I Spit on Your Grave 2 (2013)
Director: Steve R. Monroe
Main Stars: Jemma Dallender, Joe Absolom, Yavor Baharvo, Mary Stockley
Storyline: A young inspiring model gets attacked and raped and she escapes and plans revenge on her attackers.
Review (Spoils): Young pretty Katie (Jemma Dallender) is trying to break in the modeling business, she wants to keep it clean and gain success the right way. She has gone down a few avenues and even met a group of young men that took photos of her but wanted to see a dirtier side so she bailed. During that night one of the young men that were fantasised from her presence breaks into her apartment, rapes her, beats her and kills her neighbour. This leads to him calling the others and they try to cover their tracks and kidnap her. This leads to more beatings, raping and more people involved in this nasty business. In the end she escapes when they thought of her dead and bring some scary graphic revenge upon them all.
If you saw the original or even the remake you have an idea where this film is going. This one does not travel anywhere different off that beaten path except that might be a bit more graphic. We have lots of male torture, some seriously uncomfortable rape scenes, blood, serious knife wounds, gun shots, some weird wire thing through the head, electric shocks and a nut scene which you will never forget.
Jemma Dallender did an amazing job filling the main role, when the movie started I was like ” I cannot picture her the revenge type”…but I was proven wrong. She can be one mean bitch (good for her). A very pretty actress and she has some serious talent as she held the film for me.
Rating: The problem I do have with this film is just because it involves rape and revenge does not make it an I Spit on Your Grave film. I get it but at the same time I don’t want the series to fall under no connections just another retelling of a similar tale of some demented arseholes torturing and raping women. The original still holds the torch for the film and I think the remake was even better than this one. Watch the other two before you dive into this one….
