I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE is a US horror film in which a young woman seeks vengeance on a group of men who brutally assaulted her.

Threat

There are scenes of prolonged threat in which a young woman is physically, psychologically and sexually terrorised by a group of men.

Violence

A scene of sexual violence occurs in which a group of men take it in turns to rape a young women. Although two of the men are shown sexually assaulting the woman, it is implied the others also do so afterwards. The sequence contains brief, incidental moments of nudity, while the violence itself is largely conveyed through the faces of the characters.

Frequent scenes of very strong bloody violence include a character being burned with acid, a man's eyelids being pulled open with fishhooks to allow birds to peck out his eyes, a man's teeth being pulled out with pliers, a character's penis being cut off, a man being shot in the anus, and a man being shot in the head. There is sight of blood and graphic close up detail throughout.

There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k'), infrequent but aggressive use of very strong language ('c**t'), and occasional use of discriminatory language, including 'retard' and 'homo'.

Strong verbal sex references also occur, as well as scenes of nudity.

One of the rapists is portrayed as having a learning disability. Some viewers may find the portrayal of this character offensive or upsetting.
