Well-shot exploitation that has less purpose and utility than in 1978.

Movie Info

A remake of the controversial 1979 cult classic, I Spit on Your Grave retells the horrific tale of writer Jennifer Hills, who takes a retreat from the city to a charming cabin in the woods to start on her next book. But Jennifer's presence in the small town attracts the attention of a few morally deprived locals who set out one night to teach this city girl a lesson. They break into her cabin to scare her. However, what starts out as terrifying acts of humiliation and intimidation, quickly and uncontrollably escalates into a night of physical abuse and torturous assault. But before they can kill her, Jennifer sacrifices her broken and beaten body to a raging river that washes her away. As time passes, the men slowly stop searching for her body and try to go back to life as usual. But that isn't about to happen. Against all odds, Jennifer Hills survived her ordeal. Now, with hell bent vengeance, Jennifer's sole purpose is to turn the tables on these animals and to inflict upon them every horrifying and torturous moment they carried out on her... only much, much worse. -- (C) Anchor Bay

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

  • Audiences who like the spectacle of men being tortured and women being raped may well be the same audiences. For them, this film offers a two-for-one deal.

  • By honing the jagged edges of Meir Zarchi's cheap and nasty rape-revenge shocker into slick entertainment, this unwelcome remake improves technically on the 1978 original, while retaining all that was sleazy and repellent...

  • Neither boring enough to qualify as pornography nor vital enough to generate a controversy.

  • An attempt to trade on its predecessor's reputation without really grappling with the questions it raises, Monroe's version merely seems shallow, cynical and extremely ugly.

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

Audience Reviews for I Spit On Your Grave

Revenge is a dish best served cold, but this flawed movie spends way too much time showing the protagonist's horrendous suffering and humiliation in an overlong (and graphic) setup before finally moving on to the entertaining part where we get to see her actions against her aggressors.

The reboot. The remake. Second verse, same as the first. First, introduction of the players. Second, brutal rape (wherein little is spared visually, an act that makes us willing participants, d-d-duh). Third, even more brutal revenge (the same). "Where's the entertainment value here," that is the question. Introduction To Torture Porn 101.
