Critic Reviews for I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman)
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.
It's poorly made, the acting is non-existent and it's overly violent and brutal. That being said, it's a wildly notorious film and its legacy is undeniable.
Director Meir Zarchi may have been trying to make a point about the horrors of rape, brutality, revenge, and reprisal, but he simply isn't a good enough director to extract any relevance or nuance from his exploitative material
It's about the strongest "Take Back the Night" statement ever made. She doesn't just take back the night. She takes back the night, the morning, the afternoon, and steals the clock while she's at it.
Where the original really comes crashing down into a heap of garbage, though, is in the revenge angle.
Audience Reviews for I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman)
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.
Here's a film that I've been wanting to see for years. I had heard about how graphic it was, but I have to say I'm a little disappointed. Too much build-up I suppose, or maybe just high expectations. I Spit on Your Grave would make a good double feature along with Deliverance. There's rape and nudity abound in this movie, so if you can't handle things of that nature, I'd suggest passing this one up. This poor lady is raped and beaten seven ways from Sunday and then returns to exact revenge against her assailants (whom amazingly left her alive). My favorite bit is the guy getting a handjob in the bathroom and when he has an orgasm she cuts his penis off... and he doesn't even notice. That must have been one hell of an orgasm. I don't care who you are. If you're in the middle of coming and somebody cuts your manhood off, you're going to notice, and it's going to hurt. She then proceeds to lock him in the bathroom and wait for him to bleed to death. The best death by far, if not incredibly unrealistic. As you can tell, this isn't a terrific film by any means, but it's a bit of a curiosity that most people with a stomach for this sort of thing might want to seek out. The film was remade a couple of years and from what I understand, much of the nudity and violence was cut back. I wonder how much intensity it adds to the scenes. Hmm, maybe we'll see one day.
Boring. Not bad, just overrated. It wasn't nearly as violent as I thought it would be. I've seen other, more disturbing, more explicit movies than this from the 70s. This movie felt dry. The actors were average, and the story was too. Overall, it's just okay.
