Alternate titles : Day of the Woman, I Hate your Guts, The Rape and Revenge of Jennifer Hill

Tagline : "This woman has just cut, chopped, broken and burned four men beyond recognition. But no jury in America would ever convict her."

I Spit on Your GraveOne of the films I've had the toughest time sitting through, and that's saying something. The plot revolves around a young writer, Jennifer Hills (Cammille Keaton), who's decided to rent a lakeside cabin out in the country, whilst she works on her new novel.

However, her hopes for peace and quiet are shattered when she catches the attention of a group of young rednecks, who decide to have a little "fun" with her. Dragging her off into the woods, they proceed to spend the next ten minutes brutally gang raping her.

Staggering away, she tries to make it back to her cabin. Only to find they've decided to come back for seconds, and so she ends up being held down, battered and raped again. Leaveing her to crawl away, she finally manages to make it back to her cabin. Only to find her attackers are there waiting for her, and so she gets beaten and done over for a THIRD time.

Leaving her for dead, she manages to recover and proceeds to go out and get revenge on the group. Starting with a retarded chap named Matthew, who she lures back to her cabin and proceeds to hang from a tree. She then seduces the second attacker, who she also lures to the cabin, then castrates him in the bath. Leaving him to remark "Oooh, feels so good it hurts", not realising what she's done until a spurt of blood shoots up.

Finally, the last 2 members of the group realise that something's amiss and head on over in their motorboat to sort her out, leading to a final bloody confrontation. Only for them to get a taste of their own medicine.

Brutal, shocking and most definitely not for the fainthearted, the film is in many ways like a female Death Wish. However, many will undoubtedly be put off by the horrendous rape scenes (which total around 40 minutes in the uncut version) and were heavily cut down for the film's UK release. But even in the cut UK version, are still a pretty unbearable ordeal, which had me reaching for the fast-forward button. Although, the scenes where she wreaks a bloody revenge will undoubtedly have you cheering.

Overall Marks : 7/10.
