I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE 2!
Anchor Bay Films has once again joined forces with CineTel Films to release the next chapter of the controversial I Spit On Your Grave film franchise. I Spit on Your Grave 2 wrapped production late last year with Steven R. Monroe directing. The film is expected to be released in fall 2013. Anchor Bay Entertainment President Bill Clark made todayâ€™s announcement.
â€śWe had a great experience working with Lisa and Paul at CineTel on the 2010 remake,â€ť commented Kevin Kasha, Executive Vice President, Acquisitions and Co-Productions. â€śBoth the fans and critics alike loved the film and we know that I Spit on Your Grave 2 will deliver.â€ť
â€śWeâ€™re thrilled to continue our association with Anchor Bay for I Spit on Your Grave 2,â€ť noted CineTel Films producer Lisa Hansen. â€śAnchor Bay was a true partner in their handling of the 2010 remake. We all knew that the die-hard fan base would be disappointed with anything less than the unrated versionâ€¦the film had to be real, brutal, and honest. They walked that path lockstep with us and continue to do so as we shape the franchise.”
Anchor Bay Films released I Spit on Your Grave in 2010 to critical acclaim. Based on Meir Zarchiâ€™s 1978 version, the film gained the respect of both mainstream and genre critics. The New York Times called it â€śextremely efficient grindhouse,â€ť while New York Magazineâ€™s David Edelstein extolled â€śEach killing is as protracted, humiliating, ingenious, gory and downright poetic as any Iâ€™ve seen, and Iâ€™ve seen it all.â€ť Bloody-Disgustingâ€™s Brad Miska said â€śThe audience gasped, screamed and cheered as they watched Sarah Butler drop the axe on her assailants,â€ť while Rue Morgue Magazine declared it â€śa cinematic bulldozerâ€¦it handily trumps the original in the ferocious revenge sequences.â€ť I Spit on Your Grave 2 is a new chapter in the series.
