Three announcements today.

Firstly, check the sleeve poll thread in this sub-forum to find out who won a free DVD or Blu-ray of the movie.

Secondly, There's a new I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE POST on the Cult Labs blog. Some more thoughts on controversy in cinema and how the choice of title for a film can buy a lot of notoriety.

Finally, the theatrical quad poster for the upcoming cinema release has been changed so here's the new look artwork:

I am a huge fan of the original, and even got the opportunity to review it for an Australian site: here is a link for it I Spit On Your Grave Review and recently picked up an original daybill and am looking forward to seeing the remake... and want that remake poster desperately!!!

Thanks for posting. Good news on that original poster, one of those images that never goes away and caused such trouble in the early 80s in the UK.

Here's a blog post I wrote on why extreme violence has a place in cinema: CLICK

Any thoughts on what I wrote are welcome...

good read
well written too.
I agree on what you said about wanting to experience extreme thrills safely and thats what horror gives us just like we go roller coasters to have thrills.

I think it goes back to primal fight or flight reflexes.

The modern world is safe and mediated and we are infantilized as a result. Extreme cinema appeals to really corners of the psyche that we are all meant to suppress for the greater good.

while that is very true, there are still a lot of messed up people in the world who may not even watch extreme horror
which is why people consider extreme horror dangerous.
not that I agree obviously

Interesting look at the sexual politics behind I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, both in it's original and remake guises, from THE GUARDIAN
