1978 - I Spit on your Grave (w/ James Raynor)

CW: Due to the nature of the content of this film we do talk about rape and violence against women.

Film maker James Raynor returns to help us discuss the 'video nasties' of the late 70s and early 80s, where because of legislation a whole raft of horror films were made illegal, resulting in fines and in some cases prison sentences for those who owned them and distributed them. The 1978 film, I Spit On Your Grave, by Meir Zarchi and starring Camille Keaton is one of the most controversial of these films and really does earn that reputation. We try our best to discuss the film, the history of the act and try to generally provide content for what was a pretty significant time in the UK film industry history and the history of censorship.
