I was never a fan of Meir Zarchi’s notorious and poorly acted 1978 rape/revenger I Spit On Your Grave, but Steven Monroe’s 2010 remake was a genuinely ingenious (hard-to-watch) thriller that deserved a whole lot better than it received in both box-office and critical reception. Still, Anchor Bay Films tasked Monroe with follow-up I Spit On Your Grave 2, centring on an all new victim and vicious perpetrators, one which I have my misgivings. However, on the strength of his controversial reboot, I’m willing to give it a shot, although I fail to see how he can top the grotesque set-pieces exacted by Sarah Butler’s wronged women.

What starts out as an innocent and simple photo shoot soon turns into something disturbingly unthinkable. Raped, tortured and kidnapped to a foreign country, Katie is buried alive and left to die. Against all odds, she manages to escape. Severely injured, »
