'''''I Spit on Your Grave''''' -- an infamous 1978 grindhouse rape-and-revenge {{exploitation film}} also known as ''Day of the Woman'' -- follows the story of Jennifer Hills, an aspiring writer from New York who rents a riverside cabin [[DontGoInTheWoods out in the woods]] so she can work on her first novel in peace. She catches the eye of four local rednecks (Johnny, Andy, Stanley and Matthew, the last of which seems mentally handicapped) who decide to harass Jennifer while she sunbathes. That night, the rednecks harass her while she lies in bed. The day after that, the rednecks kidnap her from her boat, pull her ashore, and rape her in some of the lengthiest, most realistic, and goddamned disturbing rape scenes in film history. ([[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking They also mock and rip up her novel]].)

** What's more, any jury almost certainly ''would'' convict her of murder, since she has no (physical) evidence of the previous rapes other than her say so. (Maybe if she slipped them a copy of the DVD...)

* LeaveTheCameraRunning: The rape scene is disturbing particularly because it goes on and on for 30 minutes.



* OneLiner: "Suck it, bitch!"

* RealityHasNoSoundtrack: The (in)famous rape scene has no music beyond the harmonica played by another character, which made it one of the most raw sequences put to film at the time.

* FanDisservice: If the rape scenes from either the original or the remake arouse you, or you find the full body shots of the naked, battered, dirt-covered Jennifer even the least bit erotic, then we'd like to ask you to turn yourself in to the nearest psychiatric facility and get some help.

A 2010 {{remake}} adds a new character, Sheriff Storch, and a stylistic difference from the original: the middle act of the film follows the gang of rapists rather than Jennifer by showing a montage of the rednecks going on with their lives before strange things begin to happen to them (in a way reminscient of ''Film/IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer''). The effect of this change makes it look as if each redneck fears that someone knows what they did -- or that one of them has turned on the others.
