    I'm happy enough with the old Elite DVD for the original film, and it's not something I watch too often.

    If the reviews show the Blu-ray to be a big improvement, I might bite...but probably only when it hits $10 or less.

    I still have the VHS of the original, so this would definitely be an upgrade for me!

    I'm glad Anchor Bay is releasing the 1978 classic, too! This is one step foward for the return of Anchor Bay releasing classics once again (not that there's anything wrong with the Anchor Bay now).

    I'm an owner of the Elite Millennium Edition as well. Not sure if it is a film I feel the need to upgrade to in high def, but if it doesn't include the excellent Joe Bob Briggs commentary then it will be an easy pass.

    I'm curious about the remake though as it seems to have gotten decent word of mouth.

    Back in the day, the original ISOYG was one of those movies that I would rent every now and then, and show to friends who hadn't seen it, for shits and giggles. "Feels so good it hurts" gets 'em every time. I've never owned a copy though, so I might pick it up if the price is right, or if it's actually a two-pack or double feature w/ the remake.

    Speaking of the remake, it played midnight shows in my area for a couple of weeks, while Hatchet II (also unrated, that I was really looking forward to) came and went very quickly. What gives?

    What he said, but I'll also be looking for screens as we're nearing my 5-6 year mark since last time I watched the original. I can only stand to watch it once every few years if that, but might go HD for the next viewing if the quality, features and price is right.

    I never bought the original DVD, so I will definitely pick this up. Haven't seen this one since renting the VHS.

    Never picked the original up on DVD or even watched the AB VHS I bought, the only time I saw this movie was back when I rented it and I've never really had much desire to watch it again despite thinking it was alright. I'll probably pick the original up on BD anyway though, I'm bound to want to watch it again at some point so why not have it in HD?

    Own the original on DVD. Not one of my most watched dvds...

    But I can't wait to see the remake. Heard a lot of good things about it.

    The Millenium Edition is the one I own. I'd be interested how many of the extras will be carried over on the Anchor Bay Blu-ray.

    These better be multiregion cos the UK editions of both original and remake or cut.

    AB would get more sales if it was region free as UK buyers will want it!!

    Don?t forget that some companies can?t release region free DVD/Blu-Rays because of the contract made.

    If the rights holder has the movie released in different countries, he can demand the discs to be region coded.

    This has happened before... Shout?s Corman movies are good example of this.

    "Anchor Bay has announced that, on February 8, 2011, it will release the cult movie I Spit on Your Grave and its 2010 remake, both in an unrated director's cut. Back in 1978, I Spit on Your Grave shocked audiences all over the world - critics reviled it, but audiences embraced its woman empowerment message.

    Special features include:

    I Spit on Your Grave (1978):
    All-new interview with writer/producer/director Meir Zarchi about the making of this film and its legacy for the past three decades
    I Spit on Your Grave (2010):
    Filmmakers commentary with producer Lisa Hansen and director Steven R. Monroe
    Behind-the-scenes featurette
    Original theatrical teaser and trailer
    Deleted scenes"


    It's a shame that the extras from the Elite Millenium Edition won't be ported over.
