A remake of the controversial 1979 cult classic, I Spit on Your Grave retells the horrific tale of writer Jennifer Hills, who takes a retreat from the city to a charming cabin in the woods to start on her next book. But Jennifer's presence in the small town attracts the attention of a few morally deprived locals who set out one night to teach this city girl a lesson. They break into her cabin to scare her. However, what starts out as terrifying acts of humiliation and intimidation, quickly and uncontrollably escalates into a night of physical abuse and torturous assault. But before they… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"By honing the jagged edges of Meir Zarchi's cheap and nasty rape-revenge shocker into slick entertainment, this unwelcome remake improves technically on the 1978 original, while retaining all that was sleazy and repellent..."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Female-empowerment fantasy or just plain prurience, Grave is extremely efficient grindhouse."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"It's intentionally, efficiently ugly, through and through."
‑ John Gholson, Cinematical
"It's not that they don't deserve punishment, but the scale here is so out-of-whack with what we're shown, with one battered, tiny girl devising and executing tortures that would have required several construction crews and a team of black ops agents."
‑ Adam Lippe, Examiner.com
"As dubious as the original, though easier to watch in several ways."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
"Neither boring enough to qualify as pornography nor vital enough to generate a controversy."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"I Spit on Your Grave is exploitation pure and simple. But it's artistically redeeming exploitation. If you can handle it, see it."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"This remake exists in that movie's shadow and, instead of attempting to outshock the original, ups the elaborate revenge aspect and gives you something to shamelessly cheer for."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"Pretty much across the board the characters are more interesting in the remake, but that's really only because they actually are characters to some degree, as opposed to the caricatures presented in the '78 version."
‑ Ross Ruediger, Bullz-Eye.com
"Mostly well made, with solid performances, but there's very little that's fresh or original about this remake."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"An attempt to trade on its predecessor's reputation without really grappling with the questions it raises, Monroe's version merely seems shallow, cynical and extremely ugly."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"In addition to all the obvious things that are disgusting about this movie, I Spit on Your Grave is trying to get us to hate each other. Hate it instead. It makes more sense and the hatred is much more deserved."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Nada mais é do que uma narrativa repleta de misoginia, preconceito e estupidez."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"If you look at it the right way, I Spit on Your Grave is powerful stuff, much better to be faced and discussed than dismissed and ignored."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Gory and violent without really hitting home in either a visceral or meaningful way, and there are chunks that are actually quite dull."
‑ Mike Edwards, What Culture
