Day of the Woman

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

In this notorious horror movie, a young woman (Camille Keaton) suffers a multiple rape by four brain-dead hillbillies, then hunts down and kills them all. During its original release, Siskel & Ebert and other writers and activists protested loudly and effectively snuffed it. Now here it is in a newly restored version from Elite Entertainment with a director commentary track. But the true stroke of genius is the commentary track by legendary drive-in movie critic Joe Bob Briggs (a.k.a. John Bloom). A brilliant satirist who really knows his subject, Briggs takes us through the film step-by-step, making us laugh while putting the whole picture into ridiculously logical perspective. Anyone seriously interested in the social impact of film should see this.

In 2011, Anchor Bay re-released this on Blu-Ray, with all the great extras intact.
