Anchor Bay Films seems to have made the conscious decision to live and die by its promise of “Unrated” revenge goodness when it comes to director Steven Monroe’s “I Spit On Your Grave” remake. Everything I’ve seen of the film’s advertising so far is promoting the fact that it’ll be arriving in limited release as an unrated film, which would seem to indicate it doesn’t plan on staying in theaters for very long before making the jump to DVD, where no doubt the film plans on making its real bones. Check out the theatrical trailer below.
A remake of the controversial 1979 cult classic, I Spit on Your Grave retells the horrific tale of writer Jennifer Hills, who takes a retreat from the city to a charming cabin in the woods to start on her next book. But Jennifer’s presence in the small town attracts the attention of a few morally deprived locals who set out one night to teach this city girl a lesson. They break into her cabin to scare her. However, what starts out as terrifying acts of humiliation and intimidation, quickly and uncontrollably escalates into a night of physical abuse and torturous assault. But before they can kill her, Jennifer sacrifices her broken and beaten body to a raging river that washes her away. As time passes, the men slowly stop searching for her body and try to go back to life as usual. But that isn’t about to happen. Against all odds, Jennifer Hills survived her ordeal. Now, with hell bent vengeance, Jennifer’s sole purpose is to turn the tables on these animals and to inflict upon them every horrifying and torturous moment they carried out on her… only much, much worse.
Starring Chad Lindberg, Daniel Franzese, Tracey Walter, Rodney Eastman, Sarah Butler, Jeff Branson, Mollie Milligan, Saxon Sharbino, Andrew Howard, and directed by Steven R. Monroe.
