I written quite a few times on THN about my admiration for Steven R. Monroe’s vicious, yet ingenious remake of notorious rape-revenger I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. I was never a fan of the controversial 1978 shocker directed by Meir Zarchi, but Monroe knocked the intense redo out of the park thanks to a host of brutal set-pieces that need to be seen to be believed (a strong stomach is a must however), as well as impressive performances from Sarah Butler and Andrew Howard.
Anchor Bay tasked the director to return and I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE 2 will see another unlucky female victim fall foul to a group of sadists before unleashing her own ruthless survival instincts.
Naturally beautiful, Jessica (Dallender) has just settled into New York where she, like many other young women, is trying to make it as a model. But what starts out as an innocent and simple photo shoot soon turns into something disturbingly unthinkable! Raped, tortured and kidnapped to a foreign country, Jessica is buried alive and left to die. Against all odds, she manages to escape. Severely injured, she will have to tap into the darkest places of the human psyche to not only survive, but to exact her revenge…
Jemma Dallender leads as the preyed-upon Jessica, with Joe Absolom, Aleksandar Aleksiev, Mary Stockley, Michael Dixon, Valentine Pelka, Yavor Baharov, George Zlatarev, Peter Silverleaf and Georgi Zlatarev co-starring. It’s limited release hits the US 20th September before being available Blu-Ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand from 24th September. It arrives in the UK on DVD/Blu-ray from 7th October.
