In 1978, I Spit On Your Grave hit cinema screens. The horror movie, about a woman who extracts revenge on four men who raped her and left her for dead, was a hugely controversial picture upon release, due to its content and subject matter.

Despite the controversy, as well as mixed reviews, I Spit On Your Grave built up a cult following on home video and eventually spawned a collection of movies. This collection included a remake, and a sequel, as well as multiple sequels to the remake.

Confused?

Well, it’s not surprising; the I Spit On Your Grave collection is a little confusing, and tricky to navigate through. But fear not, I am here to help simplify things.
