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…
rape revenge movies re: feminism is literally the snake eating itself
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
rape revenge movies re: feminism is literally the snake eating itself
How does one appraise a film designed explicitly to make the viewer feel awful? If one approaches it from the perspective that it is a success if it makes the viewer feel terrible throughout the whole experience, then I Spit on Your Grave is an incredible success - it is a truly nauseating picture from start to finish, as it was designed to be from the word go.
From all technical perspectives, I Spit on Your Grave is a fine movie - while no shots are especially gorgeous or memorable, it's well-filmed and the washed-out colour palette befits the ugliness of the situation it portrays, plus the actors all do perfectly well with the roles they're given - but it's…
I did a write up on the original film a few years ago. Since then I've actually watched the second and third film in this remake series without having seen this first one.
I recorded it off Starz to watch at my own leisure and it's been awhile since I've seen the original but I think this remake adds an extra character and is vastly less graphic than the original.
I felt dirty after watching the first film. I felt bad for the female character in this but she's written so poorly and the redneck guys are just annoying beyond belief.
Ultimately we get through the rape scenes for the pleasure of the revenge killings but God were…
So let's start with the basics. This film was not good but not bad but I probably would not watch it again. I just don't think the rape and revenge genre is something I really like.
The deaths in the film were absolutely brutal and just really disgusting. That was probably my main problem with the film. And I'm kind of surprised that I didn't like it because I love gore, but these deaths were just gross and it's not even because of the gore.
I also just didn't really like the characters. They all felt flat and clichè. I hated all the guys and even though you're supposed to, they just we're not interesting at all. The lead girl was just not in it enough, even though the story was supposed to be focused on her! I think she had so much potential, but her characters was just not done well.
Overall just not my favorite.
This is a remake of the controversial 1970's exploitation flick in which a woman is raped and tortured by several men, and she returns for revenge, killing them in brutal ways.
The supposed reason films like this and Craven's "Last House on the Left" was to warn people not to let themselves get into these kinds of situations, but that's a bit extreme and unnecessary as far as I'm concerned. Nowadays, I think we are a little bit more educated.
I do not need to see graphic depictions of rape to know how evil it is.
Am I a bad person for not hating this? The first half is a total mess, just filled with terrible performances and an awful script. However, the second half redeems it a little. The final 30 minutes are, quite honestly, straight up weird and competent revenge/torture porn. It's not a good movie, don't get me wrong, but it COMMITS.
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
