Movie News: I Spit On Your Grave remake....freakin' seriously?!

This makes me sad.  1978's I Spit on Your Grave/Day of the Woman is a much critcized and often misunderstood classic.  As a pretty hardcore feminist myself, I am in the camp that this movie is a pro-female movie and a feminist statement.  It's also a film that should really be left in it's original form.  We're not talking about Freddy messing up dreams or Jason hacking up teenagers in the woods.  This is an intense, graphic, and emotional movie that should not be remade with some 20-something actress just because someone managed to get the go-ahead.

This abomination is scheduled to arrive in theaters in September 2010.

They filmed the original a half hour away from my town back in the Seventies...I can attest to it still being backwoods creepy up there.
