Compared are the International Version and the Spanish Version
Jess Franco's "masterpeace" of the WIP genre Sadomania - Hölle der Lust has been released in two versions. The extended Spanish Version was only available on VHS (in Spain) before the release of the US DVD by Blue Underground. In other countries, a so-called International Version was released (approx. 15 min. of plot and sex have been removed). Further differences are possible, but these occur to the particular country the International Version was released in.
In 2005, a DVD with both versions (german audio track included) was released in Austria. Due to the different soundtrack, problems with the music are existent.
