage, though, is in the revenge angle.
Gruesome and incredibly exploitative. However, for better or for worse, I Spit on Your Grave shows us the raw, shocking reality of rape, in all its bloody viciousness.
in the dualistic contours of the rape-revenge subgenre, Zarchi finds a way to position his characters and viewers alike as both aggressors and victims. The results are neither comfortable nor pretty, but they are certainly confronting.
A precise and damning indictment of male sexuality, perhaps the most stridently anti-masculine film ever made by a male filmmaker.
Salivating gore with classic title.
A montagem peca pela falta de ritmo e as mortes são patéticas, mas os dois primeiros atos do filme chocam pela intensidade com que retratam a violência sofrida pela personagem de Keaton, que, aliás, oferece uma performance visceral.
Simply another crudely made, explicitly violent '70s-era exploitation flick.
This is one exploitation horror movie that lives up to its classic title.
