My Score

Writer Jennifer Hills 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 depraved locals who set out one night to teach this city girl a lesson. They break into her cabin to scare her. However, what starts out as terrifying acts of humiliation and intimidation, quickly and uncontrollably escalates into a night of physical abuse and torturous assault. But before they can kill her, Jennifer sacrifices her broken and beaten body to a raging river that washes her away. As time passes, the men slowly stop searching for her body and try to go back to life as usual. But that isn’t about to happen. Against all odds, Jennifer Hills survived her ordeal. Now, with hell bent vengeance, Jennifer’s sole purpose is to turn the tables on these animals and to inflict upon them every horrifying and torturous moment they carried out on her… only much, much worse.

My opinion

“You know what they do to horses that can’t be tamed, Johnny?
They geld them.”

In the run-up to “I Spit on Your Grave II“, I sat myself down and watch this one first. I’m not sure I’m going to watch the second part after this experience. In my opinion it’s not really a horror film. It is rather a revenge movie visualized in a very explicit and confrontational manner. This film is a remake of the original film from 1978, which I’ve never seen. So I can’t make a comparison of this remake and conclude if it was a successful remake or not.

I Spit on Your Grave

The first part of the movie is awful and hard to get through. They could have made the whole rape scene a bit shorter. But it would be a very short movie if they did that because it eventually covers just two facets: the rape and the revenge. And in the revenge part she had those hilly-billy’s literally and figuratively by the balls. The first part was so violent and to sickening for words. The humiliations were inhuman. The panicky feeling and anguish she endured was screaming from the screen. I felt a vicarious shame all the time.

I Spit on Your Grave
Why would someone still watch this movie until the end ? Because you know how it will end, and you can’t wait until those bastards get tit for tat. And most preferably in the most brutal, ruthless and sadistic manner. And this movie fully succeeds in that. Several times I was looking at it with a “Hehehehe suits you right, you scumbag”-feeling. There were fairly inventive revenge moments that nicely matched in line with what the person did during the raping : peeking/filming, immersing in water, the teeth-provocation and anal rape. They all underwent the same. One more brutal and painfully as the other. I even had no sympathy for Matthew despite he was mentally retarded. And actually there were a few who were treated to softly. Suffering a bit more wouldn’t be that bad !
I Spit on Your Grave
This is such a movie where it sounds tremendously weird and inappropriate when you would say “I’ve enjoyed it and it was a good entertaining film …”

My rating 7/10
