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… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is a film without a shred of artistic distinction. It lacks even simple craftsmanship. There is no possible motive for exhibiting it, other than the totally cynical hope that it might make money."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"in the dualistic contours of the rape-revenge subgenre, Zarchi finds a way to position his characters and viewers alike as both aggressors and victims. The results are neither comfortable nor pretty, but they are certainly confronting."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"The movie does wield crude and considerable power."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"A montagem peca pela falta de ritmo e as mortes são patéticas, mas os dois primeiros atos do filme chocam pela intensidade com que retratam a violência sofrida pela personagem de Keaton, que, aliás, oferece uma performance visceral."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Anyone seriously interested in the social impact of film should see this."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Where the original really comes crashing down into a heap of garbage, though, is in the revenge angle."
‑ , Bullz-Eye.com
"A precise and damning indictment of male sexuality, perhaps the most stridently anti-masculine film ever made by a male filmmaker."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Still an effective and shocking bit of revenge cinema..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Simply another crudely made, explicitly violent '70s-era exploitation flick."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"A classic in stupid and revolting filmmaking."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Gruesome and incredibly exploitative. However, for better or for worse, I Spit on Your Grave shows us the raw, shocking reality of rape, in all its bloody viciousness."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Purposefully unwatchable"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Salivating gore with classic title."
‑ Steve Crum, Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers
"This is one exploitation horror movie that lives up to its classic title."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"There is a successful motive at work in I Spit on Your Grave, though its methods of employing it are questionable. By more common standards it is morally reprehensible."
‑ Rumsey Taylor, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
