"I Spit On Your Grave (aka Day of the Woman) (1978) (Blu-Ray)" Review

Review: Over the past 3 decades this film has been ripped apart by cynical critics and praised by others who can look at this film for being something more than trash. Personally I am on the side that thinks this is a great film. Everything from the cast to the writing and directing of this film is simply awesome and I think will impress film fans for the next 30 years and beyond. For the most part alot of this film works very well, but there are a couple of things that were kinda flawed like the character of Mathew who I think was a little too over acted. Now I am not going to get into too much about this film because I mainly want to stick  to mainly reviewing the blu-ray.

As far as the blu-ray goes this film looks great and is truly looking the best it has ever on any home release format. Like other older low budget films that have been put on blu-ray this one is not going to look like the modern shot in HD films, but it does still look awesome. One thing I know alot of people will bitch about when watching this release is how that the colors aren't as vibrant and they are dull for the most part, but the fact of the matter is that when this film was shot it was shot to look like that so really there is no way of correcting that without making the film look horrible.

Now for the audio, well it does sound great in it's new Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, but I personally wish they would of added the older 5.1 mix as well as the original mono soundtrack. Either way I personally can look beyond that and just deal with only having the one audio track. Other than the movie the thing I really liked about this blu-ray release was the extras that include director Meir Zarchi talking about the making and release of the film as well as an amazing and very informative audio commentary by the legendary Joe Bob Briggs! Overall this is the best release that you will find of I Spit On Your Grave and will please any fan of the film!
