Product Description

Unforgiving. Uncompromising. Unmerciful. Unrated.

The original version was reviled, condemned, and banned around the world for its on-screen depictions of depravity and violence. Now experience the acclaimed remake that dares to go even further: Jennifer Hills (a fearless performance by Sarah Butler) is a big-city novelist who rents an isolated country cabin to write her new book. But when she is brutally raped by a group of sadistic rednecks, Jennifer has plans for more than mere revenge. One-by-one she will find them. She will inflict horrific acts of agonizing torment upon them. And no jury in America would ever convict her. Jeff Branson (All My Children), Daniel Franzese (Bully), Rodney Eastman (A Nightmare On Elm Street 3 & 4), Chad Lindberg (The Fast and The Furious) and Tracey Walter (The Silence of The Lambs) co-star in this graphic, shocking and undeniably disturbing new take on one of the most controversial films of all time.


The 1978 edition of I Spit on Your Grave has been hailed as a milestone of film terror and inspiration to the "Fangoria" generation. It's also been vilified, denounced, and figuratively spat upon not only for its hatefully misogynist premise, but also for the laughable ineptitude of its technical (under)achievements. In fact, the bloody disgusting and offensive points it scores are pretty much off the charts. That's either a positive or the nastiest kind of negative, depending on the viewer's taste for bad moviemaking and a philosophically repulsive center. This remake from 2010 remains mostly true to the black soul of the original, but bumps up the style into the most exquisite places of cinematography, art direction, production design, and even acting. The story follows Jennifer (Sarah Butler), a top-model-beautiful writer, as she ventures into a Deliverance-esque backwater where she plans to complete her next novel. Initially it's nothing but bucolic cabin views and picturesque bog-and-bayou territory in which she pokes at her laptop, drinks wine and smokes a little weed, and lounges around in sweats, a bikini, or sometimes nothing at all. But those boneheaded rednecks at the gas station who she embarrassed with her city-chick sass start chewing over ways to give her the comeuppance she deserves for being an uppity know-it-all bitch. With support from their local sheriff, who's an evil-hearted good ol' boy too, they set out to terrorize her in every way possible, which means repeated sexual humiliation to the nth degree. But since payback is also a bitch, she seemingly rises from the dead to come back and kill 'em all in the most gruesome ways and with cleverly creative and sexually debasing skill. So in essence we have a movie that satisfies the urge for violent retribution in both men and women, makes the gore hounds squeal with delight, and stands as another perfect target for people to deplore the degradation of women in popular culture. As for those technical highlights, there was clearly a reasonable budget to make I Spit on Your Grave based on the producers' reasonable expectation that it had a built-in audience, especially for the home video market. The disc's special features include a few deleted scenes (even for this "unrated" version), commentary from the director and producer, and the featurette The Revenge of Jennifer Hills: Remaking a Cult Icon, in which the stars talk about what "an honor as an actor" it was to be part of the project, and the "privilege that we got to go so deeply dark." Honor and privilege or embarrassment and outrage? Between those extremes there's something for everyone in I Spit on Your Grave. --Ted Fry

The worst comments I see with regards to this movie come from both sides of the remake debate. Some argue that it should never have been remade because they are fans of the original. Other argue that it shouldn't be remade because of the concept.

If the concept offends you, pick up your opinions, there's the door - now leave! Don't turn around, just go! I've had enough of the 'it's bad because it's a rape movie' bull. If it's not your cup of tea, so be it! I probably feel as strongly against 'Sex & The City' but you don't see me shooting those fans down because of taste!

Okay, am I good to continue now?

So you're either a fan of the original, new to this movie, or just interested.


If you're a fan of the original, then I honestly can't tell if you'll like this movie. I HATED the original. I felt it had a very good premise that was poorly executed and in the end just came across as offensive (by the way, I'm female). I thought the concept was good but the manner in which the protagonist went about her revenge was stupid! If a woman has been raped, the very last thing she'd ever be comfortable doing is stripping off in front of the very men who raped her, no matter what her end objective may be! At this point the original made me angry. There's only so much believability I'm willing to sacrifice when I watch a movie - and I'd had enough.

So when I heard this movie was being remade, I was actually quite intrigued. Again, I believed the premise was a good one and I was hoping a new writer and director could do it justice.

They sure did, and some!

The rape scene is brutal and it is hard to watch. However, at the same time, it's not as bad as some make it out to be. I felt it was a perfect balance.

You're a smart lady...an author. You want some peace and quiet to work on your next book, so you rent a cabin in the deep woods to get some work done. The cabin is beautiful. Peaceful. You make some progress on your book. You get a little rest and relaxation lounging by the lake with a glass of wine, smoke a little doobie, and everything is a stone groove....initially. Then it gets really, really bad for you.

And for the viewer it gets hard to watch. Not since Wolf Creek and more recently the remake of Last House on the Left have I squirmed in my seat so much during some of the horrors that ensue.

The movie is about 30 minutes of set up, 30 minutes of unspeakable acts on this poor woman, and 30 minutes of what happens when a lady that's been wronged goes Hostel on her attackers. Unlike 2009's Last House on the Left, there's a high degree of "that could never happen" in I Spit on Your Grave. Aside from the incredibly obvious "you don't walk into that spooky situation, you run from it," there are some blatant story inconsistencies. But the most unbelievable part is after our heroine is brutalized and survives, what she chooses to do in between the time of her ordeal and when she exacts her revenge.

BUT...it was all well-acted and every acted scene was very real.

This remake of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE surprised me. It's actually better than the original! Sarah Butler is outstanding as the pivotal victim-turned-avenger. She is more believable and fierce than her predecessor. Though I was never sympathetic toward her attackers, their various demises did make me wince a couple of times, especially the "garden sheers" and "shotgun" scenes! Yikes! I still despise rape scenes, but at least they're more condensed in this version. As with the reboot of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, ISOYG 2010 is a fantastic update, and worthy of several viewings...

With the resurgence of exploitation films, we've really brought some unpleasantly vicious movies into the mainstream. Some are good, some are not--just like any genre--but what is fascinating to me is how commonplace they now seem. When I was growing up, pictures like the original "I Spit On Your Grave," "Faces of Death" and "Last House on the Left" were considered vile films and they had to be discovered. A largely underground, low budget, and independent film community had to support these controversial, malicious films. In many ways, they represented a rebellion against conventional entertainment. However, by today's standards these films, while certainly grim, are relatively subdued compared to the graphic torture, violence and gore that delight audiences at the local mall.

Designed to provoke audiences, one thing is certain--few people will be ambivalent about the new incarnation of "I Spit On Your Grave." I know people who think it's terrific AND I know people who think that it is repellant. Just the latest example of the growing market I like to refer to as "torture cinema," ISOYG will have very few viewers straddling the middle ground. While the original film played to the time it was released--there was almost a female empowerment message in the retribution scenario--this new version eschews a specific societal context. Much more gore oriented than its predecessor, it feels distinctly less real. That is either good or bad depending on your vantage point. The amateurish quality of the original lends it a gritty realism that actually works in the film's favor. Combined with Camille Keaton's surprisingly effective performance, the film had the flavor of something that could actually happen.
