*SPOILERS, I GUESS... EVEN THOUGH PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS MOVIE*
The first half of this film is not very good. It's almost as if they make the sexual assault sequence just long enough to stretch the film over ninety minutes, and in order to stretch the film over ninety minutes, they had to make the sequence incredibly drawn out and gratuitous. It might be realistic - I'm sure there have been terrible cases where women have actually had to endure that sort of torture for such a prolonged period of time... but from a purely filmic standpoint, it doesn't work in my opinion. Why? Because it exhausts and repulses the…
Rapists are the easiest assholes for a chick to get sweet revenge on. Flash em a little wink, and they're all yours.
Just watched one of the most uncomfortable movies I've ever seen with the Joe Bob Briggs audio commentary and it was an entirely new experience. The first time I watched this it was brutal. The rape was excruciating (still is) and while the revenge was satisfying it was still tough to watch.
Briggs adds a level of entertainment to the film that will never be there on its own. He cracks a few jokes at the actors' and director's expense which actually made me chuckle a few times during the movie least likely to ever make a person laugh. He also points out certain aspects of the art and storytelling of the movie that I didn't necessarily notice the first…

Why do you watch horror films?
It’s a vexing question, so much so that books have been written, college courses taught, newspaper columns filled, exploring, debating and decrying the genre. Filmmakers have examined the effect and attraction of viewing violent imagery in films that include Michael Powell’s Peeping Tom, David Cronenberg’s Videodrome, and Michael Haneke’s Funny Games. Incredulous outsiders to the genre often ask the horror fan some version of this question. And you know there’s always that tone to it right? An assumption that there is something distasteful/twisted/sick about enjoying this kind of material. Man, why do you watch those gnarly movies?
Then you come across a film like Meir Zarchi’s I Spit On Your Grave and it seems…
needed more castration scenes imo
Pretty violent. Who the hell was this made for anyway?
Hooptober 3.0 #13.
70's grimey, rape/revenge nastiness. Authentic in it's notoriety.
Everything about this is off. The audio, cinematography and the acting is really bad. It just seems really excessive.
A rough flick.
I went into this film with low expectations and to my surprise it wasn’t that bad, although I will probably never watch it again. Your anger grows and grows in the first half, which makes the second half of the film so damn satisfying. The acting is pitiful, but that’s to be expected with most grindhouse films. The rape scene is dirty, bloody and long as hell, but nowhere near as disturbing as the rape scene in Irreversible, but that’s a pretty unfair comparison. The revenge scenes are creative, methodical and unsettling, but still manages to fill me with triumph when they’re carried out. If you can bare the very unpleasant first half, the second half really makes for a rewarding viewing experience.
A great deal has been said about Israeli filmmaker Meir Zarchi's rape/revenge classic,ranging from Roger Ebert mightily condemning(and damning) it to Joe Bob Briggs mightily praising it. Yes,the tale of vacationing writer Camille Keaton(WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE,TRAGIC CEREMONY) getting brutally raped by assorted local men who leave her for dead,only to end up being hunted down and slain by Keaton is unapologetically sleazy(with a lengthy rape scene[of Keaton's assault]) and low budget looking,but yet it is well made and well acted and the story has the viewers mightily cheering for Keaton as her strong on-screen presence strengthfully holds up the film and keeps it moving along,no matter how ugly it gets as hanging rope,a castrating knifeman axe,and a…
Me da igual que no sea original, si una película consigue lo que quiere y es honesta consigo misma. Puedo pasar de que los actores sean malísimos, si al fin y al cabo la historia me entretiene (soy español, se de lo que hablo). Me importa quizá un poco mas el guion, pero que coño, estamos en los setenta inmersos en la serie b.
Dejemos de ser snobs por un rato, ¡estamos ante una "Viedo Nasty" coño! Tenemos sangre, desnudos integrales, venganza y algo que me encanta, las escenas mas terroríficas del film son a plena luz del día.
No estamos ante una buena peli, ya lo se, pero no solo lo bonito y perfecto gusta. Al contemporáneo de Wes…
Clássico, sexploitation dirigido pelo pouco conhecido Meir Zarchi (Don’t Mess with My Sister!, 1985). O filme é bem dirigido, tem um ritmo narrativo muito bom, principalmente se comparado aos filmes da época! A obra é impactante e chama atenção, parte por sua temática de "terror" não fantasioso e sim um terror presente até os dias de hoje, e parte pela boa direção e atuações que consegue passar bem a mensagem. A história em momento algum causa surpresa, mas é muitobem feita e bem montada. Outro mérito da produção é o fato da ausência de trilha sonora, proposital, para evidenciar os gritos e sofrimentos das vítimas e deixar o clima mais realista! E ainda, outro pronto positivo é a "lição" do…

Summer of the Beast film #44
So, I actually really liked this? And maybe it was because I came in with pretty low expectations (and a very frank understanding of how long the rape scene was going to be, so I had my phone by me if I wanted to look at something else). And, like, I'm not trying to say that rape revenge isn't gross for a lot of reasons, or that this film in particular is somehow not exploitative or sexist.
But, I like watching women get revenge. It makes me feel better about a lot of things that have happened to me, honestly. Which is silly, but, hey, that's where I'm at. I like this era of…
