I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE is getting a remake!!?

Not sure how this one slipped by me, but it seems the Meir Zarchi classic I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE from 1978 is being remade. I love the original and am excited to see what they can do with a new version. I will be getting a sneak peak of the new film next weekend and the Texas Frightmare Weekend, so I will report back afterwards to let you know what I thought.


Here is a photo from the new film showing the new star of the film, Sarah Butler, taking over the roll of Jennifer, originally played by the amazing Camille Keaton.


Now I know some of you HATE when they mess with these classics and remake them, but I say, what harm do they do? If in order to do a remake you had to destroy all existing copies of the original film, then yes, we would have something to be mad about. But if the remakes are no good, then we will always have our beloved originals to go back to! And look at it this way....some of today's kids and teens have probably never heard of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. If anything, they will check the new one out and then it might generate some interest on their part to see the original. I think anything that brings attention to the original films is a good thing. What do you think?

  1. Its going to be really hard to surpass or even equal the brutality of the original. Although the director mentioned this week that he it 'pushes the envelope'. What that means exactly remains to be seen. Kind of hard to think the remake will be as challenging to get through as the original, especially if they hope to get a wide screening.

    BTW, got your package in the mail last week. Can't wait to check out the flick. Thanks again!
