I watched this film largely out of curiosity. My curiosity has now been satisfied – it's complete rubbish. The original 1978 film was titled 'Day Of The Woman', then re-titled 'I Spit On Your Grave' for the re-release in 1980 to jump on the rising tide of notoriety as one of the so-called 'video nasties'. The original film is a rape / revenge story: lone woman violently raped by several men and later returns to wreak revenge. End of story.
The 2010 remake is based on the earlier film. What else can I say? It follows the same pattern but is even more silly: how can such a slightly built woman physically overpower and handle 5 sturdy men and manoeuvre them into restraints ready for the revenge scenes? Just silly.
It's certainly not a horror film – there is no suspense, no shocks, just several lengthy, boring, unrealistic and distasteful scenes. However, it's a tough watch but probably not as offensive as the original was in its day.
Be aware the UK 18 certificate film has been cut and edited to remove some of the nudity – pity that it wasn't cut by another 104 minutes, so reducing it to zero. Unfortunately I can't gives it 0/5 stars, so I will have to give it an undeserved 1/5 stars. Don't waste your time. And there's no grave spitting here.
