“I Spit on Your Grave” (2010)

It’s not really good, but it’s not as abhorrent as I was expecting. For the record, I haven’t seen the original yet, so I can’t say how this compares to it. Filmmaking wise, it’s competent (the director certainly understands mood, atmosphere, reincorporation and pacing), the acting is just fine, especially from Sarah Butler, and the kill scenes in the third act are creative. There are much better revenge films out there, but fans of grindhouse horror will definitely get their fix, just so long as they’re willing to sit through a lot of slow burn build-up to get to the no-holds-barred gore they came to see.
