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 Ú do que uma narrativa repleta de misoginia, preconceito e estupidez.

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.

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.

As dubious as the original, though easier to watch in several ways.

Mostly well made, with solid performances, but there's very little that's fresh or original about this remake.

Gory and violent without really hitting home in either a visceral or meaningful way, and there are chunks that are actually quite dull.

It's better made, more plausible than the original, the sexual violations less drawn out, the vengeance more violent and elaborate.
January 21, 2011
Doesn't appear to set out to eroticise rape, but equally doesn't care if eroticising rape is a by-product of its aim to provoke an emotive reaction - any reaction - in viewers

The sexual violence caused the British Board Of Film Classification to demand 43 seconds of cuts. A shame they didn't cut the rest.

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.

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.

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

Definitely wince-inducing and not for the squeamish, but ultimately a mechanical exercise in cashing-in.

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

From a moral standpoint, I Spit On Your Grave is hard to defend, and from a critical one, it's not really worth defending.

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.

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...
