Savage and unrelenting.. utterly excellent. (by PoisonKeyblade)
Remakes of horror classics can easily make people angry, unless of course they find some way to improve on the original or just take the story in a completely different direction. I Spit On Your Grave, the newest in a long line of horror remakes takes a cue from some of the greats like last year's The Last House on the Left and 2003's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre among many others in changing the movie's original story into a slightly more complex but awesome gritty thrill ride with plenty of intense gore scenes and deeply intense moments to go around. The remake is directed by <more>
Steven R. Monroe from a script by Stuart Morse, and starring in the production are Sarah Butler, Chad Lindberg, Daniel Franzese, Jeff Branson, Rodney Eastman, and Andrew Howard, most of whom are relatively unknown and do very competent jobs in their respective roles.Going deep into seclusion to stay at a cabin and work on her newest novel, Jennifer Hills Butler expects a quiet few months in the middle of nowhere. After a brief run-in with a few folks from town, she is assaulted in her home and savagely raped, then left for dead. The bulk of the film deals with the aftermath of this event and Jennifer's fight to get revenge on those who wronged her.Having just watched the original, it was a real treat to see how much the filmmakers really put into giving it justice. There are several scenes that are lifted from the original, but this remake adds so many modern aspects to the plot that almost every inch of it is something fresh. I loved how the ending was a perfect wink to the original, although this one goes out on a much more awesome note.While the original had a few plot holes and some inconsistencies as well as a lack of any real edge-of-your-seat suspense, the final act of this remake pumps it into full gear with some superb kill scenes. The violence is incredibly extreme and admittedly made me cringe more than a few times. While the original's kills were less about the gore and more about the simplicity, the brutality of this remake never seems to hold back. Probably the most brutal of all is the ultimate ode to the most famous death scene in the original, which I won't mention here for fear of spoiling it for the uninitiated. The particular scene made me slightly queasy, but it's extremely effective.The female empowerment quotient that is so obvious and evident in the original is all the more powerful here; the audience almost has to question if the sort of overly sadistic torture that Jennifer grants her victims has been rightfully deserved. So much exposition is added to the story that it makes us care much more for Jennifer and root for her as soon as she comes back a bit later in the picture. The introduction to our characters and the subsequent horrors is a very great one; there are many great camera angles utilized, as our director clearly has skills behind the camera.The acting has very few holes and was actually pretty impressive. While few of these actors have been seen in major studio productions, they all manage to impress and mostly shatter audience expectations. Sarah Butler delivers her lines with a sarcastic witty nuance that few actresses with as little experience would have been able to pull off effectively. The hillbillies are all particularly horrific, but it's Jeff Branson that really shines here. He has massive charisma on the screen, and several scene-stealing lines throughout the movie. It's a shame he hasn't had the chance to do more with his career yet, but I easily see a bright future ahead for him. The rest of the cast is not without their own respective merits, and they carry the film's crisp runtime easily on their shoulders.This movie was above and beyond one of the best horror films so far this year. It's incredibly brutal and deeply controversial with its depictions of death and rape, but it's message is a very interesting one. The acting and direction are exceedingly perfect and the movie's final act is sure to be remembered. To say it surpasses the original movie by a country mile would not be inaccurate; I Spit On Your Grave is a hugely entertaining and outrageous thrill ride.
I AM Woman Hear Me Snip That Off! (by SouthSideChgo)
SouthSide's not a fan of the "chick flick" movie genre. Nor is she a fan of classic movies updated for the millenial generation. However the updated and unrated version of I Spit On Your Grave is, in her opinion, the ultimate chick flick ...on suspenseful revenge by a woman horribly wronged featured in any horror movie. Believe, this reviewer, Jigsaw would probably get very squeamish like many of the men who attended last night's screening from viewing the graphic, horrific yet creative and inventive ways the main character, Jennifer Hills Sarah Butler got her <more>
revenge.SouthSide vividly remembers the original I Spit On Your Grave 1978 and was quite shocked and intrigued by the graphically intense subject matter. She skipped viewing the 2009 loosely-based teen version titled Jennifer's Body starring Megan Fox . Yet in 2010, comes two versions of the same movie rated and unrated of I Spit On Your Grave still retaining the original premise - a young woman viscously attacked and assaulted ...brutally raped and then left for dead ...but with a modern twist. Unlike the '78 version, this new version involved five men attacking our victim-turned-heroine ...there's more suspense and intense drama throughout the movie which definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat ...and plenty of creepy movie mood music to add the element of surprise that that there's something horrible lurking around the corner. SouthSide liked how director Steven R. Munroe used a pseudo-documentary camera style which moves with the characters throughout the film as well as sets up the scenes about to happen next instead of stationary camera shots. Though it might feel a slow drag towards the gripping brutal rape scenes this gives the audience a chance to familiarize themselves with the six main characters and a few minor ones involved in the storyline.Within the unrated version of this movie, be prepared for not only scenes in which Jennifer was brutally raped but assaulted by three men Johnny - chauvinistic pig, Andy on harmonica, and Stanley - the nasty voyeur before the rape with Matthew, a mentally handicapped who refuses at first but is goaded into raping Jennifer. Add the fifth man, a sadistic sheriff with a pregnant wife and young daughter into this terrifying mix and it turns into a graphic scene with most of the rape nicely blacked out ...yes, you have to use your imagination in what the others did to her. This reviewer enjoyed how the director gave the audience a sense of calm when life returns to "normal" for out bad guys after unable to find Jennifer's body in the river. This where the "fun" of getting her revenge begins ...and NO ONE is spared from her wrath not even Matthew who's the only one feeling a bit remorseful for what he did to her. The others do get their just "desserts" in the most creative ways as she systemically picks them off one by one. And the way she does it literally had the men during this screening either squirming in their seats from the intense horror scenes especially during Stanley's and Johnny's deaths or actually walking out of the theater waiting for their dates/spouses/girlfriends outside . Yes, horror fans, the sheriff gets the worse punishment out of all of them. Hell knows no fury like a scorned woman bent on revenge! Justice served with a smile....SouthSide has never seen SO many men running out the theater those who "survived" the screening with all their bits and pieces still intact when the lights were turned back on. Even the critics attending the screening were NOWHERE to be found except outside the theater ..."I AM woman hear me roar" probably had that disturbing effect on them, SouthSide supposes.So be careful, men, this isn't your ordinary "dinner and a date" movie. The unrated version is definitely NOT for the squeamish and/or children under 17.Oh one last thing - look for hidden clues referencing to the original throughout this movie ...plenty to be spotted...
Not the 78 version thank god (by dominicsantos-867-482826)
I walked into this movie after having read "Unrated, sex violence, rape" but this usually means violence by innuendo. This film was very graphic and I can imagine disturbing to the more sensitive right wing, Christian population who might view it as gratuitous or pornography; it isn't. Rape is violent; it is brutal; it isn't over in a minute; and a little soap and water doesn't wash it away. It doesn't necessarily happen only to "loose women or bad girls" and that is what makes this movie unsettling to others. As a writer of similar stories I can appreciate <more>
the detail of the story and the creative mind who determined how revenge would be met out. All in all both visually and mentally disturbing; I believe that is the point of horror films.
I must admit, I haven't seen the original version of this film. I went into the Fantasia festival screening of this Meir Zarchi produced remake fresh, with no personal comparisons to make to his landmark picture both he and new director Steven R. Monroe were in attendance, along with lead actress Sarah Butler and producer Lisa Hansen . And not knowing many more specifics than the 30 year+ legends of this story. I can say I was impressed with what new writer Stuart Morse and the fine cast have presented and how the talented director interpreted it! Be warned, those who don't like gore <more>
or explicit depictions of heinous events. This is probably not the flick you should check out! But if you're strong stomached enough to handle recent "torture porn" that has little or no conscience in it's artistry which this will be dismissed as by many, but I think it's really NOT , then you might dare to watch.Sarah Butler's Jennifer Hills character is a young writer seeking serenity to help the process of completing her newest book. What she has forced upon her soon after arriving and adjusting to the rustic peace of a lakeside rental cabin are amongst the most disturbing scenes I have ever witnessed and I've seen many intense, horrifying films in my life. Her performance for me ranks with the great turns of fellow big screen rape survivors, such as Ned Beatty in Deliverance and Jodie Foster in The Accused AND fellow Fantasia breakout star Amanda Fuller in Red White & Blue ! Butler's shattering, heart stopping and completely believable performance of a woman in this nightmarish ordeal is never exploitative and neither is Monroe's direction of the attack. The raw brutality of sexual assault is shown in the proper context. That is, a crime of power, domination and humiliation. I had much doubt before the show about how I'd react to these moments. And my feelings are Butler is so good in the role originated by Camille Keaton that this remake will become a worthy debate subject fuse for the limits of extreme subject matter in modern mainstream film. One might not like ISOYG as a work of art about deadly serious hypotheses on crime, but nobody can find artistic fault with Butler's terrific work here. Bravo, Sarah!Chad Lindberg has almost as difficult a task, portraying a mentally challenged man who's compelled by the thugs he grew up with uniformly great Daniel Franzese, Jeff Branson, Rodney Eastman and a new contender for the most despicable poster boy for smiling evil, Andrew Howard to lead the gang rape proceedings. His take on the fragile, but still capable of unspeakable violence Matthew is heartbreaking in it's delicacy AND ferocity. Watching him and Butler together during the prolonged attack was among the most painful moments for me. Lindberg delivers a multi-dimensional, impressive turn and his talent gives it an unforgettable resonance.Monroe has a long attachment to ISOYG and realizes he will be lambasted for directing a new take on one of cinema's most reviled and legendary tales. What he gives us is not a hollow 2nd generation quickie to cash in on it's predecessor's infamous name, but a searing, realistic effort and for that I admire the job he has done here. It's a man unleashing a vision of a female's violation, then vengeance, with plenty of reason to be. The 21st century will give us hard to watch epics, but this was truly a worthwhile experience for me. I won't elaborate on what happens post-assault, but will say anyone who can see their mother, daughter, sister, friend in Jennifer Hills and her suffering will be very interested in her revenge and how THAT plays out. It was incredibly well handled!The announcement this film would be released this fall in it's uncut form, not bowing to the 100+ cuts the MPAA requires for the more commercially desirable R rating, raised many eyebrows. I hope if it indeed is released unaltered, there will be enough moviegoers to give this a fair viewing. You can already imagine the hateful reviews some are ready to write and publish merely hearing the title. I just want the market for those filmmakers not bowing down to the antiquated and far from perfect MPAA ratings system to have an alternative in this day and age.
I Spit On Your Grave - compliments the original and raises the bar (by Dan-1855)
After seeing this remake of the original at the Austin FantasticFest, I loved what I saw. This certainly complimented the original and then took it to a whole new level. Acting is much better, the pacing is certainly improved, characters are more refined, sound design is crisp, cinematically it is right in your face and looks great, all the motivations of the characters make sense, and there are certainly a few unpredictable surprises. While some woman may have a hard time getting through the rape scene...close your eyes for a minute and please stick around. The revenge turn will make any man <more>
cover their groin and cringe nervously. There are many movies that I really can't recall shortly after watching; this is one that will be burned into memory. If you like revenge movies, see this movie.
This 2010 remake of 'I Spit On Your Grave Unrated ' is no longer on at the cinema as far as I'm aware, but if you didn't see the movie and you're reading this review contemplating whether or not to buy the DVD, then here's a review for you.... and yes, you should buy it!! : I'll review this movie in comparison to the original as you will probably only be reading this if you're a horror fan and so consequently would more than likely have seen or have the 1978 version. The original is of course an undoubted classic and a shocking horror movie and I have every <more>
respect for it, but I have to say that this remake is far superior and here's why: It has much better production values; it's beautifully filmed, it had a small but decent budget and it looks slick and very atmospheric with wonderful lighting throughout. The male actors are totally superb and scarily believable; serious kudos to each and every one of them especially Jeff Branson and Andrew Howard ; they are far, far more convincing than the cartoony, generic red-necks of the original. As for the female lead, I could never take anything away from Camille Keatons brave and gut-wrenching performance in the 1978 version, so let's just say that Sarah Butler is a wonderful find and without a doubt this actress does absolute justice to the role!! The storyline is basically faithful to the original but rightly so has been updated to include modern technology. I've read a few moans about the lead character Jennifer Hill accidentally dropping her mobile phone down the toilet thereby rendering her cut off from help, but come on!! something like that had to happen or else there wouldn't be much of a story now would there??!!! The addition of a new character in the form of the Sheriff is very welcome, providing a nice if a tad predictable twist. For what it is, his character is so well constructed that it's a genuine treat to watch every scene with him in it.The rape scene is mercifully shorter and more compact than the original and I think that's probably a good thing. Perhaps by shortening this scene it lacks a little of the impact of the original, but it still works extremely well and the utter horror of what the poor girl endures is more than satisfactorily conveyed. If anything the humiliating lead-up to the rape is almost more powerful and horrifying to watch than the rape itself which again I feel betters the original.Finally, the revenge....I've read several reviews bemoaning the fact that in this version the victim does not seduce her attackers as she did in the original but instead just steams in and 'captures' them. Well excuse me, but after what that character endured I just don't think that she or any other woman could then sexually offer themselves up to a foul monster of a man who has robbed them of all their humanity and who has defiled, broken and violated them in such a brutal and horrendous way. The two female friends that I watched the movie with are in total agreement with me on that point too.Some have sneeringly described what happens next as 'torture porn'... Well SO FRICKIN' WHAT??!! Those characters deserved everything they got and as far as I'm concerned the worse the better!! It's a horror film for goodness sake, people do actually want to see some gore and horror when they watch a 'horror' film!!! As the type of guy who lives to see 'baddies' get what they deserve in a movie and LOATHES it when they don't!! , the fate of the rapists was personally my fave part of the film and if anything I would have like to have seen even more, especially the scene where Johnny get's his just deserts! I'm guessing that budgetary constraints prevented us from actually seeing ole Johnny get the snip, but I would have liked to have seen something similar to the ending of 'Hostel 2' where that nasty piece of work get's de-junked, but you can't have everything I guess!!! The other killings are imaginative and brilliant and are executed if you'll excuse the pun in a far more thought-out, well crafted and visually exciting way than in the original.Some people think I'm weird cuz I tend always to prefer re-makes over the originals The Hills Have Eyes, The Last House On The Left, Dawn Of The Dead, etc ...Well DUH!!! It's because they're loads better!!!! and believe me, great as the original is, this remake of 'I Spit On Your Grave' is truly loads better. Whether you've seen the original or you haven't, if you love great horror films and if you love great re-makes, then this is a Grade A movie - see it, buy it, then add it with pride to your DVD horror collection!!!
Genuinely repulsive film - but that's a good thing! (by rhaynes1974)
If ever there was a candidate for banning a film it's this. It's not giving anything away to reveal that there's a rape scene in this film but be warned it puts anything you saw in "Last House on the Left" the remake to shame. Graphic doesn't even begin to describe what the audience are subjected to by the voyeuristic intentions of director Stephen Monroe as he puts the audience in the front row seat for almost two hours of pure abuse.But this is a good thing. Surely rape is visceral, brutal and sadistic and this film embodies all these elements. And once the <more>
reported revenge begins it's even more brutal than anything done to her.Superb and bold performance from Sarah Butler in a role that is probably considered by most to be career suicide. When her character takes revenge it truly is the stuff that nightmares are made of and some scenes made me cringe for at least an hour afterwards.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.One of the few examples of a remake vastly improving on the original.
'Vile bag of garbage', 'Misunderstood masterpiece' or neither? (by Hellmant)
'I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE' 2010 : Four Stars Out of Five Modern remake of one of the most controversial films of all time 'DAY OF THE WOMAN' which was it's original limited release title in 1978, it was later retitled 'I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE' to capitalize on it's notoriety when it was given a major release in 1980 . The film and it's 1978 predecessor both deal with rape, savage torture and murder. Both films have been highly criticized because of this with critics like Roger Ebert giving both films a zero star rating and calling the original a "vile bag <more>
of garbage". Almost an equal number of supporters of the original film , including high profile critics, have raised their voices in defense of the film as well, with many labeling it a misunderstood masterpiece. Opposers of the film claim that it's man hating with reports of some men walking out of the theater in disgust at both films and some also accuse the film of glorifying violence against women for it's violent rape scenes . Defenders of the films claim the movies are 'pro women' feminism and cathartic. People have been debating these issues for thirty two years and they'll probably go on debating them for longer than that and that's a good thing. If a movie causes that much discussion you have to give it some respect just for that.Both films tell the story of a writer named Jennifer Hills played by Sarah Butler in the new film and Camille Keaton in the original, Keaton is the grand-niece of Buster Keaton and won a Best Actress award for the role at the 1978 Catalonian International Film Festival who heads to a cabin in the woods to work on her next novel. Once there she attracts a lot of attention from some hooligan hippies which eventually escalates in them braking into the cabin, raping her repeatedly and leaving her for dead. She unknowingly survives the viscous attacks and seeks out brutally sadistic revenge on all of the men involved, including a mentally handicap young man who was coerced into involvement by his buddies.The remake was directed by Steven R. Monroe and written by Stuart Morse. The writer and director of the original film, Meir Zarchi, served as an executive producer on the film. Zarchi has said that he was inspired to make the original film after coming across a young rape victim in New York and escorting her to the police which he says was the wrong decision considering how incompetent they were in the matter and later the hospital for assistance. He defends the violence of the film as being completely necessary and rejects any criticisms that it is exploitative.As far as the remake compares to the original film it's technically far superior on every level; it's better filmed, acted, written and directed the original film had to manage with a much smaller budget though . The new film also shortens the rape scenes, in comparison to the much more explicit original, and relies more on psychologically implied imagery which I think was a smarter decision . It also elaborates and extends the violent revenge scenes with much more creative deaths much like many popular horror films . Where as the first half is more realistic and believable the second half branches much more into 'grindhouse' style revenge fantasy. While the film is much better than the original in all those ways it'll never be as remembered and cherished as a cult classic by fans.I personally don't agree with the film's critics or it's supporters. I don't think you're supposed to necessarily agree with the heroine's actions or condone them and I definitely don't think you're intended to agree with the assailants' actions that's a ridiculous argument . I think the film raises a lot of thoughts most of them unpleasant and discussion which like I said is something the films deserve credit for. A movie should never be judged by the actions of the characters within it, so however disgusting and disturbing they are and in these films they're atrocious it doesn't mean that they're bad films. I think both films are well made to a certain extent and effective at what they attempt to do. They're definitely not for everyone and very hard to watch but they're also memorable and dialogue inducing.Watch our review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v AgaAYiwY0g0
I have a distant memory of the original film so I knew where this story was going to. And seeing Hollywood has been doing a lot of bad remakes the last few years, I thought here we go again, B grader! Val Kilmer territory! But I was wrong, it get's to it slowly, but hell it picks up fast! For the feminist out there avoid this at all cost, and for those with bad stomach control, don't have your dinner before hand!The acting was spot on by all actors, enough gore to keep Ted Bundy smiling, and if brutal is your thing this film will get your vote.At that my vote for this solid <more>
