Bloody’s Pat Torfe roughed out Anchor Bay’s I Spit On Your Grave 2, the sequel to their (actually pretty awesome) remake from 2010. Pat points out the sequel’s brutality, but says that it brings nothing new to the cutting table, beginning with another rape scene…
“The problem with a film like ISOYG 2 is what you can exactly say that you enjoy about it. Obviously, no sane person could enjoy the film’s rape scenes, which are predictably and honestly some of the hardest things I’ve ever had to watch (and yes, I’ve seen Monica Bellucci’s rape scene in Irreversible),” Pat says in his review, before pointing out that it at least got him angry enough to cheer when the villains get their comeuppance.
“Also, the effects are all practical, making things that much more real,” he adds. “Gorefans will be in heaven.” (Although, there’s no way to know for sure if there were digital touch-ups.)
“I Spit On Your Grave 2 is just as mean, harsh and brutal as the first film. That’s a given. But is it worth your time? If you’re like me, however, it’s a one and done viewing. Everything about this film feels like a “been there, done that” deal, and largely, that’s what it is.”
