Anchor Bay and Cinetel Films’ have released the first image from I Spit On Your Grave 2, a sequel to Steven R. Monroe’s 2010 remake of Meir Zarchi’s controversial 1978 rape-revenge thriller. The photo finds new star Jemma Dallender ready to jump one of her assailant’s bones… with jumper cables.
I Spit On Your Grave 2 follows aspiring model Jessica (Dallender) as she’s lured to a photo shoot in New York only to be raped, tortured and taken to a foreign country where she endures more horrors before being buried alive and left to die. She miraculously survives and sets out to make male moviegoers uncomfortable.
The sequel wrapped production late last year and is slated for a fall 2013 release. Monroe returns to helm the project, scripted by Chain Letter scribe Thomas Fenton. Dallender is a newcomer whose credits include the U.K. indie frightener Community and a recurring role on Britain’s sexy school girl soap “Hollyoaks.”
Monroe’s I Spit On Your Grave starred newcomer Sarah Butler as Jennifer Hill, a young novelist on a mission to maim, dismember, and murder the men who brutally and repeatedly raped her while on holiday in the woods. The film grossed just under $100,000 in its limited theatrical run, but was a hit on home video.
