I’m something of an admirer of the controversial [so controversial that even in today’s liberal climate the UK Blu-ray and DVD release is still censored] original I Spit On Your Grave and have found myself defending it several times, though I wasn’t too impressed by the remake meaning that I still haven’t bothered with its sequels. In any case, like it or loath it, the I Spit On Your Grave franchise has a lot of fans who were probably very happy to hear that Meir Zarchi and Camille Keaton, the director and star of the 1977 film, were returning for a direct sequel. Arrow in the Head report that editing has just been completed on I Spit On Your Grave: Deja Vu, but that we won’t get to see the film till next year when its release will probably coincide with the 40th anniversary of the original. At least a couple of pics have been released which you can see here.
Following her brutal rape, Jennifer wrote a best-selling account of her ordeal and of the controversial trial in which she was accused of taking the law into her own hands and ruthlessly killing her assailants. In the small town where the rape and revenge took place, the relatives of the four rapists she killed are furious that the court declared her not guilty and resolve to take justice into their own hands. In this new chapter, Jennifer Hills is joined by her daughter Christy (Jamie Bernadette) as well as a variety of new characters, including Maria Olsen who plays the role of Johnny’s wife, the gas station attendant Jennifer castrated; Jim Tavare in the role of Herman, whose son Matthew was hung by Jennifer, as well as by actors Jonathan Peacy, Jeremy Ferdman, Holgie Forrester, Roy Allen and Alexandra Kenworthy.
I’m intrigued, but I can’t be the only one who thinks it’s silly that these people have waited 40 years to get their revenge!
I Spit On Your Grave: Deja Vu is written and directed by Meir Zarchi and stars Camille Keaton, Jamie Bernadette, Maria Olsen, Jonathan Peacy, Jim Tavaré, and Jeremy Ferdman.
