That being said, there's a VAST difference between the gigantic suck-fest that is Fright Night 2 and the newest iteration of I Spit on Your Grave 2. Most notably the presence of a 20 minute rape scene that puts Irreversible to shame.
ISOYG2 follows Katie. An aspiring model in New York who desperately wants work. She finds an ad for a free photo shoot which, of course, is run by a skeevy Eastern European dude who, seriously, just wants her to get all oiled up and nekkid. She refuses, natch, and gets to maintain her self-respect and dignity.

And then Georgy calls his brothers to help him clean up the mess. In the process, Katie gets drugged, forced to touch the knife that killed her neighbor, and stuffed into a box and then wakes up chained to a pipe in a basement being raped AGAIN. She escapes and finds out she's in fucking Bulgaria. Because people weren't freaked out by Eastern Europe enough in A Serbian Film.
The social worker that comes to get her from the cops turns out to not be a nice lady. Who just happens to know the rapey brothers. Because she's their mom.
This won't end well.
The rest of the film follows Katie and her roaring rampage of butthurt. (HA!)
|An eye for an eye, bitches!|
|And a dude gets drowned in poop.|
All of that aside, as a rape-revenge film this one is pretty high up there. It makes you uncomfortable and it makes you think about what you would do in that situation. About the only thing that's improbable is smuggling a human being in a trunk to Bulgaria. In this day and age, getting that shit past TSA is not an easy thing.
|X-ray this, motherfucker!|
