Arrow in the Head:
First thing’s first- I’ve never seen the original I Spit On Your Grave, nor do I ever intend to. While I love lean seventies thrillers (like Straw Dogs, Race With the Devil, etc), the little I’ve seen of the original I Spit On Your Grave makes me very uncomfortable. Now, I don’t want it to seem like I’m adopting some kind of moral high ground. I’m not, nor am I a prude. I’m just a bit of a wimp when it comes to films with hardcore, excruciatingly lengthy rape scenes. I wasn’t able to get through Irreversible, and hearing how brutal the original I Spit was, I had my doubts as to whether or not I’d even be able to sit through this film.
