She repeats an order he made to her during the sexual assaults: "Suck it, bitch! The film's original title was Day of the Woman. The title was changed to I Spit on Your Grave for the re-release. Zarchi was unable to find a distributor, so he distributed the film himself. It played a number of engagements in rural drive-in theaters , but only for brief runs each time, and Zarchi barely made back what he spent in advertising. In , it was picked up for distribution by the Jerry Gross Organization.
A condition of this re-release was that they could change the title to anything they wished. It was at this time the film was retitled I Spit on Your Grave. I Spit on Your Grave received universally negative reviews from critics. Film critic Roger Ebert referred to it as "a vile bag of garbage He wrote, "I wanted to ask if she'd been appalled by the movie's hour of rape scenes". Ebert was also one of many to cite the movie's poor production quality as a weakness in addition to the scenes he found offensive, stating "The story of 'I Spit on Your Grave' is told with moronic simplicity.
These horrible events are shown with an absolute minimum of dialogue, which is so poorly recorded that it often cannot be heard. There is no attempt to develop the personalities of the characters - they are, simply, a girl and four men, one of them mentally retarded. The movie is nothing more or less than a series of attacks on the girl and then her attacks on the men, interrupted only by an unbelievably grotesque and inappropriate scene in which she enters a church and asks forgiveness for the murders she plans to commit".
Critic Luke Y. Thompson of The New Times stated that "defenders of the film have argued that it's actually pro-woman, due to the fact that the female lead wins in the end, which is sort of like saying that cockfights are pro-rooster because there's always one left standing". Critic David Keyes named it the worst film of the s. Encyclopedia of Horror notes that the film attracted much debate for and against, frequently involving people who clearly had not actually seen the film. Further, there is no suggestion that she 'asked for it' or enjoyed it, except, of course, in the rapists' own perceptions, from which the film is careful to distance itself.
The initial criticism was followed by reappraisals of the film. A reappraisal was made by Carol J. Clover in the third chapter of her book Men, Women, and Chainsaws. Clover notes that she and others like her "appreciate, however grudgingly, the way in which [the movie's] brutal simplicity exposes a mainspring of popular culture.
Clover wrote that in her opinion the film owes a debt to Deliverance. Its consensus reads, " I Spit on Your Grave is as aggressively exploitative as its title suggests, although as a crude rejoinder to misogyny, it packs a certain amount of undeniable power. Many nations, including Ireland , Norway , Iceland , and West Germany , banned the film altogether, claiming that it "glorified violence against women".
Canada initially banned the film, but in the s decided to allow its individual provinces to decide whether to permit its release. Since , some provinces such as Manitoba , Nova Scotia , and Quebec have released the film, with a rating that reflects its content. Company Credits. Technical Specs.
