I Spit On Your GraveThere are plenty of discussions these days about the flood of remakes on the market, but very few movies present a better argument against the reboot/remake craze than I Spit On Your Grave. The original, which was also known as Day of the Woman, was of a very particular era and genre; I Spit On Your Grave was a subset of the '70s exploitation flicks that populated the grindhouses of New York City or drive-ins looking to make ends meet, the rape/revenge genre.

What's shown in the trailer for the original I Spit On Your Grave, which you can see here, is an interesting contrast to the new trailer. In both stories, writer Jennifer Hall (Camille Keaton, Buster's granddaughter) comes to the country to work on her book but instead finds herself raped brutally and repeatedly by a group of local men. But in the original trailer, the emphasis is on how Hall lures the men to their violent deaths by pretending she really is interested in them, only to strike them at their most vulnerable. Like, say, in the bathtub. It toes the line of softcore titillation -- that is, until you see she's got a knife in her hand.
