I Spit on Your Grave is part of what is commonly known as a Rape and Revenge film. Someone is wronged, tortured or raped and in the next act rain down unholy vengeance on the perpetrators. It is a voyeuristic exercise.
This is new version is better acted and for a bit seemed to be shooting from the same script. The acting is much better and that only makes the scenes seem worse. The violence is more than recall from the original as well, though I think there were actually more scenes of brutality in the original.
I would have liked to have contrasted it more with the original, but stayed up too late watching this one.
Tally: Watched 18, New 14
