  • R-Rated
  • German DVD
Release: Sep 06, 2010 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: Dr. McNinja - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the cut R-Rated VHS by VidMark Entertainment and the uncut DVD by Laser Paradise.

There are 131 differences, adding up to 17 minutes and 50 seconds:

121 cuts = 15 minutes and 50.5 seconds.
5 alternative cuts = 2 minutes and 2 seconds.
1 alternative scene = No time difference.
1 timing change = +2.5 seconds.
3 zoomed shots = No time difference.


There is not that much to say about Peter Jackson's (Bad Taste / Lord of The Rings 1-3) masterpiece of the splatter genre. It is simply one of the absolute classics, not least because of its ingenious, handmade splatter effects and various funny moments that will inevitably make you roar with laughter. While in Germany, apart from various "mutilated" versions, an uncut Unrated version was released on DVD (confiscated in 2000), the US had worse luck. There, a heavily cut R-Rated version and an Unrated version, which was cut as well, were released (see the according censorship report).
Now to the R-Rated version. Concerning the cuts, this is truly a massacre. This movie-torso could have easily been sold as a kid's movie, since there is literally nothing to see. Unfortunately, the US is still deprived of a completely uncut version.

Lionel enters the room and discovers his mother Vera lying on a stretcher, getting embalmed for the funeral. When he hears somebody outside, he quickly hides between two barrels. The proprietor and his assistant enter the room. The proprietor says that the embalming machine had been on for far too long. He is right with that, since Vera literally balloons up till suddently the embalming fluid squirts out of all her natural orifices. The proprietor shuts the machine off, while the body preserver (played by Peter Jackson) takes his sandwich off Vera's stomach and takes a bite. Angered by his inattentiveness, his boss slaps him in the face. The body preserver asks whether he should clean up the mess. His boss denies, since the corpse should get ready for the funeral as soon as possible. Meanwhile, forces the protruding eye balls into their sockets again. This is followed by a scene change into the church. One can see Uncle Les entering the church and sitting down next to Paquita.
