CinePsyEP020 I Spit On Your Grave (1978)

Jan 4th, 2016

Cort reveals his latest invention when Matt accidentally walks in on Cort testing it’s functions and making sure it behaves as expected.  Cort has an unusual emotional outburst against 2015 because of all of the heroes that he lost in that year and can’t even muster himself for the full list. This surprising emotional outburst makes Matt very uncomfortable.  The Boys then discuss every nuanced response that was dragged out of them from the film and the topics dealt with in I Spit on Your Grave that are often overlooked.  All in all this episode examines the cultural and societal issues that make a polarized film like I Spit on Your Grave necessary to create a dialogue to eliminate the victimization and objectification of women.  Some may think this film is just exploitative trash, but Cort finds deeper meanings in this film and tries to explain what he thinks they are and is shocked when Matt sees some of the same themes and attempts at an artistic expression that may be far too overshadowed by the exploitative elements.

Don’t Forget the contest guys and gals once we get 20 total honest reviews in iTunes and Stitcher, Cort will give away one brand new copy of Macabre from William Castle on DVD picked from those reviews, just email Cort your screen name or a screencap of your review and you are entered to win!

Every week an obsessed film collector, Cort, will subject his unwilling test subject, Matt to films from Cort’s childhood viewing habits and personal collection.  Has a lifetime of movie watching damaged Cort’s young and impressionable mind?  Can Matt survive each week’s experiment unscathed?  Find out each week as we discover that physical wounds heal while cinematic ones don’t.
