Zarchi's first professional film credit came from providing the story for the 1962 Israeli drama Nini.
Zarchi first film effort as a director was I Spit on Your Grave a.k.a. Day of the Woman (1978), which starred Camille Keaton, whom he married the following year. The story of a woman seeking violent revenge on the men who raped her, Grave was considered controversial and the time of its release and suffered censorship in various countries. In 2010, Zarchi executive produced the remake of I Spit on Your Grave and the remake's subsequent sequels I Spit on Your Grave 2 (2013) and I Spit on Your Grave III: Vengeance is Mine (2015).
Zarchi's sophomore effort came seven years later with the revenge-drama, set in New York City, Don't Mess with My Sister.
