I Spit on Your Grave (2010) posterAnchor Bay Entertainment releases this rather unnecessary remake of the infamous exploitation horror film. Since Anchor Bay is primarily a home video company, presumably this will be a small platform release designed mostly to boost DVD sales; the timing also seems a deliberate attempt to get the jump on SAW 3-D, which opens a couple weeks later. The plot has a woman writer, brutalized during a retreat to an isolated cabin to work on her latest novel, take vengeance upon her captors in ways equally brutal. Steven R. Monroe directed, from a screenplay by Stuart Morse and Jeffrey Reddick, based on the 1978 film written by Meir Zarchi. The cast includes Sarah Butler, Daniel Franzese, Chad Lindberg, Jeff Branson, Rodney Eastman, Saxon Sharbing, and the always fun character actor Tracey Walter (REPO MAN).

Fans of the original seem concerned about whether the remake will include a castration scene. My feeling is that, after the witty variation on this idea in STORM WARNING, who cares?
