I Spit On Your Grave is one of the most controversial films ever made. It stirred up both audiences and critics alike, with its unabashedly open portrayal of cruel acts of rape and the now infamous subsequent revenge scheme carried out by the victim. It definitely isn’t an easy watch, but fortunately for its fans looking for similar pictures, the film isn’t very unique either, at least considering the time of the present (in terms of style, plot, and theme).
the film’s campy nature has been stolen and copied multiple times, and several pictures following similar stories have come out since, with a couple of these being even better than Grave, at least, in my opinion (though admittedly that isn’t a hard act to beat). Here is the list of films similar to ‘I Spit On Your Grave’ that we recommend. You can find several of these movies like I Spit on Your Grave on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. Mom (2017)
I included this one in here for a bit of variety. Personally, I feel this picture is quite mild compared to the other picks on the list, but the plot and nature of filmmaking are akin to that of I Spit On Your Grave. It is much less exploitative and is a better-financed production, starring the late Sridevi and Adnan Siddiqui in the main roles. The film follows a mother who sets out to avenge her daughter, who was raped during a party. There are quite a lot of similarities between Mom and I Spit On Your Grave that wouldn’t meet the eye upon a first viewing. The poor writing adds further to this resemblance.
