Original Title:

I Spit On Your Grave

There aren't many films that make The Last House On The Left seem positively tame, but - sorry to say - here's one. Thematically plagiarising the former, this vile, odious little haemorrhoid sees Buster Keaton's great-niece Camille (seriously) get brutally raped by a gang of rednecks for (again, seriously) some 40 gruesome minutes.

But, hey, thatís okay, because then she gets her own back, on a vengeful rampage in which she mutilates the gonads of the perpetrators beyond repair. Atrociously scripted, shot and acted, it's an excercise in adject misery for all involved - including, nay, especially for - the audience. We should just be grateful this release has actually been trimmed.

Really, really bad. It's not good on any level. Not a good horror, not a good revenge flick, it's porly constructed and has absolutely nothing to say or offer. Utter shit.
