    the brutality of the rape scene in the original version left me sick to my stomach. in this version it its been extremely toned down and extended, losing its effectiveness. when the heroine comes back and starts killing her attackers its not nearly as satisfying. this movie reminds me of the "last house on the left" remake which also toned downed it raw brutality and replaced it with gorythe brutality of the rape scene in the original version left me sick to my stomach. in this version it its been extremely toned down and extended, losing its effectiveness. when the heroine comes back and starts killing her attackers its not nearly as satisfying. this movie reminds me of the "last house on the left" remake which also toned downed it raw brutality and replaced it with gory special effects.

    It's hard to I like a remake more than the original one, but this convinced me, beyond that the cast is better and conciliated well with the new character which placed, in case, the sheriff. The deaths were way better, but I found that the villains still suffered little, if I were the scriptwriter their souls would run off of their bodies.

The deaths were way better, but I found that the villains still suffered little, if I were the scriptwriter their souls would run off of their bodies. The humiliation through which she passes on this one is much bigger than the original. I loved the way she kills with refinements of cruelty more than the original, the new character is persuasive and the athletic leanness of the protagonist conciliates with what she needs to do. She may be defenceless like at the moment of rape, or she can be aloof and strong as in time of the escape and revenge. And do you wanna know something? I'd do more for less. Expand

    have you ever seen a snuff film? well if you wach this you pretty much can say you did. its not a bad movie . the premise is intresting and very simple . a girl goes up to a cabin to write a novel a group of guys rape her she gets revenge . simple enough right. the problem is the pacing with the rape scean . it just drags on waaaaay to long . i think it was around 30 min or so. i mean ihave you ever seen a snuff film? well if you wach this you pretty much can say you did. its not a bad movie . the premise is intresting and very simple . a girl goes up to a cabin to write a novel a group of guys rape her she gets revenge . simple enough right. the problem is the pacing with the rape scean . it just drags on waaaaay to long . i think it was around 30 min or so. i mean i get it we are suppose to feel horrable for this poor girl and can get behind her for what she is about to do but i felt 30 min of waching her get raped was just over doing it . i think spending 5 min on it would have been plenty. this is a very hard film to recommend and only saw it cause it was 99 cents on vodu . if you are easily disturbed i say avoid it .

    it feels weird defending the a film with a rape scene thats almost 30 minutes long. so ill try to do my best. the best thing about this film was Sarah Butler (the main actress), she plays the role really well despite having to deal with a really bad script and direction. the rape scene was done well (that fells really weird to say), it makes you feel really uncomfortable. the failure ofit feels weird defending the a film with a rape scene thats almost 30 minutes long. so ill try to do my best. the best thing about this film was Sarah Butler (the main actress), she plays the role really well despite having to deal with a really bad script and direction. the rape scene was done well (that fells really weird to say), it makes you feel really uncomfortable. the failure of this film comes from its writing, sometimes the dialogue is so bad and so inorganic that it just takes you out of the scene completely. another problem is that the first half of the film is really serious (it has to be) but the second half feels more ridiculous. the way that she gets revenge seems like it was taken out of a grindhouse film. i would have much preferred if the director picked one style and kept with it through the film. all in all its an okay film, it has its ups and downs. its definitely not for the squeamish, for some people many of the scenes can be extremely disturbing. 55%.

    Definitely one of the most disturbing movies I've seen in quite a while. It's pretty dull throughout the first half of the movie, and there's not much of a story, but man was the revenge brutal.... I think the new Last House on the Left did the rape and revenge thing a lot better (it's one of my favorite remakes), but I Spit on Your Grave is still okay if you like these sorts of movies andDefinitely one of the most disturbing movies I've seen in quite a while.

  1. In terms of real horror, nevermind sexual-politics provocation, "Grave" can neither re-create its predecessor's impact nor compete with stranger new beasts like Lars von Trier's "Antichrist."

    Its straight-ahead rape, humiliation and ingenious revenge competently executed but not aestheticized, the essential grunginess never overly slicked up.

    Exploitation pure and simple. But it's artistically redeeming exploitation. If you can handle it, see it.
