I Spit On Your Grave Press Notes
“This woman has just cut, chopped, broken and burned five men beyond recognition,” declared its poster, “but no jury in America would ever convict her!”
“This movie is an expression of the most diseased and perverted darker human natures,” wrote Roger Ebert in The Chicago Sun-Times. “I walked out of the theater quickly, feeling unclean, ashamed and depressed.” It was censored in America, banned around the world, and remains one of the most disturbing and debated films of our time. Now more than 30 years after its notorious release, it has taken equal parts conviction and courage to create the remake I Spit On Your Grave.
“There were a lot of incredibly shocking things about the original film, including the reaction to it,” says producer Lisa Hansen. “It was passionately lauded and reviled. But there are undeniable moments in the film that are powerful and even poignant. To this day the controversy continues and that alone is the perfect reason to remake it.” In a time when iconic shockers are being ‘re-imagined’ only to emerge as toothless disappointments, this CineTel Films Production from Anchor Bay Films is unafraid to deliver all the terror, torment and outrage that is I Spit On Your Grave. “Make no mistake,” declares Hansen, “this remake is true to the original. Anything less would be an injustice to the film and its fans.”
The plot – then as now – is simple, savage and infamous: a beautiful woman from the city, Jennifer Hills, rents an isolated cabin in the country to write her latest novel. Soon, a group of local lowlifes subject Jennifer to a nightmare of degradation, rape and violence. Left for dead, she returns for vengeance. Trapping her male attackers one-by-one, she inflicts acts of physical torment upon them with a ferocity that surpasses her own ordeal. When the carnage clears, victim has become victor. And in 1978, film critics, feminists, churches and even international governments instantly screamed their condemnation and contempt.
“I first saw the original as a teenager,” says director Steven R. Monroe. “I Spit On Your Grave was a low budget film, with an unknown cast, yet it stayed with me in a way that films like Straw Dogs and Clockwork Orange had. We see movies to be entertained, but also to be emotionally challenged. To remake a film that caused so much controversy so long ago makes a statement in itself.” For executive producer Meir Zarchi – the writer/director of the original – the legacy is even more immediate. “There were a million misconceptions about my movie,” Zarchi says today. “The original title was Day of the Woman until the distributor gave it a more exploitive name. Millions of people judged it without ever seeing it. I had made an extreme dramatic thriller about a rape victim who chooses to fight back. Steven told me, ‘Your movie pushed the envelope.’ I told him that the remake should shove the whole mailbox.”
The first challenge was to craft a script that retained the power of the original while refocusing Jennifer’s vengeance. “My partner Paul Herzberg and I developed the script for more than a year,” says Hansen. “We knew that parts of this film would be extremely graphic, but then you have classic films like Deliverance and Bad Lieutenant that were memorable in part because some actions were left to your imagination–they felt the most depraved. The most significant change we made from Meir’s film was in the set-up and execution of her revenge. In the original film, Jennifer seduced each of her attackers. In the remake, she cleverly traps and tricks them. She takes what they did to her and pays it back to them tenfold.
Key to the film’s brutal impact is its performances, particularly newcomer Sarah Butler as Jennifer. “I knew she was our star in the first seconds of her audition,” says Monroe. “I saw complete believability, natural beauty and strength. I also knew that there would never be a name actress who could take on this role and be willing to do what had to be done. No star would have dove in– physically and emotionally – of what Sarah had to do. She delivered on every level and gave a 100% fearless performance.” For the actors cast as her attackers – Jeff Branson (“All My Children”),Daniel Franzese (Bully), Rodney Eastman (Nightmare on Elm Street 3&4), Chad Lindberg (The Fast and the Furious), Tracey Walter (Batman) and Andrew Howard (Revolver)– the roles came with a specific admonition. “My first piece of direction to the male actors was, ‘There are men like this out there. They are not cartoon characters’, says Monroe. “All the actors knew this. These characters are the way they are for a reason. They probably came from horrible or non-existent parents. In many cases they are taught hate, and they never knew any better. They are real people. And they have to feel real.”
But how far were the filmmakers – and actors – willing to go? “Rape scenes in movies should be disturbing,” said Monroe. “But that doesn’t necessarily make its inclusion exploitive. I wanted a constant sense of violation for all the characters, to feel as if there was never a safe place. Most of all, it’s important to pull the audience into what Jennifer is feeling during the rape. These sequences are gritty, graphic and filmed almost like war footage. The revenge scenes have a different feel, a strong docudrama/thriller style. Through it all, I was very protective of the actors. I blocked out at least 90% of the violence and found ways to let as much of the scene as possible play out so that the actors were not interrupted. We cleared the set whenever possible. And we shot as much of the movie in sequence as we could. The characters had to go through specific traumas to feel certain emotions. If you portray these horrific acts realistically, audiences will respond.”
For Hansen, the cast’s dedication to the material on the film’s backwoods Shreveport locations proved almost too intense. “I lost track of just how powerful some of these scenes were,” she remembers. “When we were shooting the assault scenes, I wanted to yell ‘Cut!’ to protect Sarah. She had no body double. It was all her. She went to some extreme emotional and physical places. All of the team did. Everybody got banged up and bruised. But we had the most phenomenal group of actors who were committed to making it real. They knew what they signed up for, and they went for it.”
In an era when critics continue to vilify the ‘torture porn’ trend of modern horror, film academics today praise the original of I Spit On Your Grave for its hard-edged empathy and in-your-face feminism. And while knee-jerk reactions to the film will always exist, the creators of the remake trust that intelligent audiences will have the final word. “I want this movie to be a disturbing experience that stays with people.” Monroe says, “In the end, all I hope is that people are emotionally affected.” Thirty-two years cannot diminish its legacy or quell its shock. One of the most controversial films ever made is now back with a vengeance. “We’re introducing I Spit On Your Grave to a whole new audience—it’s been over 30 years since the original was released,” says Lisa Hansen. “We’ve heard some skeptics say, ‘Why would you remake this movie? There’s no way you could go where the original went.’ I think we did, and then some. Love it or hate it, people will remember this film.”
ABOUT THE CAST
SARAH BUTLER (Jennifer Hills)
In the last year the fresh, young up-and-comer, Sarah Butler, has worked on episodes of “CSI” New York and Miami, a web series for FOX, and a passion project from the writers of “Prison Break.” However, she is most proud to announce her leading role in Anchor Bay Films’ I Spit on Your Grave, coming to theaters this year.
Sarah hails from Puyallup, a small town in Washington State. Her acting career really began there, when the excitement of the stage drew her away from her lifelong hobby, sports. Performing in high school and community theater productions, Sarah began to seriously consider a career as an actor. Ironically enough, it was college that brought her to Los Angeles. After a year and a half of theater and opera studies at the University of Southern California, and another year and a half as Belle at Disneyland, Sarah jumped into film and television. Her roles have ranged from fairy to eco-terrorist to high school sweetheart to rape victim.
JEFF BRANSON (Johnny)
Raised in Lake of the Ozarks, MO, Jeff moved to New York City to pursue acting where he studied at the American Musical & Dramatic Academy. Upon graduation, he set off on a touring production of “Romeo & Juliet.” He soon landed roles in Off-Broadway shows and worked his way up to supporting roles on television including ‘”Law & Order: SVU,” “Strangers With Candy,” and “Without a Trace.” His breakthrough came with his captivating performance as Jonathan Lavery on “All My Children.” His work earned him a nomination for an Outstanding Supporting Actor Daytime Emmy® Award.
Feature credits include supporting roles in Tom Dicillo’s Delirious, Shaft opposite Christian Bale, The Magnificent Cooley-T opposite Gary Dourdan and the lead in The Big Bad Swim opposite Paget Brewster and Jess Weixler, which premiered to rave reviews at Tribeca. Last year Jeff’s second Daytime Emmy® nomination brought him the golden statue when he won the Outstanding Supporting Actor Award for only two months of work on “Guiding Light.”
In his spare time, Jeff enjoys donating his time to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
DANIEL FRANZESE (Stanley)
Daniel, a third generation Italian born in Brooklyn, New York moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida at the age of nine with his mother Denise and father, lounge singer Ralph "R.J." Franzese. He landed his first commercial at the age of 11, but his mother decided acting wasn't a life for a young kid and told him to perform in school until he was old enough to decide if he wanted a career of it ... and that he did, later attending college at Florida School of the Arts majoring in Musical Theater. He left in 1998 to perform in regional theater. Shortly after he made his first breakthrough earning a Carbonell nomination as Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” which helped him land a role in the National Broadway Tour of “Tony and Tina's Wedding.” But his real break came when casting director Carmen Cuba and director Larry Clark discovered him in a South Florida club and cast him in a lead role in Clark's movie Bully.
RODNEY EASTMAN (Andy)

ABOUT THE FILMMAKERS
STEVEN R. MONROE (Director)
Steven R. Monroe was a child of film, and the entertainment industry. His father John was a cameraman for over 40 years in New York and Los Angeles. His mother Naomi was a theatre producer, director, and actor for over 30 years and was assistant to Haig Manoogian during her days at NYU. His sister Julie Monroe is a highly respected editor. His uncle is legendary jazz producer Don Schlitten. Steven began dreaming of directing at a very early age making films with his Super 8 camera at the age of eight and acting in theatre. He received his first paycheck at the age of 11 loading film and clapping the slate working under his father on commercials.
Monroe began his freelance career in the camera department at the age of 20 in the mid 80’s and spent 10 years as an assistant cameraman, then camera operator. He did numerous seasons of popular television series, movies, and feature films. He always wanted to be sure that he knew the camera well before he began his directing career.
Steven’s first offer as a director was, by fluke in the music video world which he gladly accepted in 1995. His third video won the Grand Jury Prize and the Houston Worldfest International Film Festival, and a Silver Telly Award in 1996. His later videos and commercials won two Silver and six Bronze Telly awards.
Monroe’s first feature film in 1999 a thriller, The Contract, was distributed on DVD worldwide by Bauer/Martinez Studios.
In 2003 he directed the psychological thriller House of 9, with Dennis Hopper, Kelly Brook, and Hippolyte Girardot, again produced and distributed worldwide by Bauer/Martinez, released February 2006.
In 2004 he directed the horror film, It Waits for producer/writer Stephen J. Cannell distributed worldwide by Anchor Bay Entertainment, released March 2006.
In the fall of 2005 he directed Devil on the Mountain (aka Sasquatch Mountain), a feature film distributed worldwide by Curb Entertainment and a SyFy Channel “World Premiere Movie” for September 2006.
In 2007 he directed Ogre a SyFy Channel Original Movie. Also in 2007 he directed Storm Cell for the Lifetime Network, an action/disaster film starring Mimi Rodgers, both with Producer Lisa Hansen at Cinetel Films.
In 2008 he completed filming another SyFy Channel Original, Wyvern an Adventure/Sci Fi film, and the recently premiered Ice Twisters, an action/disaster film again for the SyFy Channel and Cinetel Films.
In winter 2008 Monroe was finally able to fulfill a lifelong dream when he wrote, produced and directed his own Independent Drama, Complacent starring Cerina Vincent, Kerri Green, Joey Kern, Elisa Donovan and Keir O’Donnell, soon to be released.
In 2009 he directed yet another SyFy Channel Original Film with Cinetel Films Mongolian Death Worm, an Adventure/Sci Fi film which he also co-wrote and co-produced.
Monroe was originally born in New York and has lived in Los Angeles since the age of seven. He went right to work in film industry right after high school. He and his wife of eight years, Melanie, live in West Hollywood and had their first son, Finch Morrison in March of ‘08.
LISA HANSEN (Producer)
Lisa Hansen has emerged as one of the most prolific and successful producers in Los Angeles, having produced more than 70 movies to date, and working at a pace likely to cause that number to double soon.
As Executive Vice President, Hansen has been with CineTel since its inception in the mid 1980s. In addition to helping to transform the company into one of the largest independent film studios, Hansen also heads Cinetel Pictures, a separate production operation which she created.
With Cinetel making six to eight pictures annually, Hansen is not only concerned with overseeing the day-to-day operations of development, production and post-production, but also with creating an atmosphere of creative freedom to nurture quality filmmaking. “I enjoy discovering and launching the careers of new talent” Hansen says. “It is one of the great advantages of being an independent producer.”
Under Hansen’s guidance, this environment has flourished, bringing CineTel a wealth of talent. Among the writers and directors who have worked with Hansen are multiple-Oscar-nominee Quentin Tarantino, Brian Helgeland, Roger Simon, Robert Downey, Roger Avary, Bruno Barreto, Dolph Lundgren, Steven Seagal and the late Marc Rocco.
In addition to I Spit On Your Grave, Hansen has shepherded many prestige features including
A Rumor of Angels with Vanessa Redgrave, Carried Away with Dennis Hopper and Amy Irving, and the now-classic Where the Day Takes You, Marc Rocco’s study of kids living in the shadow of the Hollywood sign.
In addition to the familiar names already mentioned, CineTel’s films have starred Will Smith, Rutger Hauer, Famke Janssen, Jaime Pressley, Lou Diamond Philips, Sharon Stone, Peter Coyote, Alyssa Milano and a long list of others, many of whom were given their first featured roles on Hansen’s productions.
A native of Chicago, Hansen began her career as a radio DJ in Gillette, Wyoming. Upon returning to Chicago, she joined Spectrum Pay-TV as Program Manager. In 1981 Hansen left that firm for a position of Chicago Teleproductions, the company that later morphed into today’s Cinetel Films, Inc. Within three years, she had been made Executive Vice President, the position from which she has been making an impact on the industry for almost thirty years.
NEIL LIKS (Cinematographer)
Born and raised in the U.K. Neil has spent the last 18 years in the United States establishing himself as a successful cinematographer. He has photographed award winning music videos, commercials and over a dozen feature films.
From the castles of Spain to the dirt streets of Pakistan, visual storytelling is Neil’s passion and it has taken him around the country and around the world. Whether shooting mini-DV from the back of a pickup truck or 35mm in the back lot of a major Hollywood studio, Neil has always striven to tell the director’s story.
Neil would best describe his approach to cinematography as that of a realist, with some of his biggest influences being the work of Edward Hopper, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, and stills photographer Robert Frank. All these artists were able to capture the mood of the subject they were observing, and that is what Neil strives for with every frame he shoots.
JASON COLLINS (Special Make-up Effects Artist)
Jason Collins is co-owner of Autonomous F/X, Inc. a Los Angeles based special make up effects company. He began his professional career when he was 21 working on some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters and art house darlings including Mulholland Dr., Way of the Gun and the X-Files movie and television shows “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel” and “Firefly.”
In 2005, Jason decided to break out on his own to create Autonomous F/X, Inc. out of the need to find autonomy in his professional career. Since then he's worked all over the world on some of the most unique blend of feature films, television shows and commercials.
Jason has been honored with two Screamfest Awards for best make up, the first in 2002 for the film Kolobos and in 2009 for his participation in The Revenant. Currently his work can be seen in "House M.D" and “It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" for Fox television.
KEVIN LITTLE (Visual Effects Supervisor)
Kevin Little possesses the super hero ability to survive on merely coffee for days on end. Passion for perfecting the shot while pushing the boundaries of Visual Effects are what keep him going. I mean, the man didn't get to be president by meeting a client deadline with just ONE all-nighter, but by mastering the all-nighter-and-next-dayer-and-following-nighter. Talk about a master of his domain.
