I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman)

Critics Consensus

I Spit on Your Grave is as aggressively exploitative as its title suggests, although as a crude rejoinder to misogyny, it packs a certain amount of undeniable power.

    I can't see anything appealing or satisfying in this revenge exploitation movie, and it looks cheap and ugly in basically every aspect: the subpar acting, poor direction (even the framing is awful), amateurish pacing and ridiculous deaths that don't justify all the violence that precedes them.

    Boring, shallow and unenjoyably unsettling, I Spit On Your Grave really isn't fun to experience. Whilst it features a few good shots and has an intruiging story, it just makes for an unpleasant viewing each time you sit down to watch it. Unfortunately, its more torture porn than a revenge film however the film its for the most part forgiveable because its aware of its own bad taste.

    Justifiably infamous. Which means it is just as exploitative to the nth-degree as it was in 1977, a nasty, nearly unwatchable sequence of rapes leading to a warpath of bloody revenge that far exceeds anything Pam Grier dealt out. Waaaay too long to sit through the bad acting of some truly despicable (and moronic) characters.

    "I Spit on Your Grave"? What, another spaghetti western? This 1977 cult classic is a fine example of a great title that has nothing to do with its attached story. "Lake Rape" would be a more appropriate handle for this dingy, low-budget exploitation film that's more shocking today for its untamed pubic hair than its violence. What's most attractive about "Grave" is the clean, undistracted symmetry of its structure -- a woman is sequentially raped by four men (three brutes, one imbecile), and then takes sequential revenge on her attackers. Rape, rape, rape, rape. Kill, kill, kill, kill. The geometry is perfect. No other characters have time to make much impression, and they're not missed. But viewers who require craftsmanship or competent acting should paddle elsewhere.
