If you know anything about me, then you probably know that I'm a big fan of the 'dare' movie. Any movie that basically dares you to make it to the end, whether it's so terribly bad or so terribly disturbing, it's a dare that I'm almost always up for. So, when I saw that the remade I Spit On Your Grave had a sequel, I knew that I had to check it out!
The premise here is basically the same as the original, a naive young girl falls into the sights of very bad men and then....let's just say very, very bad things happen! This sequel is set in New York City, so I was interested in how exactly it might play out, but this movie takes a weird turn and winds up in Bulgaria!!!! So, it's sort of a cross between I Spit On Your Grave and Hostel. Other than the setting change, this is exactly what you'd expect. Young girl is assaulted and abused, young girl is left for dead, young girl nurses herself back to health, young girl rains hell down upon the people who did this to her!
If you love revenge movies, you might like this...if you can manage to get through the first half of the movie, which is the 'dare' portion of our film! If you don't know what the 'dare' might be, then I'd just avoid this...and, as I've advised friends in the past. NEVER watch this movie around or near women, this is a movie that will make you uncomfortable sitting alone in your living room, let alone with someone of the opposite sex watching with you.
I'm giving I Spit On Your Grave 2 3 out of 4 cigars, if you're in the mood for being uncomfortable and then cheering on some much deserved vengeance, then you'll love it. If you just want another slasher movie, then don't get this movie, it might be too intense for you!
