Praised by some as a feminist tract, reviled by others as exploitation, Meir Zarchi's 1978 film I Spit on Your Grave was met with a firestorm of controversy that continues to this day. On October 8, 2010, Anchor Bay Films will release Meir Zarchi-approved remake, and it is poised to be as much a hot-button talking point as was the original. The story follows a beautiful woman from the city, Jennifer Hills (Sarah Butler), who rents an isolated cabin in the country to write her latest novel. Soon, a group of local lowlifes subject Jennifer to a nightmare of degradation, rape and violence. Left for dead, she returns for vengeance. Trapping her male attackers one-by-one, she inflicts acts of physical torment upon them with a ferocity that surpasses her own ordeal. When the carnage clears, victim has become victor.
