I Spit on Your Grave Remake

SpitRapists beware! I Spit on Your Grave is set for a remake, and will educate another generation of victims on how to properly dispose of their attackers! We get the following scoop from the professionals at Variety:

CineTel Films has acquired rights to remake “I Spit on Your Grave,” the 1978 female revenge film that was reviled for its depiction of sex and violence. The remake rights were owned by Meir Zarchi, who directed, produced and wrote the original. Though the majority of CineTel’s releases are straight-to-DVD titles, the company will make “Spit” for a theatrical release.

As reviled as it was when originally released, “I Spit on Your Grave” was a precursor to a slew of female revenge film hits, Hertzberg said. Contemporary genre fare has become so graphically violent that the original doesn’t seem as outrageous as it did 30 years ago. Hertzberg is listening to pitches from writers on how to ratchet up the shock factor.

I Spit on Your Grave was no doubt quite the affair 30 years ago. It still remains a must see film for fans of the horror genre, and it’s no surprise that the remake machine has gobbled it up. What’ s unfortunate is that a direct to DVD movie house has acquired the rights. When the “shock factor” is the first item on the table for discussion – I tend to get a little skeptical.

As a funny aside Ebert (who hated the original) was contacted by Variety and asked for his thoughts on the remake. He simply said “that his hope is that this time, the result is a better film.”
