Banned by censors, bashed by critics, reviled by feminists... The legacy of I Spit On Your Grave can be summed up in one word: controversy. Expect more of the same now this Special Edition restores almost 50 percent of the cut footage.
First unleashed in 1978, this grubby rape-revenge flick sees a New York writer (Camille Keaton) go vacationing in Hicksville only to be repeatedly gang-raped by rednecks. Cue bloody retribution.
