    I remember seeing a pretty shocking and brutal movie many years ago, and i want to see it again to see if it's still as bad now i'm not pre-teen. I think may have been one of the death wish series but i'm not sure. In it a guy comes home and finds his maid raped and murdered and his wife or perhaps daughter kidnapped, who later escapes from her kidnappers by jumping out a window and getting impaled on a fence, leading the guy to go on a murderous rampage against the gang that did all the raping and murdering.

    sound familiar?

    The film in question is in fact Death Wish 2 ( i never really liked those sequels but the original had something worthwhile going for it but Michael Winners direction has always been poor in my opinion of course )

    The film was also heavly cut buy the bbfc at the time.









    This is from the melon farmers web site.






    Same cut version for cinema and video submissions in 1986 & 1990

    Two women were gang-banged by multiple rapists. Ferman referred to this in a recent lecture: I cut three minutes 42 seconds of that stuff, a record I think. Winner was furious.

    Re-edited for the scene between Kersey's daughter and Cutter; with BBFC cuts the scene would have jumped from him rubbing her leg to him finishing having sex with her subsequently a scene where Jill Ireland finds an unconscious Bronson was added in between (in the full version this scene follows the death of Kersey's daughter).
    The infamous scene between Rosario and the muggers suffered the following cuts:

    The shot of Rosario's knickers being removed was briefly cut.
    The shot of Cutter licking her and her reaction is missing.
    A view of Jiver removing his trousers is missing as is the cut-aways to him having subsequent sex with Rosario (the UK version renders this scene a series of reaction shots between the rest of the gang).
    The bedroom scene between Rosario, Cutter, Punkcut and Stomper cuts away just after she is on the bed, the uncut version offers several topless shots and sex scenes with Punkcut and Cutter.
    After Jiver has said "don't worry he'll come" the British version cuts to head shots (presumably outtakes) of two to the gang, the uncut version cuts to Stomper having sex with Rosario.
    When Nirvana walks into the room the British version cuts away, the uncut version follows it on with rosario crawling across the floor and him removing his trousers.
    The death of Rosario is missing several shots of her falling to and spasming on the floor.
    The R-rated US version has cut both the rape scenes. While only the more violent aspects of the maid's rape scene were cut, the daughter's rape scene (where she did not resist) was almost entirely cut except for the last few seconds. Also the daughter afterwards is shown jumping out the window but the US version cuts out the part where she gets impaled on a fence.
    The uncut version has been released in Sweden on DVD by Universal pictures (nordic).

    The region 4 DVD which features Death Wish and Death Wish 2 on a double sided DVD is completely uncut.

    On 26th June 1999, the new Irish television station TV3 screened what is believed to be the full, uncut version.

    The Australian DVD release has joined the Brazilian release in being released with all the violence/sexual violence intact. Compared to the fully uncut Greek VHS, the R4 versions are missing only a little dialogue.

    Yoour right it was not Deathwise 1 as the wife was killed and the daughter ended up in a institution. And there where were no maids in it.
    In Deathwish 2 the daughter is kidnaped and jumps to her death.

    Oh I read both book and the second book was as good as the first both wrote by the same guy.

    If you have SKY, FX often repeats DEATH WISH 2 atleast once a month, be sure to check it out when they do cause they show the full uncut version
