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 Baymore

Critic Reviews for I Spit On Your Grave

All Critics (56) | Top Critics (14)

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...

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

This remake exists in that movie's shadow and, instead of attempting to outshock the original, ups the elaborate revenge aspect and gives you something to shamelessly cheer for.

Nada mais é do que uma narrativa repleta de misoginia, preconceito e estupidez.

Cinema em Cena

It's not that they don't deserve punishment, but the scale here is so out-of-whack with what we're shown, with one battered, tiny girl devising and executing tortures that would have required several construction crews and a team of black ops agents.

Pretty much across the board the characters are more interesting in the remake, but that's really only because they actually are characters to some degree, as opposed to the caricatures presented in the '78 version.

Audience Reviews for I Spit On Your Grave

½

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.

A truly brutal and graphic movie, that will have you watching from behind the sofa!

Super Reviewer

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.
