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.
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.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
What a graphic film this is.
I young writer goes off to the woods to spend some time in a cabin to be alone with her thoughts and write her new book.
Unfortunately, instead of a nice bit of solitude she gets brutally raped by 3 local lads (one with the IQ of a potato) and the sheriff.
As she trundles off into the woods the woods, the sexual deviants believe that there is nothing more to think about as she falls into a fast flowing river.
Oh how wrong these munchkins are as, despite falling naked into a river, she emerges some time later fully clothed and looking like she has left a beauty salon to exact some extreme revenge.
I'm more of an ass woman.
Brutal. Not that a remake was particularly wanted/needed, but it does a decent enough job of updating the original - retaining the nastiness. An uncomfortable watch. I've not braved the sequels. Yet...
An improvement over the original 1978 film in many ways, this remake boasts slicker production values, better performances and a hotter lead actress. The notorious gang rape scene is shortened, but the act itself and the humiliation that occurs beforehand is just as brutal. The revenge is more elaborately staged and over-the-top than I remember it being in the original, which makes it less effective as a result (although putting fish hooks through a dude's eyelids and anally raping another dude with a shotgun will make many viewers cringe).
Despite being more professionally made than most rape-and-revenge films, I Spit on Your Grave is still too run-of-the-mill to be shocking, and the telegraphed plot and flat characterization deprive the film from being as disturbing as the acts on screen. I'm not a fan of the amateurish original, either, but I think I prefer it slightly to the remake just for its gritty, trashy, 70's vibe.
You think penguin books bought and published her book?
A little too disturbing and graphic for my taste.
I'm not the biggest fan of the original, because there's a ton more "rape" than there is "revenge." This one fixes that. It even over-corrects a bit, as the protagonist basically turns into Tobin Bell from "Saw." Still, it's genuinely unsettling, even if it is overlong.

Victim Jennifer Hills clearly watched one too many "Saw" movies.
So this is a tough one. I mean what did I expect from this? Like everyone, I knew the story already. I then preceeded to watch it unfold exactly as expected. Rape then revenge.
Sure there is talent here. The gang of men act frightenly realistically which only makes the violence and rape more shocking. Good performances (more than it deserves), and some wonderfully perverted kills.
In summary, it's 50 minutes of suspense that culminates in a degrading and unrelenting rape. Then another 50 minutes ending in face meltings in lye baths, eyelids and fish hooks, castration with shears and anal shotgun rape to balance things.
Not sure the point of all that.
Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
