Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
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 a 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…
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? seriously who in…
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.
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.
This film doesn't have a single decent aspect to consider, no matter how much I think and try to find one. The worst of all is that I already expected something like that when I read the synopsis. But there I was looking for something easy to watch on Netflix, something that I didn't have to think so much or pay much attention. Suddenly I saw this interesting and familiar title and decided to give it a try - damn, how wrong can one man ever be...
I do not know why I do this to myself.
I read this review and watched this garbage anyways so I have no one to blame but myself for self-mutilating my mind for 108 minutes.
Packend, brutal, etwas unrealistisch
No me esperaba gran cosa y la verdad que me ha sorprendido.
La historia no es muy original, pero sí algunas escenas de la película.
Seemed too much like glorification to me
A writer who is viciously raped during her cabin retreat seeks revenge on her attackers with deadly results.
Auch im Remake von 2010 ist Jennifer eine junge Schriftstellerin die auf's Land reist, um an ihrem Buch zu arbeiten. Ihre städtische, scheinbar etwas versnobbte Attitüde begeistert nicht alle Einwohner des Umlands. Einige Burschen wollen der jungen Frau eine Lektion erteilen, die aber komplett ausartet und abscheulich endet. Doch letztlich wird es den Peinigern an den kragen gehen, denn Jennifers Rache wird gewaltig werden...
Das 2010er Remake von I Spit On Your Grave wurde von Steven R. Monroe gedreht, der eigentlich nur für C-Trash bekannt ist. Doch ganz überraschend schafft es Monroe viele Schwachstellen und Fehler des Originals abzustellen, obwohl sich das Drehbuch des Remakes fast identisch zum Original liest. Zum einen ist der Film, nicht nur gemessen am Alter…
The remake of the 1979 controversial and banned movie if the same name. Slicker and a bigger budget. Same story and outcomes
"Let's remake a grindhouse rape/revenge flick from the 70's that actually had some purpose and surprisingly worked as a feminist film, despite it's horribly awful subject matter. EXCEPT, let's remake it for the sole purpose of adding more torture porn into the horror audience's memory banks. AND we'll set it in the backwoods of Hickville, USA, but use actors that barely resemble anything remotely white trash, with hopes that the terrible acting will be saved by even more terrible editing, sound design and a completely uninspired score, the one technical aspect that can often make a shitty horror film somewhat tolerable. Nope? Ok, sorry for wasting your time."
-me, pitching this movie to some top-notch producers
It's official. I have no standards anymore.
Last night, my wife went to bed about 10:30. I couldn't decide whether to play video games or perhaps watch another episode of Burn Notice on Netflix. But I was skimming through the channels and I saw this on like Showtime. I own the original, so I figure I'd check it out.
I turned it on right after the rape scene, apparently. And even though it was unpleasant to look at, I decided to see how it compared to the original film (which I didn't like). And the next thing I knew, it was 11:30 and the movie was over. And I felt unclean.
This film is a much more violent, much more…
I have this weird fetish for movies about writers. I love all of them, good or bad.
Please help me…
Contains every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the letterboxd database.
If there is any…
