Cult Cinema Showdown 98: Ms .45 vs I Spit on Your Grave (Ep. 230)

CAUTION/TW: Both films being discussed contain depictions of Sexual Assault.

Cult Cinema Showdown returns with Abel Ferrera's Ms .45 vs Meir Zarchi's I Spit on Your Grave. These highly controversial movies cover the sexual assault of their respective protagonists and their subsequent revenge against those responsible. I Spit on Your Grave is considered by many to be the "peak" of the rape/revenge subgenre of Exploitation films, becoming a catalyst for the Video Recordings Act, and was branded a "Video Nasty" in the United Kingdom. Ms .45 takes inspiration from films such as Thriller-A Cruel Picture and Taxi Driver, even being called "The female Death Wish" by many who have seen it. Who will win this week's showdown? Tune in and find out.
