NEW TRAILER FOR GIRLS AGAINST BOYS!

Opening February 1st (in select cities), Anchor Bay has released a brand spankin’ new Trailer for GIRLS AGAINST BOYS (which you can check out, along with an 8 minute clip after the break). The last time I spoke on GIRLS AGAINST BOYS, or, rather, wrote on the subject, I compared it to rape-revenge flicks such as I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE or SAVAGE STREETS. Well, I’ve actually SEEN GIRLS AGAINST BOYS and I wouldn’t make such comparisons now. More of a whacked out THELMA & LOUISE than anything else with murder galore is probably closer to the mark. I’m keeping a lid on a review until after a Screening I’m going to next week, so for now I’m not sayin’ peep on what I think about the film. What I WILL say, however, is check out the new trailer after the break!

SYNOPSIS:

When Shae (Danielle Panabaker), a naïve college student, is tormented by several men in a matter of days, she reaches her breaking point, and is drawn into coworker Lu’s (Nicole LaLiberte) twisted plan for revenge. Together, the two embark on a gruesome killing spree, terrorizing and brutally murdering not just their attackers, but any man who gets in their way. However, after a wild weekend of retaliation, the friendship between the girls shifts into a dangerous obsession, and their perverse game becomes a desperate struggle for Shae to maintain control against Lu’s deadly and seductive influence.

Written and directed by acclaimed director Austin Chick (XX/XY, August) Girls Against Boys stars Danielle Panabaker (The Crazies), Nicole LaLiberte (HBO’s “How to Make It in America”), Andrew Howard (Limitless), Michael Stahl-David (Cloverfield), and Liam Aiken (Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events).

GIRLS AGAINST BOYS – 8 MINUTE CLIP, OFFICIAL PLOT SYNOPSIS, AND FIRST TWO POSTERS

Over the holiday season (Dec. 20th to be more precise), Anchor Bay Films put out a press release for a grisly rape revenge film titled GIRLS AGAINST BOYS, and it sounds very intriguing. From the description, I’m reminded somewhat of films such as I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE and SAVAGE STREETS, but with something entirely new brought to the mix, as you’ll see below.

‘I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE’ REMAKE? UH…WHY?

So this is the first time I’m hearing about a REMAKE of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, the exceedingly visceral rape/revenge thriller directed by Meir Zarchi in 1978.  Also known as DAY OF THE WOMAN, the film follows a woman who has come to the country to work on her novel in peace and quiet, only to be violently assaulted and raped by a group of local yokels.  After healing a bit, she launches into a campaign of vicious revenge against her attackers (including cutting off one guy’s dong!).

As hard as the original film is for me to watch (because of the rape/assault part that seems to last FOREVER), I’m certain that I’ll be having a more difficult time trying to watch the remake (because, obviously, it’s going to suck).  This version is directed by Steven R. Monroe and stars Sarah Butler, Daniel Franzese, Chad Lindberg, Rodney Eastman and Andrew Howard.  I’m guessing the financing came through after the somewhat successful LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT remake happened as I really can’t see how a remake of a film such as I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE could get produced.  Of course we all know that this flick is going to FAIL.  The original was made at a specific time, when exploitation flicks were synonymous with independent filmmaking.

On top of that, Anchor Bay has agreed to put the remake out this fall in a targeted (read: limited) theatrical release!? To be followed by DVD release early 2011.  Really Anchor Bay?  Really?  I remember the days when I worshiped at the DVD alter of Anchor Bay, in the early days of DVD releases when they were putting out all the great horror classics.  Now I have THIS.  Ah well, it’s business, but a remake of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE will not only suck balls, but it’s really something more apt for a Brain Damage release.
