More Rape/Revenge In ‘I Spit On Your Grave 3′ (Exclusive)

I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE-3-

We broke the news on the first sequel to the remake, and now have received exclusive word out of Cannes that I Spit On Your Grave 3 is being pre-sold at the market.

At the time of this writing, CineTel Films has yet to hire a writer or director, but have committed to a third round of rape-revenge.

The third film, our sources tell us, 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?

The 2010 Steven R. Monroe-directed I Spit on Your Grave was a shockingly good remake of the 1978 classic. Monroe rushed out a sequel last year that was a huge disappointment. I think tonally, horror fans don’t want hardcore torture right now. They’d be smart to play the third film tongue-in-cheek, like Nurse.

    I did disagree with the third installment to be “tongue-in-cheek, like Nurse”. While I wasn’t a big fan of the sequel to the remake, it really came down to story and not tone. The 3rd installment of the REC films was a disaster in my opinion because they went the comedic route, rendering all the scares impotent. A bit of levity is always welcome but at the expense of story and scares…please, no.

    • Weresmurf

      Indeed, a touch of comedic element is fine if its inline with the film, but comedy for comedies sake just for ‘shits and giggles’ can ruin the film. REC 3 just wavered all over the place in a terrible manner. It started strong, went bad after the wedding party, had a few moments like seeing the demons on the staircase etc but overall was a bad entry. So yeah, definitely agreed.

    Ummmm…. Can i sign into my BD username…. or is it gone?

    BTW that poster for ISOYG3 is awful.

  • Ruben

    Loved these films, but REALLY!? Another remake of a remake of a remake?

    • http://thakidd ThaKidd

      The 3rd isn’t a remake. The original never had an official sequel.

      • Ruben

        The sequel of the remake was basically a remake of the remake because it didnt follow the events from the remake. So is this one going to follow the supposed sequel to the remake? If not to me its just all remakes of a remake because its the same story reused just told with a different little tweaks.

        • http://thakidd ThaKidd

          U’re confusing me. The remake has the same plot as the original version but the kills are different. The sequel to the remake is different. Different girl & different plot. The original NEVER had a sequel. So no its NOT a remake of a remake of a remake. The whole theme of I Spit On Your Grave is the girl gets raped, left for dead than girl gets her revenge.

          • Ruben

            I spit on your grave 2 is basically a remake of the 2009 remake because it doesn’t follow the story line of the previous film. And duh the original doesn’t have a sequel. And just because the girl is different and doesn’t mean its not exactly the same plot as the other film. Its all the same story the girl gets tortured and raped she takes her revenge. Its the same story recycled and just tweaked a bit. So essentially these sequels are really remakes of each other because its the same film again with minor changes, There are other people that agree with the remake opinion on the sequels.There’s no point of these sequels when its the same film again.

          • Levi Everaerts

            I respectfully disagree. It seems like you label a lot of films as a remake, following this logic. By your logic, everything with the same premise as an already existing film is a remake. Following this logic, most Friday the 13th installments are simply remakes of the first one. Same goes for Nightmare on Elm Street, The Omen, Children of the Corn, Candyman, Final Destination, Saw…see where I’m going with this? This is a thematic series. It’s also rape-revenge, which in and of itself doesn’t leave much room for changing things up. Last House on The Left already pushed it quite far with having the parents of the victim take revenge instead of the victim herself. You can’t just say “Oh, this is a remake of that because the exact same thing happens in that one.” That makes all slashers remakes of Psycho (or Halloween, or Texas Chain Saw Massacre, depending on when you think slasher started becoming a genre). I’d even go so far as to say that ISOYG2 wasn’t even a sequel, but yet a stand-alone film in the same thematic series as the remake of the original ISOYG (which really was a remake, because it used the same characters, location, plot, arc and even the same dialogue at times). The numbers in the title do not indicate that it’s a direct sequel, they’re only there to help remind you that it’s yet another film in the same series (a decision I do not particularly approve of, but hey, I’m not the one in charge). So no, this is definitely not a remake. Whether it’s a straight sequel (there are hints that Jemma Dallender, the main girl from ISOYG2, might have something to do with ISOYG3) to the previous one or just another stand-alone film like ISOYG remains to be seen. Anyway, I kindly advise you to look into what terms like these mean before you start using them.

          • Ruben

            The only thing I would say your wrong is that most of the franchises you named and sequels all continue each other. Were as in this new ISOYG franchise doesn’t. In my eyes its just the movie being redone again. Unless it follows a story line of the last film then thats another story.

          • Levi Everaerts

            That’s basically what I was trying to tell you: the films in this franchise are thematically linked to each other. They’re all stand-alone films with a certain theme. Sure, they’re similar, but they’re all very different from each other. And yes, you’re right, most of those franchises have continuing installments. They are storyline-based, not thematically linked like ISOYG. Hellraiser is another that doesn’t really call back to other installments and thus can also be considered a thematically linked series.

  • Jake

    when I first heard of a ISOYG 2 I assumed it would of followed Ms.Hills who now has a taste for killing and becomes some sort of vigilante, this sounds like that, hope they bring Sarah Butler back as the killer, could potentially be a good sequel imo :)

  • Chamber

    I disagree with your assertion that “horror fans don’t want hardcore torture right now”. That is a subjective statement, and a wholly incorrect one at that. This franchise was always meant as hardcore; the first film only played at specific theaters, was unrated, and only at certain times for some areas. The second was direct to VOD and unrated. These films are not meant to be tounge-in-cheek, and it would be a mistake to do so. Nurse was horrible in almost every way, and while I enjoyed it as a comedy, I completely detested it for trying to be horrific. This movie needs to stay hardcore, upping the ante each time. It doesn’t have to be torture porn, but it does have to be graphic.

    • Weresmurf

      People don’t want SHIT hardcore torture movies. But throw a quality one at us and we’ll eat it up like a damn good meal. Wolf Creek 2 was insanely good fun for instance.

      • DeadInHell

        Wolf Creek 2 was shit. And also not comparable to this series, as this is rape-revenge and Wolf Creek is just boring torture porn/wish fulfillment.

        • Weresmurf

          In your opinion. Wolf Creek 2 in mine was a great joyride. Mick in this one was a charismatic killer, actually fun to watch. Get off your high horse a bit.

  • horrorking95

    I’m not sure they should be turning this into a franchise. Wasn’t the sequel basically a remake of the first remake, which in itself was a remake! :S

    • Ruben

      Exactly my point also!

  • lion7718

    I liked ‘I Spit on Your Grave 2′.

  • Maxime C

    The last sequel was awful. AWFUL. I really hope they decide to try something different, even though I’m not that optimistic.

  • Doctor Hyde

    I also think that the tongue-in-the-cheek approach would be a huge mistake. I mean first of all, come on, a tongue in the cheek rape revenge movie? Why don’t we make a light-hearted holocaust comedy while we’re at it? I’d hope that if they can’t do ISOYG 3 properly then they wouldn’t do it at all because once you fuck up part three of any franchise it’s pretty hard getting back into form again. I have to admit though that I haven’t even seen part 2 yet, but I’ll check it out someday soon.

  • AL

    You call yourself MrDisgusting and then want this flic to be tongue in cheek ? Harsh dude. Glad you’re not making the movie.

  • LazerTron

    You have to go all the way on an I Spit On Your Grave movie. What you DONT have to do is follow the letter of the previous films. You don’t HAVE to have one mildly retarded villain who is kind of nice in a way but ends up raping the girl. You don’t HAVE to have the girl remember lines from the rapists and then say those lines while torturing them in similar ways to how she was tortured by that same guy earlier. You do have to have a revenge story, but the details can be unique.

  • Adam Clifton

    why don’t they do something different with the 3rd one? I’m not talking 3-D. I mean have the genders switched around this time. Have a male character get raped and abused by a group of fugly women in the woods and then have him get revenge on them. Or… you can do the same damn story with the same damn characters over and over and over…

    • DeadInHell

      What are you shitbirds talking about? They are doing something different. That’s the whole thing. The plot is a completely different take on the central idea of the series.

  • Zahk Scott

    I honestly thought the remake and the sequel were very well made movies that both succeeded in what they set out to do – the second one had less creative methods of disposing of the rapists and kidnappers, but it was still a very well thought out film.

    • Ashton Simpson

      i liked #2 cuz it had an actual PLOT to it, one way more intricate and thought out
      the first one was just: girl goes to cabin, gets gang-raped, jumps in river, then comes back to pick them off, the end
      i also like that the girl Katie actually left one of them alive, instead letting him slowly rot to death instead of just killing him flat out; soooo much more satisfying ^_^

  • DeadInHell

    I don’t think I’d suggest anyone play anything like Nurse.

    That aside, the first remake was a better film than I expected. It was a pleasant surprise. Although “pleasant” may not exactly be the best word to describe such a film.

    I haven’t seen the sequel, but I like that this one isn’t just going to be a retread of the exact same plot points. That they’re opening it up a bit and doing something different is promising. Hopefully it will be of the same quality as the first.

  • Louis Cypher

    How can you make a rape scene tongue-in-cheek?

  • David

    I liked the second one..I know alot of people hated it..but it was dare I say decent..
