I Spit on Your Grave

Writer Jennifer Hills (Butler) 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 depraved 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 can kill her, Jennifer sacrifices her broken and beaten body to a raging river that washes her away. As time passes, the men slowly stop searching for her body and try to go back to life as usual. But that isn’t about to happen. Against all odds, Jennifer Hills survived her ordeal. Now, with hell bent vengeance, Jennifer’s sole purpose is to turn the tables on these animals and to inflict upon them every horrifying and torturous moment they carried out on her… only much, much worse. –imdb

For those who doesn’t know, this is a remake of the 1978 movie of the same name. And I’ve not watched the original version. But I must say I really loved this one. I’ve heard this one is more brutal and gruesome than the original which i may warn you, it is.

Surely rape is visceral, brutal and sadistic and this film embodies all these elements. And once the reported revenge begins it’s even more brutal than anything done to her.I love when Jennifer(Sarah Butler) tortured the gang in almost the same way they did to her. That’s what REVENGE is. I especially love the scene when a guy tied on tub, he said:”Please” and Jennifer replied:”Please is what I said to you, but you said suck it bitch!” Another scene that the sheriff begged for her daughter, he said:”She is just an innocent girl.” and Jennifer replied:”So am I.” This is one of my favorite scenes too. I enjoy the revenge as I think nothing is better than letting those who hurt you take back what they gave you. Besides, I was surprised and deeply impressed by the last killing scene – which Matthew pull the rope and killed the sheriff and himself. And not to forget Jennifer’s creepy smile at the end.

Still of Sarah Butler in I Spit on Your Grave: Unrated

Superb and bold performance from Sarah Butler in a role that is probably considered by most to be career suicide. We can feel the pain that Jennifer went through. When her character takes revenge it truly is the stuff that nightmares are made of and some scenes will surely make you cringe after you watch the movie. I could really feel a sense of happiness when when Jennifer started killing all those men brutally.

I’ve only one complaint about the movie. If only the director had added 5 minutes showing how Jennifer survived after jumping into the river and getting herself together then it would have been a lot better.

After all these said, watch this one at your peril.This is highly recommended only for those who sit through a showing of cannibal holocaust without vomiting. Strong stuff indeed. But if you stood though Saw, then you won’t have any problem watching this.
