Love it or hate it, people cannot ignore the powerhouse rape/revenge film I Spit on Your Grave. The first film was a fairly decent remake of the original, managing to capture the spirit while retelling the story somewhat differently and substituting more elaborate revenge traps/murders in lieu of a drawn out and intense rape scene. Last year’s sequel, however, was what could be categorized as more of a “torture porn,” disappointing fans and critics.
Bloody Disgusting has broke the news today that CineTel Films has committed to a third film and is even shopping around at Cannes for a pre-sale. Although at this time there is no writer or director attached and it remains unknown if Steven R. Monroe, director of the I Spit on Your Grave remake and its sequel, will return.
Bloody Disgusting also quoted that the plot, “…will focus on a serial killer that uses a crisis hotline to target rapists. One of the counselor’s has a dark past, which sends Detectives sniffing in her direction — but is she the killer they’re looking for?”
Catchy idea. Hopefully they have learned from their previous mistakes and treat the third installment with a little more care.
