Tasmanian Devils

Comparison:

  • Censored Alternative Version
  • Uncensored US TV Version
Release: Mar 19, 2014 - Author: Imbor Ed - Translator: Sebbe - external link: IMDB
The US Pay TV channel SyFy produces alternative and more harmless versions of its horror movies. It's unlikely that they do so especially for the German label Great Movies, but that very label licensed the alternative version of Tasmanian Devils, which features less splatter, but more story. Usually, the uncut version gets released on DVD in the USA.

This comparison focuses on the censored scenes in the alternative version. A second comparison shows the extended plot scenes of the alternative version.
5:35
Stone getting impaled is more clearly visible in the US version. The censored alternative version doesn't show it that clear. He's still alive despite the pointy piece of rock being pierced through his belly.

In the US version, the devil tears Stone away, who is still impaled on the piece of rock. The devil obviously pulls that hard that Stone's abdomen gets torn apart on the rock all the way down to his legs and the devil can drag him away. Blood dripping down on the floor is shown longer in the CAV.

The CAV shows Walsh getting hit by one of the devils in only four frames. This is much longer in the US version and you actually see that the paw has ripped open his face.
