If you look at it the right way, I Spit on Your Grave is powerful stuff, much better to be faced and discussed than dismissed and ignored.

It's better made, more plausible than the original, the sexual violations less drawn out, the vengeance more violent and elaborate.

As rape-and-revenge movies (and, indeed horror remakes) go, this is actually pretty good, thanks to strong performances, a decent script and some inventively nasty death sequences.

I still prefer [Meir] Zarchi's contribution by miles, but this is nothing to scoff at either...

For fans who like their cinema uncompromising, this is "shear" entertainment.

A marked improvement on the 1978 original, handled with quiet efficiency by director Monroe, there's enough thrills and chills here to grip horror fans.

There's a danger that, with films as graphic as this one, you end up reviewing the audience rather than the movie.

A remake of two halves that both have impact but don't match up tonally.

A vast improvement over its unwatchable, hopelessly dated predecessor...

While it's not really something I can see myself revisiting any time soon, it's a solid, well made film that should please hardcore horror fans.

Female-empowerment fantasy or just plain prurience, Grave is extremely efficient grindhouse.

I Spit on Your Grave is exploitation pure and simple. But it's artistically redeeming exploitation. If you can handle it, see it.

Yes it is brutal and shocking, but it also happens to be one helluva intense flick for genre fans.

No one is ever going to confuse Steven R. Monroe's remake with The Passion of Joan of Arc, but this ostensibly silly horror quickie possesses a formal sophistication that would make Carl Theodor Dreyer sit up and take notice.

While the material is bleak as hell, the players add some depth and dimension to their characters and one can see the makeup and f/x crew was working overtime to deliver the most realistic, gruesome death scenes possible.

Certainly this remake will not leave everyone smiling, but by taking a modern myth and turning it into a moral minefield, it earns its place in the annals of unease.

It is a movie that digs into a heart of darkness on par with the criminal atrocities that soldiers of all stripes commit against innocent people every day. If it's tough to swallow, that's because it's supposed to be.

Hugely violent, well-acted, with a plot that lacks complexity of, for example, Eli Roth's 'Hostel 2.'

It's intentionally, efficiently ugly, through and through.
