Format:DVD
New York writer Jennifer (Camille Keaton, the grand-niece of physical comedy genius Buster Keaton) retreats to a cabin in the country to write her first novel, but her peace and train of thought is interrupted by four men she meets upon arrival, who go on to gang-rape and commit savagery on her three times before leaving her for dead (one of the guys was supposed to kill her so she couldn't grass them up but he couldn't go through with it and faked her death instead).
However, Jennifer soon recovers from her ordeal sufficiently enough to enact some very painful revenge on each of her four attackers, one by one...
Banned in the UK until 2001, it was only finally granted an 18 certificate in that year when the BBFC ordered just over seven minutes of cuts to the rape scenes. When this newer version was resubmitted to the BBFC in 2003 with some of the previously cut footage reframed to put Jennifer off the bottom of the screen, they passed all except just 41 seconds of cuts, making this the most complete version we have ever had in the UK. While it's still shocking, the reframed footage is noticeably blurrier and the wrongness of the screen layout is very obvious. Also, not being able to see the victim has undoubtedly muted the effect, making her vengeful attacks later seem over-the-top compared to what it might have been had the censored footage been left in its original uncut form, but I guess on this occasion the BBFC's hands are tied and that we should think ourselves lucky that we got the film officially released at all.
Many have accused it of glorifying rape, which is not the case at all. If anything, it shows just how horrific it really is, and how damaging it is, physically and emotionally, to the victim.

By A Customer HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
When movies first came out on video there were two legendary exploitation films I had to track down. One was "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and the other was "I Spit on Your Grave," which is actually the more memorable film of the pair overall (although I do grant the highest place to the "hook" scene in TCM). Director Meir Zarchi's 1978 film has become rather infamous, since critics hated it, audiences were outraged, and the film was banned in Germany and Great Britain. The story, such as it is, finds Jennifer Hill (Camille Keaton, Buster's grand-niece) out in the woods of Connecticut to work on a novel when she crosses the path of some local boys who decide she should be the first sexual partner for their mentally-disabled friend. When he cannot complete the rape, his friends do it for him. Then they decide that they are not done with Jennifer.
At issue are not Jennifer's specific acts of revenge, including the infamous bathroom scene, but rather the series of brutal rapes that precede them. I do not want to meet anyone who is not disturbed by these rape scenes and I think it is fairly obvious that Zarchi intended to make audiences uncomfortable. In retrospect you have to wonder about all those movies with rape scenes that do NOT upset the audience. But Zarchi certainly pours it on thick, absolutely assuring that things go beyond the tolerance level of anyone who watches this film. So the bottom line is that this film will upset you and it is therefore effective at doing exactly what it wants to do, which is supposed to be a good thing, right? I have always considered this an "X" rated movie although I would not consider it pornographic in the traditional sense. But it is a very disturbing film and I do not think I would want my kids to see it until after they graduate college (if ever).

1.0 out of 5 stars Censorship 25 Sep 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The rape scenes are not as bad as described because the BBFC cut them and also altered the framing. The bottle sequence is missing. These cuts make the director look incompetant and alters the impact of the entire film. This version becomes a mere entertainment by such bowdlerisation, extenuating the 'fun' aspects, i.e. the murders, which couldn't have been the BBFC's intention. The uncut version is much more disturbing. The cut version reduces the rape trauma and makes Jennifer's revenge seem disproportionate. They cut the sexual activity of the rape but explicit consensual sex is permitted viewing in the pursuit of murder. Where's the morality in that? The censorship of this movie is unconscionable, especially as 'Irreversible' is left untouched.

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I spit on your grave has been remade for 2010, so it is obvious why they have repackaged this original version onto Blu-ray with a poster and a booklet. Although this is classed as uncut compared to last version approved by the BBFC, this version is still cut by some 4 minutes. If you were lucky enough to have seen it in full on VHS, you will probably be disappointed with this version as it excludes some really good scenes. The transfer to Blu-ray wasn't necessary as the picture and audio quality are hardly Hi-Def. I really wish they BBFC would shut up shop and leave films alone, after all, isn't it about individual responsibility for what we wish to watch. Far too many 'video nasties' are now quite tame compared to modern films....BBFC, leave our films alone. Great film, poor picture/audio quality hence 3 stars. An fully uncut version would have been 5 stars.
