Re­vis­it­ing a late 70s shocker

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - CINEMA -

If Mother! Is prov­ing con­tentious, it’s got noth­ing on this next film.

Al­most 40 years af­ter its re­lease, I Spit On Your Grave is still one of the most con­tro­ver­sial movies in his­tory.

The revenge tale in­volv­ing rape and mur­der was ef­fec­tively banned in the UK un­til 2001, and even now the ver­sion you can (legally) get your hands on has been heav­ily edited.

And now it’s get­ting a se­quel. This new film, called Deja Vu, isn’t a se­quel to the 2010 re­make (and its two sub­se­quent se­quels), rather it’s a di­rect fol­low-up to the 1978 orig­i­nal. The film will fo­cus on the orig­i­nal char­ac­ters and though there’s no re­lease date, it would make sense for the film to be re­leased next year in line with its an­niver­sary.

No film stu­dio worth a damn would pass up a nat­u­ral mon­ey­mak­ing op­por­tu­nity like that.
