Interview: Jim Tavare on ‘I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu’

by Phil Wheat


Jennifer Hills is back! Forty years after 1978’s I Spit On Your Grave shocked the world with its story of a beautiful career woman assaulted and left for dead, and her notorious revenge on those responsible, cinema’s most lethal lady vengeance returns in the most anticipated sequel of all time. Reuniting star Camille Keaton and original director Meir Zarchi, I Spit On Your Grave: Deja Vu sends now successful writer Jennifer Hills hurtling back to where it all began – to face the wrath of the families of those she murdered. Kidnapped along with her daughter Christy ( Jamie Bernadette), it’s a tense game of hunt – or be hunted – against a ruthless gang of degenerates overseen by a violently unhinged matriarch Becky, (Maria Olsen).

Meir Zarchi delivers the next explosive saga in the most controversial tale of an eye-for-an-eye ever committed to celluloid. Some grudges refuse to be buried… I Spit On Your Grave: Deja Vu is written by David Maguire, author of the most comprehensive book on I Spit On Your Grave.

Jim Tavare plays Herman in the new sequel I Spit On Your Grave: Deja Vu, whose son Matthew was killed by Jennifer Hills in the 1978 film, I Spit On Your Grave. Jim’s amazing transformation as Herman accentuates this BAFTA actor’s diverse talents. British trained actor and stand up comedian Jim Tavare co-wrote and starred in ITV’s The Sketch Show which won a BAFTA and was syndicated worldwide. This was followed by his own comedy sketch series The Jim Tavaré Show co-written with Ricky Gervais, who also starred. Jim Tavaré’s major film debut came when he played Tom the Innkeeper in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. He was the first overseas act to reach the final on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Jim Tavare’s other releases in 2019 include, Here I Am, starring Grammy Award winning Shelby Lynne and his British Award Winning play Bedpan to Deadpan.

I Spit On Your Grave: Deja Vu will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on April 23rd 2019.
