In 1978, writer-director Meir Zarchi released a movie entitled Day of the Woman, which was largely dismissed by critics. A few years later, it was re-released under the new title I Spit on Your Grave, and while it still didn't score any points with critics, it became a controversial movie that grew into a cult classic, which it still is to this day.

We are very giddy this week because a couple of titles that are near and dear to our hearts will be available for you folks to take home.

Your home surveillance camera videos may never be the same again! We are also treated to not one, but both I Spit on Your Graves - the original from the 1970s and the new remake of a gritty film which may be disturbing to some but nonetheless empowering.
The other titles released this week from our genre may not be as beloved, but they are worth mentioning for the completists out there. Maybe they make better sense when viewed in the safety of one's home.
