Unrated “I Spit On Your Grave” heading to select theaters


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Horror fans who like their exploitation films to be as gory and offensive as possible have reason to celebrate.

Anchor Bay Films just announced it will release an unrated version of Steven R. Monroe’s “I Spit On Your Grave” – an update of Meir Zarchi’s controversial classic – in theaters on Oct. 8. Actually, the unrated push will begin with late-night sneaks on Thursday, Oct. 7, in select locations.

An R-rated version of the remake exists. But as for right now, the unrated version will screen theatrically in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Phoenix, Miami, and Baltimore, with additional markets to be announced.
 


Here’s a synopsis:
I Spit On Your Grave tells the story of a beautiful woman from the city, Jennifer Hills (Sarah Butler), who rents an isolated cabin in the country to write her latest novel. Soon, a group of local lowlifes subject Jennifer to a nightmare of degradation, rape and violence. Left for dead, she returns for vengeance. Trapping her male attackers one-by-one, she inflicts acts of physical torment upon them with ferocity as the victim becomes the victor.


“We are thrilled to be releasing the unrated, uncensored version of the new I Spit On Your Grave,” says Bill Clark, president of Anchor Bay Entertainment. “Steven R. Monroe has brought his own remarkable vision to this cult classic and we are certain that the unrated cut will, like the original, evoke a visceral reaction from audiences worldwide.” 
 


“With Meir Zarchi intimately involved in the film as an Executive Producer, Steven R. Monroe’s I Spit On Your Grave truly honors the 1978 classic with a few surprises thrown in,” said Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President Worldwide Acquisitions and Co-productions for Anchor Bay Films. “Fans will not be disappointed.”
