Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
The original I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, aka DAY OF THE WOMAN, made it's debut in 1978 and saw a limited release, with a much wider release following in 1980. The cult classic revenge film was highly controversial back then and still brings the Horror even to this day. Since then the flick has been remade, and even a couple of sequels to that remake. Back in September we learned that an official sequel to the original is in the works for the future.
If you ever wanted to know more about I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE you are in for a treat. Director Meir Zarchi's son Terry Zarchi has been creating a documentary titled GROWING UP WITH I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. The trailer for this project awaits you below along with the official details.
"Thirty-six years after the making of the controversial 1978 cult classic I Spit On Your Grave, actress Camille Keaton will appear on screen with director Meir Zarchi in an upcoming documentary.
Day of the Woman, a.k.a. I Spit On Your Grave, was inspired by Meir Zarchi’s experience with a victim of rape. After stumbling upon a teenage girl in a park in the aftermath of a violent assault, Zarchi began to imagine how a woman in this situation might fantasize about revenge. Moreover, he wanted to depict to the audience the real horrors of rape.
Upon its theatrical release in 1980, the movie was described by the late prominent film critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert as easily the most offensive film they had ever seen, yet hailed by others as a cinematic masterpiece. The debate continued as the movie was pulled from theaters in the United States, then branded a Video Nasty in the United Kingdom and placed on the Director of Public Prosecutions’ list of prosecutable films. Still, 36 years later, the film continues to attract both praise and negative criticism and has even spawned a remake in 2010 and sequel in 2013.
Now in production, the I Spit On Your Grave 1978 Documentary will reveal some insight into the madness and the man behind it all. Created by Terry Zarchi (son of Meir Zarchi, who also played a small role in the film), this project will deliver both a personal and informative view that only someone who grew up with this movie can provide."
