I Spit On Your Grave Remake Movie Review 176

I Spit On Your Grave is a 2010 remake of the 1978 movie of the same name. It stars Sarah Butler and Jeff Branson and it is directed by Steven R. Monroe.

If you have seen the original movie, then you will know the tale, but just in case you haven't,  here is what happens. A novelist, Jennifer Hills(Butler) comes to a small town to write her novel and rents a cabin in the woods. Of course, she encounters some backward  hicks(as always in these movies!)and they leer over her and ogle her. She insults their leader Johnny(Branson).The other two hicks and their mentally challenged friend, Matthew(Chad Lindberg) laugh at him and he is furious. Jennifer reaches her cabin and settles in. She is there a few days and then strange things happen such as noises at night.Johhny and his hicks come to her cabin with the intention of raping her which they do. One of the hicks, Stanley(Daniel Franzese) videos it(clever!).Oh yeah and the sheriff is in on it too. She escapes but gets caught by sheriff and she realises that they are all in on it. They leave her for dead when she jumps into the river. The hicks search for her body but don't find it.

The guys clean up all the evidence. A month later, Jennifer comes back to the cabin. She has been living in the woods. She decides to turn the tables on the guys and they begin to realise that she has come back. She sets about getting revenge on each of them and there are some pretty clever traps..It ends with Jennifer getting her 
back on them. If you liked the original, then you might watch this too, but I would have to say that it is a little more graphic than the original movie. I thought that there was too much emphasis on the gore and not much else, but that is just my opinion. I found all of the characters stupid and I thought that the heroine was irritating too. For a remake, this is better than some I could mention. At the end of the day, if you really want to see a movie like this, reach for the original and leave this one alone. If you just want a movie with gore and paper thin characters, this is for you. I found it okay, but not as good as the original movie. I give it a 5/10.
