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 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? seriously who in…
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.
I spit on the grave of people who don't want to be cool

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…
I had high hopes for this one after the Last House on the Left remake turned out to be so well done, but while it's not a completely terrible film it's just not as good as the original film. The rape scene isn't nearly as harrowing which essentially dilutes the payoff, and in a "revenge" flick the relationship between the victimization and the retribution is key. The new film fits firmly in the "torture porn" category with a few of the kills taking their cues from the SAW franchise, but they're also clever and entertaining to be sure. I can't say that I Spit On Your Grave (2010) is completely without merit, but it's not the worthy update on the original film that I had hoped for.
Neprasiet kāpēc man radās ideja šo paskatīties. Manā galvā tarakāni reizēm sarīko varenas orģijas un tad ne to vien nostrādāju:)
Šis ir kaut kāds rimeiks 70 gadu filmai. OK, 70os šitāds stulbings varētu būt ok, mūsdienās tas izskatās kaut kā slimi un infantili.
BET! Nav tāda sūdīga kino, ko nevarētu vērst par labu to paātrinot un apakšā paliekot to muzonu no Bennija Hila šova! Tā arī iesaku šo skatīties.
Vispirms ir jauna dāmīte, rakstniece, kura noīrē meža vidū mājiņu, kur filmas pirmajā daļā šo brutāli varo un piesmej vietējie brašuļi, tostarp viens debīliķis un viens policists. Kad nu šķiet, ka beibe ir beigta, tad šī atgriežās un Hosteļa un Zāģa labākajās tradīcijās piebeidz pāridarītājus.
Īpaši jauki gāja policistam :D
Visu var noskatīties 10 min :)
Well... somehow i liked this torture-porn movie. It's an exploration of a gang-bang sex offenders. They have stalked her, they rape her brutally and then... she escaped. This is the first part of the movie. The second part is her revenge... and it will be a very nasty revenge. However, the movie lacks some more subtle and more psicosis from her.
5/10 - Decent - not good nor bad
Cheap exploitation with dull direction and terrible acting.
Overly long, poorly done female revenge flick. Wants to appear it's taking risks and being edgy while in reality it's just try hard Hollywood drivel.
Delivers everything it promises and leaves the desired effect. Blu-ray quality is fantastic as well.
Beyond the amateur look, unnecessarily exploitative direction, and zero personal non-stereotyped characterizations, the worst part of this movie (and its sequels) are the fucking "sexy/revealing" posters that negate and undermine...everything.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
En vérifiant sa durée avant de lancer le film, j'ai été surpris par sa longueur : presque deux heures ! - Bon une heure quarante cinq, générique de fin non compris, ce qui est encore beaucoup trop long pour un rape and revenge qui ne se réduit généralement qu'à ces deux convulsions narratives justement : le rape d'abord et la revenge ensuite. Le remake respecte à la lettre cette formule d'ailleurs, et parvient à tenir sa -apparemment trop longue- durée sans donner l'impression de s'égarer inutilement. Machine efficace qui ne cherche pas à briller, le film exprime malgré tout une troublante schizophrénie : pur produit de son époque, rendu possible par l'explosion du torture porn, et donc résolu à repousser…
oh my fucking victory. revenge is sweet.
