Director Al Adamson and producer Sam Sherman were never ones for subtlety. The original name for this low-budget drive-in action thriller was Girls for Rent, but according to Sherman (who introduces the film with a few anecdotes) the title was changed when it went to video, and it stuck. And why not? It's an appropriately incendiary title for a violent, raw production. Legendary X-rated star Georgina Spelvin (Behind the Green Door) stars as a hard-bitten hit woman sprung from a Mexican prison by a mob boss with big plans. Her first job is the murder of a blackmailing politician, but when a witness flees in panic Spelvin and tough-as-nails partner in crime Rosalind Miles hit the road to silence her for good. Shot on the cheap by longtime collaborator Gary Graver (who also photographed Orson Welles's last films), it's a lean, brutal film with some unexpectedly affecting moments. Spelvin is awkward with dialogue but makes a wicked psycho killer, cackling with maniacal glee as she murders her way through the California desert. Miles has charisma to spare as the more calculating of the pair. Unlike many of Adamson's productions, it's a coherent film from start to finish with a hard, vicious edge and a nihilistic twist rarely seen in the low-budget action films made today.

Sam Sherman's commentary is full of production anecdotes, notably including a "revolt" on the set by the actresses and a pair of lawsuits launched by two of the actors, and once again he gives a tutorial on practical low-budget shooting. The DVD also features a newly recorded introduction, a profile taken from the cable TV series Split Screen, and trailers to this and four other Al Adamson-Sam Sherman collaborations. --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

Just when you though it was safe to go back in the bedroom... Two mob hit women are set up as exectioners for hire. They mix love, murder and cruelty in their work in this fast-paced thriller on wheels. I Spit On Your Corpse is a violent, raw production starring legendary X-rated star Georgina Spelvin (Behind the Green Door) as a tough-as-nails hit woman sprung from a Mexican prison by a mob boss with big plans. Her first job is the murder of a blackmailing politician, but when a witness flees in panic Spelvin and her vicious girlfriend Rosalind Miles hit the road to silence her for good! Produced independently by Sam Sherman and shot by longtime collaborator Gary Graver (who also photographed Orson Welles's last films), it's a lean, brutal film. film from start to finish with a hard, vicious edge and a nihilistic twist rarely seen in the low-budget action films made today. This DVD, part of Troma Team Video’s Al Adamson Collection, comes with an audio commentary by Sam Sherman, a featurette "Producing Schlock."

3.0 out of 5 stars A Trash Treasure from Al Adamson February 15, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've just recently started checking out the works of Al Adamson after reading the his bio "Schlock-O-Rama," by David Konow. In a brief chapter in that book about "I Spit on Your Corpse" (originally released as "Girls for Rent"), Konow describes how it contains the most offensive scene Adamson ever filmed, in which Georgina Spelvin's character sexually torments (and worse) a mentally handicapped character. So, right away, I knew I had to see it (movies described as "vile," "offensive," "shocking" usually attract my interest). But "I Spit on Your Corpse" is also a pretty entertaining action/exploitation pic. Oh, sure, it's not technically refined and has plenty of those laughable elements movies of this type are known for: continuity errors (like how Spelvin is barefoot when doing roadwork as a prisoner, then has shoes for her escape a few minutes later), cheap sets (an obviously abandoned gas station is used for several scenes), and, of course, bad acting. But it's also a tighter tale than Adamson's more popular "Satan's Sadists." And a lot meaner, too, thanks largely to porn star Spelvin, a far more effective villain than "Sadists"' Russ Tamblyn. Looking more like an angry PTA president than sexpot (even if she is wearing her shirts unbuttoned well past her bra-less breasts), Spelvin fully embodies her tough-as-nails role, showing herself to be the best actress of the bunch. Curiously, though the movie largely trades on Spelvin's notoriety as a porn star, she has only one sex scene, and with the exception of occasionally exposing her breasts, she's usually clothed. Don't worry, though, there are plenty of other women around to provide the requisite T&A, most notably the T&A of Susan McIver. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Sure, It's Pretty Bad... May 16, 2002
Format:DVD
But I wish people would leave Al Adamson alone. As Sam Sherman states in the dvd's honest and illuminating commentary, this is nothing more than a drive-in movie, aimed at a drive-in audience. Its value lies in the sociological import such films (inadvertently) carry, capturing an era that has since completely vanished, and, as such, it's pretty entertaining. The only difference between films like this one and the latest STAR WARS film in terms of the pleasure they provide is about 100 million dollars, and I'd argue that the performances, energy, and inventiveness of the worst of Adamson outshine the best of the equally exploitative Lucas.

Format:DVD
This drive-in classic finally gets the full DVD treatment from Troma!!! This is a true relic of the past!!! Lots of action!!! A Great commentary track by Sam Sherman. A cool documentary, trailers and more!!! This movie was directed by the late Al Adamson(He was sadly murdered in 1995). A seventies classic!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Why?! February 16, 2001
Format:DVD
Let's face it - cheesy movies definitely have their place in society. Who hasn't wasted away an evening with frozen pizza, beer and a movie? And once the beer begins to make its mark it really doesn't matter what the little people on your tv are saying and doing. So, in this respect, "I Spit On Your Corpse" is a worthy enough movie to fill this niche. But for crying out loud - don't buy the DVD! Just ... rent it as you will not be wanting to watch it twice.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is on DVD? January 20, 2001
Format:DVD
It's hard to believe that a movie like "I Spit On Your Corpse" is coming to the general public in digital format, while most normal people would love to see real films like "Star Wars", "Indiana Jones" and heck, even "Puff The Magic Dragon" show up on DVD. But instead we get this? The only reason I even know this movie exists is because my brother and I were bored one night and decided to grab pizza, beer and the worst-looking movie we could find at the video store. This one won, of course. In fact, until this very moment I was convinced that we were the only two people on earth that had ever even heard of this movie. It's about half-naked women that escape from prison (I think) and get involved in shady mob work, chasing one of their former members after she witnessed a murder, got scared, and ran off. So the rest of the film is a chase scene pretty much. It's soft-core porn at its most uninteresting, I'm guessing (not too familiar with the genre). The parts that are supposed to be funny (both of them) aren't and the rest of it is. As far as acting, plot and other more esoteric film elements go, I have seen worse. But most of the time I've sure seen a lot better. Unless you were personally in this movie and would like to have a copy for archival purposes, I wouldn't suggest buying it. In fact, if you have even seen this movie once in your life, I'd highly recommend hypnotherapy to get rid of the memories. However, if you literally have every other movie in existence, and you have plenty of money to blow on nothing better, I suppose I can't stop you from getting this one as well.
