Weekend of Horrors: More Details: I Spit on Your Grave

Some news coming out of this weekend’s Creation Weekend of Horrors concerning Steven R. Munroe’s remake of I Spit on Your Grave. Fans in attendance were treated to a couple of pretty damned gruesome clips as well as a unique look at some of the film’s crazy-ass gore effects. What went down? We’ve got the skinny for you.

First things first; horror fans can breathe a guarded sigh of relief as from what we saw and heard this weekend, the filmmakers are in no way looking to pussy out. Producer Lisa Hansen and director Steven R. Monroe let curious convention-goers know that they’ve been battling it out with the MPAA for quite some time now and are in the fourth round of dealing with the ratings board. Apparently they’ve been asked to make more than one hundred cuts to the movie due to its tone, realism, and grisly violence.

As a result all those involved promised that when fans finally do get to see the controversial little film, it will be in an unrated form as they all agreed, “It’s the only way to do it to properly revere the original work.

Speaking of which, also on the panel was the creator of the original film, director Meir Zarchi, who was making his first ever convention appearance and could not have been more thrilled with the way that this retelling has turned out. Meir’s involvement was confirmed as being much more than just lending his name to the project, which is sadly the case with most remakes. For Munroe and company Zarchi’s stamp of approval meant a lot, and getting it is more than they could have hoped for.

Fans in attendance, including myself as moderator of the panel, began warming up to the idea of this flick (and that was no easy task), especially after viewing the clips, which featured Jennifer (Sarah Butler) doling out some grueling payback by way of a pair of pliers. Yep, things are looking appropriately good for this latest day of the woman.

Before things wrapped up, Anchor Bay and the gang unveiled a couple of prosthetics from the film crafted by F/X artist Jason Collins. Check out some images of them below featuring a look at Rodney Eastman’s extreme demise, along with Jeff Branson posing with his ummm … “Stunt Double”.

Look for more on this one soon!

    Does this mean thaT Sarah Butler is nude and bears her boobies?

    I’m still not convinced that she’ll show actual nudity in her scenes despite what is said about being “just as controversial as the original.”

    They’ll probably keep the same rape scenes intact but with shots of no nudity this time, unless someone can prove, otherwise.

    A Rosario Dawson movie called “Descent” was rated NC-17 for a brutal rape scene and she didn’t even show nudity, although the guy did… YUCK!!!

    It looks to be that she’s naked but probably with all the naughty stuff covered with hair and whatever.

    This movie can still be great without female nudity with all the brutal stuff intact. Then we’ll see if people still complain about no nudity despite the realism this time.

    Maybe if hollywood would put more effort into making something both original and good then things would get better… This movie will most likely suck but even in the slim offchance that it doesnt i ask you do we really need another Remake? good or bad they are just remakes and dont really take the genre to new places

  • Terminal

    Man, this movie is going to blow chunks so hard. Prepare for another lame ass remake.

      I’m hopeful. When I met them, the cast and crew were really behind it, and took the source material very seriously.

      • Terminal

        I’ve read a thousand interviews with those very words. They take the material seriously, they love the original movie, they’re paying respect to the source material while adding their own twists, etc.
