Some have only heard of it as the notorious gut-cruncher in the tradition of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT and I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. Others know it as one of the few movies to ever drive even the most jaded 42nd Street audiences into uncontrollable frenzy. This is the story of three escaped convicts (led by William Sanderson of BLADE RUNNER as the sickest psycho redneck in cinema history) who take a middle-class Black family hostage for a relentless nightmare of racist humiliation, sexual violence and extreme vengeance. No sleazehound whos seen it can ever forget FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE! Censored across America and banned outright in Britain, FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE was released in various chopped-down versions as I HATE YOUR GUTS, STAYING ALIVE, GETTING EVEN and even THE HOSTAGE'S BLOODY REVENGE. Blue Underground presents this rarely seen shocker now fully restored from its original camera negative for an all-new look at one of the most disturbing and depraved exploitation films ever made!
