The remake of I Spit on Your Grave has an uphill battle. For some film fans, the original is a cult classic that’s brutal and unflinching in its exploitation. It’s hard to imagine that something from Anchor Bay Films can live up to the bloody promise of excess that was delivered then.

But the movie has a brand new teaser trailer out that you should check out for yourself while wearing a cup:

As a teaser, it doesn’t do much for me. Even though I’ve seen the original, which can definitely poison the prospect of this film being as nasty, the trailer doesn’t really show much. A few shots of people in Jennifer’s house, her looking mean, and a dude tied up with some rusty sheers in his future. It makes me think that the film might not have the kind of gore that would really thrill the audience it’s marketing to.

In an unrelated thought, has anyone ever had the idea to give a film like this to Gasper Noe who would, gauranteed, have an 11-minute long, static camera rape scene? Why not mix exploitation with high art?

In a related thought, this teaser was pretty boring. Call me when those sheers get put to some good use. And when the camerawork doesn’t look so amateurish.

Or when they drop that ridiculous tagline. Are they actually advertising for that Steve Carrell/Tina Fey comedy that came out a few months ago?

I Spit on Your Grave hits theaters in September.

Is it really date night?
