Grave spat on again

06.04.2008
I haven't seen the notorious exploitation flick I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE since renting it in high school -- and now I'll be saved from having to revisit the original thanks to a brand new version!

Yes, the 1978 cult classic about a woman seeking bloody vengeance on the guys who gang-raped her is getting dragged into the new century by CineTel Films, a mainly direct-to-DVD company who'll prep the new GRAVE for theatrical release. "After seeing what was done with an R rating on films like SAW and HOSTEL, we think we can modernize this story, be competitive with what this marketplace expects and not have to aim for an NC-17 or X rating," said CineTel honcho Paul Hertzberg.

Meir Zarchi, who directed, produced and wrote the original, is thrilled about the remake, claiming that he hopes it's just as controversial. After countless "torture porn" flicks in the past few years, it will certainly have its work cut out...
Extra Tidbit: Variety contacted critic Roger Ebert (who detested the original) to let him know about the remake. His response? "Ebert said only that his hope is that this time, the result is a better film."

OOOF

Why would anyone want to remake this?! I've seen it, most likely due to (a)I'll watch anything and (b) that is a great ass on the cover. I'm not sure how they think they can managa an R rating and keep it anyway close to the original. Forget the violence, ratings board never seems to have problems with that. In the original the lead lady is naked at least half the movie. Its going to be awful

Plus there was a very awful/sick/disturbing quasi-remake of this I recently saw thanks to Netflix.

Plus there was a very awful/sick/disturbing quasi-remake of this I recently saw thanks to Netflix. Its called "I Spit on Your Corpse, I Piss on Your Grave". Terribly vile and sick movie. I'm a shamed of myself for renting it, and honestly feel I am now on some Patriot Act watch list for renting it.

But I guess if you want to see people getting tortured, some guy actually shitting(for real) on the floor then having the real shit rubbed in his face, as well as another dude tied down to a bed while some chick rapes him with a baton, then this could be the movie for you. And if this is the movie for you, do us all a favor and turn yourself into your local police precinct.

Well, the original certainly had a damn good poster. Hope they keep that style (ass). And Uma Thurman for the lead. Or maybe Lucy Lawless. Or, wait for it....Angelina Jolie!

Anybody think a remake of Dr. Giggles is a good idea?

This one...

...could use an update/reboot! Lots of potential to be a trainwreck though. A direct to DVD unrated feature might be best. Get the dude who made 'Hatchet' to pull it off!
