I agree.

The video for the DVD was decent (even though I hear the quality for the Blu-Ray out in the UK is awful).

The sound was awful on the disc. I was shocked to see that it was THX Certified...when she was being raped, the screaming was LOUD. When the men were chasing her in the forest, their sounds were LOUD. However, normal dialogue was VERY soft. Got extremely irritating. I rarely ever, ever have to even touch my remote during a movie to turn it up or down. During this, I was picking up the remote extremely often to turn the volume up or down.

No. Anchor Bay and Elite Entertainment are to different company's. This will be the first time the original ISOYG has been released by Anchor Bay. I'm pretty sure Elite is not around anymore.

I just hope they release it with the commentary from Joe Bob Briggs that was included in the last DVD edition (Millennium). His comments made this movie a comedy lol...

Not sure why my original post was never added to this thread by the mods, because the info I had seemed legit....

Apparently, the Joe Bob Briggs commentary will NOT be included. I mentioned the site that noted this and put a URL in the post which is probably why it didn't get accepted.

It's a cool title, but there's not much spitting in the movie.

I'm pretty sure the loud screaming was on purpose. However I have seen a few different versions of this movie and the sound has always been bad so I wouldn't expect much on that front. I'd like to see some screencaps from this "supposedly awful" UK version if someone has a link post it. I would imagine that Anchor Bay has newer materials to use for their transfer. None of their catalog titles have looked bad although there hasn't been that many of them. Basically just Evil Dead, the Dead films (Dawn and Day) and Halloween and those looked good for what they were. Just for anyone who is curious the Millennium Edition has:

Commentary by Meir Zarchi
Commentary by Joe Bob Briggs
Trailers
Still Gallery
Poster Art Gallery
Radio Spots
Articles and Reviews from Original Release

We can safely say that the galleries are probably not gonna be on the blu, hopefully commentaries and trailers. Maybe we will get some kind of featurette with Camille Keaton from a European Release or something. That would be cool. She has been doing conventions and interviews more recently because of the cult status of the film.

I just bought/watched the UK Import for this film. It was pretty darn wicked!

I thought the PQ looked alright; a little on the soft side, but certainly clean and mostly-sharp. AQ was dissapointing (Dolby Digital only, no HD, pretty low noisy dialogue). But it is a nice package with a bunch of extras. Unfortunately, this edition is Region-B locked.

Can't tell you how the US release will be, but I am mostly pleased with this UK edition.

For fans, there is a glimmer of hope, as Amazon have updated the Blu-ray description with the supposed list of extra features:

Note that the Product description is obviously for the new Blu-ray release.

[Show spoiler]

Special Features

Audio Commentary with Writer/Director Meir Zarchi
Audio Commentary with Author/Historian Joe Bob Briggs
The Values of Vengeance: Meir Zarchi Remembers I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE
Alternate Main Title
Trailers, TV Spots, Radio Spots, Poster & Still Gallery

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Writer-director Meir Zarchi's controversial story of rape and revenge has lost none of its ability to shock viewers since it first gained notoriety in the late '70s. Camille Keaton (grand-niece of Buster Keaton and, later, Zarchi's wife) stars as a young woman who is terrorized and then brutally assaulted by four men while on vacation. After slowly pulling herself together, she methodically tracks down and butchers each of the perpetrators. Zarchi's film has been consistently accused of celebrating violence against women, and while the rape scenes are graphic, they also lack the voyeuristic qualities that earmark other similarly plotted exploitation films. If anything, Zarchi is guilty of awkward scripting; the dialogue is leaden, and Keaton's transformation from victim to avenger is too swift. But to label him a pornographer is wrong, and while the film is challenging--perhaps more than most audiences can bear--its depiction of the psychology of violence is undeniably powerful. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

UNCUT. UNCENSORED. AND STILL UNPRECEDENTED.

Some condemned it as 'vile', 'depraved' and 'degenerate entertainment'. Others acclaimed it as 'disturbing', 'misunderstood', and 'the ultimate feminist movie'. Now more than 30 years later, re-experience one of the most hated, debated and controversial movies of all time: Camille Keaton stars as Jennifer Hills, an attractive city woman who rents a backwoods cabin to begin writing her first novel. She is soon attacked by a group of local lowlifes - including one who is mentally disabled - and dragged screaming into a nightmare of rape, sodomy and violence. Left for dead, she devises a horrific plan for revenge. These men will be cut, chopped, broken and burned beyond recognition...but no jury in America would ever convict her. You may be shocked, outraged or even disgusted. Yet you will never forget the raw impact of the original I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE.


EDIT: From the Anchor Bay web site:

Unless Blu-Ray.com has listed the running time wrong, it looks like the US will be a cut version, as well.
Both this and the UK version are listed as 100 minutes and on IMDb, it lists this film as 101 minutes (I'm guessing the uncut and uncensored version). What gives? Why release the DVD as uncut and uncensored and the Blu-Ray as cut and censored?
