The original movie is almost intense and brutal as the recent remake! So definitely worth getting this DVD! An aspiring writer is repeatedly gang-raped, humiliated, and left for dead by four men whom she systematically hunts down to seek revenge.
Some Trivia ========= - There is a hidden easter egg on the Special Edition version [UK.] On page three of the special features, go to 'main menu' then hit left, and you can highlight the knife that Jennifer holds. The easter egg reveals a selection of stills from the movie.
- The poster's tagline mistakenly says, "This woman has just cut, chopped, broken and burned five men beyond recognition." There are only four men she gets revenge on and she does not burn any of them. In the remake I Spit on Your Grave, a fifth man is added.
- Director Meir Zarchi prefers the title "Day of the Woman".
- Actor Richard Pace (Matthew) unintentionally worried director Meir Zarchi filming his death scene when he started to convulse while hanging. Zarchi initially thought he was just doing some really good acting, but realized that something was wrong. Pace wasn't choking, but was afraid of heights and was having a panic attack.
