I Spit On Your Grave Q&A

To launch this year's A Night of Horror Film Festival and celebrate the Australian release of the original I Spit On Your Grave and the 2010 remake on Blu-ray and DVD, I took part in a Q&A session with director Meir Zarchi on stage after a screening of the sparkling new print of the 1978 "classic". The film is still an ordeal to sit through but chatting with Meir certainly gave the audience a new perspective on one of the most infamous video nasties.

The A Night Of Horror festival, based at the Dendy Newtown, features a splattering of the latest horror films including the premiere of the internet funded The Tunnel, the Australian premiere of David Blyth's Wound, the 3D chiller Hybrid and the charmingly titled Dead Hooker In A Trunk and the world premiere of #12. I'm a judge at the festival along with Ozploitation producer extraordinaire Anthony I. Ginnane and Steve Kastrissios - director of the excellent The Horseman. For ticket details head to See you there!
