I Spit on Your Grave (1978) Review:

“I Spit On Your Grave” is a controversial rape & revenge cult classic from Meir Zarchi. The film was very notorious for its scenes of intense sexual violence towards women, causing the film to be banned for many years in several countries. The film remained a cult film amongst horror fans for many years until it was no longer banned and the release of the remake in 2010 directed by Steven R. Monroe reintroduced a new generation of horror fans to Meir Zarchi’s cult classic.

The film was shot on a very low budget, however, the violence and effects are very realistic and the actress Camille Keaton does a very good job of portraying the rape victim. The violent scenes are brutal and very realistic for a 70s film. Even for nowadays standards, it would most likely offend a lot of people.

Overall the film is very well made for its use of low budget and realism, though it is not an easy film to watch. I would not recommend it to casual horror fans because it shows the true nature of rape and what it can psychologically do to a person. But if you’re looking for something to test your stomach, or if you simply enjoy the 70s exploitation genre, give this one a shot.
