I Spit On Your Grave

Whether exploitative filth or thought-provoking adult entertainment; no one can deny that this film has earned its place in cinematic history, albeit a place where few will dare to tread.DMB

DVD Extras: This excellent DVD tries to explain the film's place in exploitation cinema history. A fine selection of reviews and essays from the UK, USA and locally examine the film's virtues and the history of the video nasty. The collection of histrionic trailers and TV spots show the marketing savvy of Jerry Gross "There isn't a jury in America that will convict her!" Two running commentaries take on different approaches to enhance the viewer's enjoyment and understanding. Zarchi gives an informed and intelligent account of his ideas that helps to explain his mindset when making the film and the legendary Joe Bob Briggs is irrepressible as he chats about one of his favourite movies.
