I Spit on Your GraveDirector: Meir Zarchi
Camille Keaton, grand-niece of Buster and star of the thriller Cosa Avete Fatto a Solange?, appears here as Jenny, an aspiring novelist who rents a cabin in the Connecticut woods. Three rednecks at a local gas station and a retarded delivery boy seem quite friendly at first, and many viewers wonder just where director Meir Zarchi is going with the story. Then he drops them 200,000 feet right into the center of Hell for the longest, nastiest, and most brutal gang-rape in motion-picture history. Zarchi takes his time with this scene, not for the sake of titillation, but to make the audience feel the absolute horror of Jenny's plight. She is humiliated, sodomized over a rock, and brutally beaten in the middle of the woods. Then she crawls home, naked and bruised, only to get a repeat performance with her new novel shredded, her stomach kicked, and a bottle rammed violently inside her. The experience leaves Jenny shell-shocked, a cipher completely detached from reality. She hangs the delivery boy from a tree, gorily castrates the ringleader in a bathtub, and dispatches the other two rapists with an axe and an outboard motor. Eron Tabor, Richard Pace, Anthony Nicholls, and Gunter Kleeman co-star.

I think I spit on your grave is powerful and wakes you up about life and women when raped changes you on the inside.I'm happy she hunts them down and they get pay back for the demonic and ruthless rape and beaten and cut up of this lovely young lady,thank god its only a movie but this kind of thing is going on day to day to women and little children to,this is a must to watch and very deep and moving to the heart and mind its self, you have to open your eyes the real life people.
you make valid points... but did you know this was only a movie? it's not based on true facts and i know this does happen maybe not to the limit like in the movie. but if you were raped like that would you wait for our failed legal system to wait for a trial to waste your time sitting home while someone bails hims out?? not me i would kill the bastard or bastards like she did even worse. she did what all woman would do in that situation, go out of blood... but it's a movie and i'm sure the movie would be boring had she gone to court and did it the legal way.. no one would be talking about this movie.. it would be boring... remember not all movies need to be up to date with what you would do in reality... thats what we watch movies.. entertainment value.
A rather licentious friend of mine once recommended this movie to me. I have done a lot of work at my University in sexual assault prevention and awareness. I agree that the legal system is flawed and that there needs to be more dialogue on fixing this problem. "I Spit On Your Grave" is maybe the wrong direction for this dialogue. I had to fast forward past the rape because it was so graphic. The revenge, while justified, was automatic and didn't focus on the social reasons why this woman couldn't receive a conviction against her rapists. Over all, this movie fails to provide a beneficial social commentary and is more interested in arousing the worst aspects of our society and in fact I believe encourages the mentality that leads to rape.
This is one of the most disgusting movies I have ever seen. It is explicit and degrades women. I do not advise it.
