The 1978 shocker I Spit On Your Grave is getting a sequel: I Spit On Your Grave: Deja Vu.

Dread Central reports that original director Meir Zarchi will direct original star Camille Keaton in a follow-up to their original film (which was also known as The Day Of The Woman) that will share both characters and continuity.

The rape-revenge film, which was classified as a video nasty in the UK, was a hugely controversial piece of work that has divided opinion since its release. A remake directed by Steven R Monroe was released in 2010 that drew surprisingly okay reviews, and a sequel to that followed which was generally despised.

This new remake has nothing to do with Anchor Bay or CineTel, the company behind the remake.

“Following her rape, Jennifer Hills wrote a best-selling account of her ordeal and of the controversial trial in which she was accused of taking the law into her own hands and brutally killing her assailants. In the small town where the rape and revenge took place, the relatives of the four rapists she killed are furious that the court declared her not guilty and resolve to take justice into their own hands.”
