I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE (1978)

Starring Camille Keaton, Eron Tabor and Richard Pace

Written and directed by Meir Zarchi

Anchor Bay Entertainment

Is I Spit on Your Grave misogynist trash or feminist horror? That question has been asked ever since director Meir Zarchi put out Day of the Woman back in 1978. You likely know it by its more outrageous title, which distributors used when they re-released Day in 1980, minus the MPAA-induced cuts which bowdlerized much of the brutality from Zarchi’s rape-revenge story.

I always get a thrill picking up Rue Morgue‘s Halloween issue each year, not only because my writing is inside but because it’s always a thing of beauty. This year’s 13th anniversary edition is no different, with a cover story on the legacy of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho which turns 50 this year. And look at that cover, courtesy of art director Gary Pullin. Norman’s almost pretty enough to kiss!

Issue 105 of RM hits stands October 1 and here’s a rundown of what you can expect.  Go buy it!

TORONTO AFTER DARK PREVIEW: “I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE”

Posted in Events, Festivals, Gore, Movies, Rue Morgue, Violence with tags , , , , , , on August 19, 2010 by darklordbunnykins

It’s the penultimate night of Toronto After Dark tonight, and The DLB will unfortunately be missing the 7 pm screening of Christopher Smith’s Black Death in order to attend a special soiree I will report on tomorrow. It may or may not have something to do with the 9:45 screening this evening of I Spit On Your Grave, the remake of the 1978 shocker of the same name.

Like the original, the remake is about a young writer (Sarah Butler) raped and brutalized by a trio of thugs who exactly bloody vengeance. Director Steven R. Monroe will be in attendance to participate in a post-screening Q&A, and The DLB is hoping to snag him for a brief interview. Fingers and paws crossed.
