Savage Vengeance is an unofficial sequel to the controversial 1978 film I Spit on Your Grave. It stars Camille Keaton, reprising her role as Jennifer Hills. How she came to accept to play in this turd is beyond comprehension. Some flashback scenes are botched reconstitution of events that took place in I Spit on Your Grave. Beware: this movie is an abomination. Here’s why...
We’re five minutes in and the rapey stuff starts. Who cares about character exposition anyway? This movie is just over an hour long and there is not a second to waste. Donald Farmer can’t write dialogue, nor can he direct subtlety, so he sticks to molestation and murder. He can hardly pace his script and seems bored of his own story. The synthesizer score makes every attempt at ambiance fail.
Savage Vengeance piggy backs on its loose connection to I Spit on Your Grave, and models a 101 rape/revenge story inspired by it. The very existence of this sequel implies that Camille Keaton’s character is a rape magnet; can’t blame her for killing every man she comes across! Forget this movie. It has weak photography, no boom operator and embarrassing performances. Avoid it at all costs...
