Tonight's Viewing: I Spit on Your Grave (1978)

aka Day of the Woman

Believe it or not, this will be my first time watching this notorious exploitation flick. It's one of the few horror films I've never had the desire to watch (another one is Irreversible). I can watch all the goriest stuff imaginable, but rape-revenge movies bother me and I guess I'd rather watch make-believe horror rather than stuff that can and does really happen in the real world. 

However, with the impending I Spit on Your Grave remake I figured it was finally time to give the original a looksie and find out what all the hubbub is about.

Wish me luck on this endurance test and I'll let you know what I think!


  1. I think you'll find it very disappointing and very amusing towards the end. It's pretty bad and dated now.

    Don't bother with "Irreversible". I watched it a couple of weeks ago and it wasn't all that either. I even left the DVD running. made dinner for myself, and the rape scene was still going on when I got back. Talk about dragging things out. :(

  2. I've had this one sitting on my "To Do" list for a while, as I've never seen it either. Very interested to hear your perspective.
