Sarah Butler I Spit On Your Grave 2010 Movie – It is a bunch harder to offend audience at the moment than it was nearly twenty years ago. With the release of the revenge movie, “I Spit On Your Grave,” which features a female empowerment theme, many thought that the excessive rape scenes in the movie were too much to stomach.
The movie is a remake of a film which draws a lot of criticism the first time around. The gross out horror genre has seen an upturn in recent years with the rise of violence in movies and believable blood and CGI. However, this film seems to take things a little bit farther than most are willing to watch.
The show of our key character Jennifer (played by Sarah Butler) is a solid one. She is credible in the revenge scenes, but is harder to believe in the scenes where she carefully stalks the men that she will kill.
The film is alright, at best, but is great for fans of the genre that are looking for a little brutality.

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Actress Sarah Butler was born in Puyallup, Wash. She attended the University of Southern California and received a degree in theater and opera studies. Butler played the character of Belle at Disneyland, then entered the world of film and television. She has starred in episodes of “CSI: New York,” “CSI: Miami” and did a webisode for “Prison Break.” Now, she is the lead actress in the new Anchor Bay film, I Spit On Your Grave. Butler plays the character of Jennifer Hills in the new movie, which is currently in theaters now.
“I had a lot of interest in it at a young age, doing school plays and that kind of led me to come down from Washington state to Los Angeles,” Butler said in an exclusive phone interview. “When I got here, I had a friend who was working at Disneyland and he said, ‘We have auditions coming up for one of the Princesses.
You’ve been on many TV shows so which was your most favorite and why?
“They were both so fun, I got exploded in both of my ‘CSI’ episodes,” the actress explained. It was really nice working on both shows. On ‘CSI: New York,’ the staff and the cast embraced me. I formed friendships with a couple of the cast members and the writer. Even Gary Sinise, who not only stars on the show, but also produces it as well. He is like a really great guy. Getting to work for him, I really realized that. He took the time to come up to me and he addresses me by name. He said, ‘Sarah, It was a pleasure having you on the show. Great job, thank you very much.’ It was something so small, but it makes a really big difference.”
Could you tell us a little about your character in the film?
“I play Jennifer Hills, I’m a writer, I live in the big city and I’ve just had great success with my first novel,” the Hollywood actress explains. “I’m going to be writing my sophomore novel.In order to get some peace and quiet to work on it, I decide to run like havoc out in the country. It’s interesting, in the original film, they didn’t really explain why these men would want to attack in the woman. In our version, it’s definitely explained more about the point-of-view of these people who live out in the country and feel that city folks are prepared better than them and they resent them for that. Why is the movie unrated instead of an “R” rating?
“We did try for an ‘R’ rating and I guess the MPAA, from what I understand, was requiring over 100 cuts,” Butler said. “That was the original plan was to go with the ‘R’ rating, but after all the cuts had been made, our production team felt that it kind of cut the legs off the film being that the shock values is really its most unique traits. We went to our distribution company, Anchor Bay, and said, ‘We want to release this unrated.
It’s not the film we intended to make with all these cuts.’ Surprisingly enough, Anchor Bay agreed, which was a pretty gutsy move for a distribution company. They want to make their money back on the film. We’re all hoping that it pays off knowing that the fans of the original will definitely be happy we’re releasing it unhappy.
What’s next for you after this film…any other TV shows or movies that you’re working on?
“I’m just searching for the right next thing,” the actress explains. “I had an offer come in. I’ve been looking at some different projects. It’s like Jennifer Hills working on her sophomore novel. It’s kind of like my sophomore movie in a way, kind of a complicated process. I’m more focused on building a broad foundation for my career than anything else. It’s a diffficult decision, haven’t settled on anything yet. Hopefully, the right thing will be coming through my door soon.”
Would you consider doing your next movie or TV show in Michigan with our state’s 42 percent tax incentive for the film industry?
“Especially if I was producing it, I would definitely be interested in that,” Butler laughed. “I have never done a film in Michigan, but I would love to check it out to see what it’s all about up there.”
What is your advice to film or theatre students who are looking to break into the industry?
“One of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned in this industry is perserverance and patience,” the actress said. “People come into this town thinking, ‘I’ll give myself a year or two years. If I’m not famous by then, I’ll leave.’
The thing that most people don’t realize is that, that majority of the actors and actresses, even people behind the scenes, directors, cinematographers and all the different people in this industry, they’ve been working at their careers for years before you even know who they are. It’s got to be something that you’re willing to devote your life to and have fun doing it.”
