I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman) (1978) - 1989 VidAmerica, Inc. VHS

.
I've seen the Wizard Video and Anchor Bay tapes, but this one is totally new to me. Found this interesting connection between VidAmerica and the upcoming remake:

"Gary Needle - Career Highlights: At Allied Artists, Needle was extensively involved in its successful launch into the new home video business in 1978...Needle was Chief Operating Officer, Executive Vice President and a member of the Board of Directors of VidAmerica...Current activities include: Executive Producer of re-make of classic genre film, "I Spit On Your Grave" (produced by CineTel to be released theatrically by Anchor Bay Fall 2010)"

I'm not always opposed to horror remakes, but this... this just seems wrong in a way the others don't.

This remains the one of the sickest movies I have ever seen....
I think Cannibal Holocaust remains at number one, though.

I remember that VidAmerica version. The vid store I used to go to had that one and the Wizard Video big box version. Apparently they kept two copies because people in my area were obsessed with rape and would rent it all the time.

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
