I Spit on your Grave, or Day of the Woman, definitely fits the bill of extreme cinema, still causing controversy today. We are going to tackle it now, in the latest of our series on controversial movies.
The story finds Jennifer, a writer from the big city, enjoying the countryside while she writes her first novel. She ends up raped by four men, repeatedly, and left for dead. She doesn’t die and manages to get back on her feet.
The second half of the movie is where she exacts revenge on the four men, making sure they suffer as much as she did before they die. There is one shocking scene of a castration that would make any man wince.
Shawn and NGL sit down and talk about the movie and how it was put together. It is not an easy movie to watch, but still stands up today and is definitely one of the most controversial movies ever made.
We’ve got some more controversial movies to talk about, but is there anything we’ve missed or you would like us to talk about? So far, we have done:
- The Human Centipede
- Thriller A Cruel Picture
- Cannibal Holocaust/Ferox
- Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
- American History X
We will be doing Salo: 120 Days in Sodom and A Serbian Film soon, now that we have finished with I Spit On Your Grave. Are there any others we should cover?
