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.

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

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

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

I Spit on Your Grave improves on Meir Zarchi?s 1978 original, but that?s not saying much.

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

Was there really any reason to remake this?

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

This despicable remake of the despicable 1978 film I Spit on Your Grave adds yet another offense: a phony moral equivalency.

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.

Witless, ugly, leering, and unnecessary.

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 grimy sickness displayed here just isn't as brutally potent as it was in this film's predecessor.

Not as unsettling as the recent Last House on the Left remake or as transcendent as the French-Canadian thriller 7 Days. It's just a depraved cartoon played with a straight face.

When every injury is repaid with interest, this self-destroying work has nowhere to go but to the credits. Such symmetry is a dismal, barbarian sort of perfection.

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...

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

This is a remake of Meir Zarchi's infamous 1978 exercise I Spit on Your Grave, made back when torture porn was readily identified as disgusting and worthy of outrage. Now it's just one more movie in which genitals are sliced.

In addition to all the obvious things that are disgusting about this movie, I Spit on Your Grave is trying to get us to hate each other. Hate it instead. It makes more sense and the hatred is much more deserved.

Certainly, the rape and killings are more intricate, graphic, excruciating and nauseating. Hooray.
