The cult classic starred Charles Bronson as a former cop turned vigilante killer wreaking justice on criminals who escaped justice. It spawned four sequels and is now being remade as Eli Roth is the latest director to contribute to a growing revival of grindhouse flicks.

Now, Dr Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city’s violence when he is confronted with it in his ER – that is until his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and daughter (Camila Morrone) are viciously attacked in their suburban home.

With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts his family’s assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media’s attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel or a grim reaper.

Also starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Dean Norris and Kimberly Elise, Death Wish is a stark and unflinching look at the American psyche in 2018, adapted from the original novel by Brian Garfield and reimagined for a modern-day audience by director Eli Roth, screenwriter Joe Carnahan and producer Roger Birnbaum.
