I Spit on Your Grave
It's Date Night
A remake of the 1979 controversial 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 led by Johnny, the town's service station owner, his two co-workers, Andy and Stanley, who along with their socially and mentally challenged friend Matthew, set out one night to teach this city girl a lesson.
I don't take orders from no fucking woman!
Sarah Butler plays Jennifer Hills, a writer that happens to look like an 18 year old lingerie model. She needs seclusion to finish her crap novel so she decides the best thing to do is rent a log cabin, that looks like $300,000 house, in the middle of Bumfuck Nowhere. Apparently they don't rent log cabins in reputable parts of the United States.
The neighboring community to this cabin consists of three assholes, a mentally challenged man, the…
The gratuitous nature of the rape scene, used only to create a motive for revenge, make this one insulting piece of crap. This does not empower women, it exploits them, no matter how much gore you throw at us afterwards.
Uncomfortable to watch? Sure. Infuriating? Most definitely.
Sometimes my curiosity is my biggest enemy.
Remake of the dreadful 1978 Day of the Woman: A writer is raped and brutalized at her cabin retreat and left for dead - but she lives and seeks revenge against the men who attacked her.
The two things that I deeply hate in movies has to be Mindless blood and gore and Rape, and this movie is the full bag of those two. The reason why I watched this because...well I never heard of this film before. I heard a lot of people talk about it and what I heard wasn't very positive. When I watched the film I couldn't help to ask the one question, who enjoys this? Who the hell…
I spit on the grave of people who don't want to be cool
A strange choice of a film to remake, but a slicker and more satisfying version of the archetypal rape/revenge sub-genre flick. I can understand that not sitting well with folks but nevertheless, both times I've watched this (I know), I enjoy the revenge. Elaborate and nasty. A film of two halves, or as many would say, "tonally all over the place".
Like that last guys face. All over the shop.

The film starts off with a beautiful young woman who just wants to get out where there are no disruptions, distractions or interruptions; away from the hustle and bustle of the city, simply to concentrate on writing her next novel.
On her way to the cabin she rented, she has to stop for gas. As she pumps gas she attempts to get help with directions from the guys who are attending the station. Being a small town where there is nothing to do, the attendants seem a little odd, not familiar with outsiders or how to interact with them.
I think most of us have seen this or the original already. If not, I'm pretty sure you've…
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.

Is it weird that I wanted this to be more revenge-y?
So my happy go lucky choice of films continues. Oooph this is a nasty one. Humiliation, rape and some seriously inventive revenge methods are all on show here. In the unrated version that I watched there is considerably more humiliation and rape on show compared to the UK release and it's certainly not an easy watch.
It doesn't quite match the sheer brutalness of Irreversible, but it does leave a nasty taste in your mouth.
For those who don't know, it's Steven R Monroe's 2010 version of the 1978 cult classic from Meir Zarchi, originally titled Day of the Woman.
It tells the story of Jennifer Hills, a novelist who is escaping the city for some seclusion to write her…
"It's date night"
I Spit on Your Grave is one of the hardest to watch films I've ever seen. It's grim, intense, extremely unsettling and really disturbing.
The rape scenes went on for way too long; they're very difficult to watch.
It's kind of satisfying seening Jennifer get her revenge but what she does to some of them is so disturbing and very disgusting.
This is a very well made film; it's well shot. The performances are great.
Although, I don't see myself watching this one again. It's one of the most depressing films I've ever seen
I've been taking suggestions from friends for movie's to watch this October and this was one of them. If you can get past the brutal rape scenes, then I guess this could be considered a fairly well done revenge flick.. It features a woman on a mission that cannot, and doesn't deserve to, be stopped on her way to the ultimate justice. Performances were good enough I guess, but all I can remember is the opening 20-30 minutes, which is fairly tough to watch. Feels like a low budget horror the entire time, but if held to only that metric, its actually pretty good at what it does. Your glad to see the end as you feel it was well deserved and a long time coming, but god damn did it take a lot to get there.
esse é um dos primeiras do filmes doce vingança,é o melhor na historia e a vingança .
If you can stomach this movie, it's worth it. But be warned of the violence, including rape.
One of the few remakes that gets it right. Kill scenes are out of control in this one. Doesn't have the gritty, low budget feel of the original, but makes up for it in spades with the gore. As uncomfortable to watch as the original.
i'm giving this 1 star because the special fx were pretty good & though the kills were ridiculously contrived they were savage & entertaining. the rest was pure garbage.
also, one of the rapists was the gay best friend from Mean Girls so I couldn't really take him seriously
