I Spit On Your Grave is a 2010 American rape-and-revenge horror film, and a remake of the controversial 1978 cult film Day of the Woman (better known by its re-release title, I Spit on Your Grave). It was directed by Steven R. Monroe, and stars Sarah Butler, Chad Lindberg, Daniel Franzese, Rodney Eastman, Jeff Branson, and Andrew Howard.

Plot

A writer who is brutalized during her cabin retreat seeks revenge on her attackers, who left her for dead.

Why It Sucks

  1. The film has a lot more graphic material than the original did.
  2. The story is arguably even more boring than the original.
  3. Dull characters.
  4. The film is not scary.
  5. It relies a lot on gratuitous violence and gore. Violence and blood doesn't make a movie scary.
  6. The premise of this version of the original is copy and paste and even more bizarre than the original film.
  7. The poster is extremely bland, ugly and inappropriate.
  8. It was released thirty two years too late, thus making it stale for a remake.
  9. Like the original film, it deals with sexual assault.
  10. Although the death scenes are creative, they're pointless.
  11. The cast looks bored out of their minds in certain scenes.
  12. The unrated cut is even more disturbing than the theatrical cut.
  13. ONE OF THE MALE'S D*CK GETS CUT OFF!

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Like Camille Keaton, Sarah Butler gives a good performance as Jennifer.
  2. The death scenes are more creative.

Reception

Like with the original 1978 version of I Spit On Your Grave, Roger Ebert awarded the 2010 version a zero star rating. The film currently holds a 34% on Rotten Tomatoes with an average rating of 3.1 out of 5.

Box Office

The film only grossed $572, 809 against its $2 million budget and was declared a box office flop.
