Anchor Bay Acquires Third 'I Spit on Your Grave' Movie23 Mar, 2015 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Anchor Bay Entertainment has acquired distribution rights to I Spit on Your Grave: Vengeance is Mine, the third chapter in the successful horror franchise, according to Bill Carr, president of the Starz-owned subsidiary.
Anchor Bay has rights to all formats, including theatrical, digital, home entertainment and TV for North America and other English speaking territories (United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand).
Based on the original 1978 movie and hailed at the time as a milestone in film terror, Sarah Butler reprises her role from 2010’s reboot I Spit on Your Grave. This latest installment, which is a continuation of the 2010 storyline about a young novelist sexually assaulted in a cabin in the woods, is currently in post-production and expected to be released later this year.
Anchor Bay Home Entertainment released the reboot on disc in 2011, followed by I Spit on Your Grave 2 in 2013.
“Anchor Bay has deep roots in the horror genre and has proven to be an incredible partner for us," CineTel Films and “Grave” producer Lisa Hansen said in a statement. “The fan base for horror films continues to be incredibly strong and Anchor Bay shares our commitment to meet the insatiable demand for truly horrific, heart-pounding entertainment.”
