Caught this film on a Canadian movie station a few months back, (Showcase), and was simply amazed by how brutal, unflinching, violent and bold this 1970s film was. I recently purchased the DVD that was released by Anchor Bay a few years back. Looking into the film being banned in the UK, I found the ban has been lifted concerning the longer cut of the film, and this has lead to a whole list of supplements being produced for a R2 special editon. My question is, is there even the slightest chance of R1 getting an SE? Anchor Bay is notorious for releasing titles over and over again, but I would definitely purchase this title again for a decent amount of supplements (and cleaning the mono track of its clicks and pops) along with an anamorphic transfer. However, I certainly hope the SE retains the basic cover art of the Region 1 release, as seen here: http://us.imdb.com/ImageView?u=http%...1.LZZZZZZZ.jpg and not the Region 2 art : http://www.r2-dvd.org/article.jsp?se...articleId=4545 But then again this is just a combination of wishful thinking and nitpicking. However, as of this moment, I recommend anyone remotely interested in this disturbing film to either rent or buy it, as this is the best way to see it in North America. Be aware however, that the film depicts some incredibly brutal scenes of violence against women which are extremely disturbing (and scenes of this kind should always be shocking). Anchor Bay, I await your verdict!
