''I Spit on Your Grave'' -- an infamous 1978 grindhouse RapeAndRevenge ExploitationFilm 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 brutalize her in some of the lengthiest, most realistic, and goddamned disturbing rape scenes in film history. ([[KickTheDog They also mock and rip up her novel]].)

After the rapists leave the scene of their crime, they order Matthew -- who had previously shown some affection for Jennifer and didn't want to participate in the rapes -- to go back and kill Jennifer. Matthew cannot bring himself to do it, so he smears blood on the knife to make it look like he did. Thanks to Matthew's mercy, Jennifer eventually recovers, and over the next few days, she goes on her own personal RoaringRampageOfRevenge. She starts by seducing Matthew before she hangs him from a tree. She then finds Johnny and holds him at gunpoint -- and then she invites him back to her house, where she takes a bath with him, castrates him with a kitchen knife, and leaves him to bleed to death. To cap her rampage off, she swims out to Andy and Stanley's boat, pushes them overboard, then axes one in the back and disembowels the other with the propeller -- and before she finishes the job, [[IronicEcho she shouts out exactly what he had told her while he raped her:]] [[OneLiner "Suck it, bitch!"]].

* ColdBloodedTorture: Jennifer deals with Johnny in the first remake by pulling out several of his teeth before turning the shears on him. Katie from the sequel takes things even further by making very extensive use of the same cattle prod that one guy used on her when she catches up to him.

* HollywoodLaw: The poster claims that no jury would convict Jennifer for killing the men. They almost certainly would, as revenge for a previous crime does not justify four premeditated homicides.
