For the sequel to a rape-revenge fantasy, "I Spit on Your Grave 2" begins promisingly enough. Our heroine Katie (Jemma Dallender), an aspiring model living in New York, is poised, hard-working and, above all, resourceful. She does go to a "free" photo shoot by herself, but otherwise she makes smart decisions — high-tailing it out of there when the photographer (Joe Absolom) suggests she pose nude as some kind of repayment.
A sense of dread hangs over these early scenes, but it's not until later that the shutterbug's brother Georgy (Yavor Baharoff) slips into her apartment and attacks her there. In the ensuing cleanup, she gets shipped off to Bulgaria.
