    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    As vile, unredeeming and thoroughly unpleasant experiences go, I Spit on Your Grave at least has one thing interesting about it. It's a document of the most paranoid fantasies that urban, Northern people have about a rural Southern people. show more

    John DeFore The Hollywood Reporter

    In terms of real horror, nevermind sexual-politics provocation, "Grave" can neither re-create its predecessor's impact nor compete with stranger new beasts like Lars von Trier's "Antichrist." show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    Exploitation pure and simple. But it's artistically redeeming exploitation. If you can handle it, see it. show more

    Neither boring enough to qualify as pornography nor vital enough to generate a controversy. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    This despicable remake of the despicable 1978 film "I Spit on Your Grave" adds yet another offense: a phony moral equivalency. show more

    Joshua Rothkopf Time Out New York

    Harsh-voiced Sarah Butler lends zero personality to her avenging antiheroine, and the retributive torture sequences approach "Saw" levels of unlikelihood. show more

    Now it's just some thin chick in her underwear, kicking butt. show more

    Jeannette Catsoulis The New York Times

    Female-empowerment fantasy or just plain prurience, "Grave" is extremely efficient grindhouse. If there is any message here at all, it's don't mess with a novelist: being creative is her job. show more

    Ronnie Scheib Variety

    Its straight-ahead rape, humiliation and ingenious revenge competently executed but not aestheticized, the essential grunginess never overly slicked up. show more

    Chicago Reader

    What it doesn't have is the first movie's primal understanding of patriarchal violence and feminist rage, as both moral horror and exploitation gold. As a result, this is a much easier movie to watch. show more

    If you like the idea of an avenging angel seeking retribution, this is extremely well done. The Director takes great care with the assault on Jennifer so it doesn't feel gratuitous in any way - showing us exactly what we need to see. We see the attack from Jennifer's point of view and both her strength and vulnerability throughout her ordeal is performed beautifully by Sarah Butler. The sequence where she drops from the bridge is one of the most strikingly visual scenes I've seen in a film, the brutality manifested in every broken step Jennifer takes juxtaposed against the beauty of the woods. There is a very different starkness and grayness to the second half of the movie where the assailants are struck down. Who would of thought a remake of this particular movie could be so tastefully done! And all of the acting is top notch by the guys as well.
