Comparison:

  • DVD Version
  • US VHS (2nd Vestron Release)
Release: Jun 12, 2010 - Author: brainbug1602 - Translator: Victor - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the NL-DVD from WWC (identical to the US-DVD) and the US-VHS from Vestron.

Vestron released two different versions on VHS. The first release was a heavily cut R-Rated version while the second is documented here. This version is slightly different from the one that Wes Craven authorized and which was released on DVD. There are a few alternative shots, with a few extensions during Phyliss' death being the most interesting. Also, this version has ending credits and the text flash "early next morning..." at the twenty minutes mark. Apart from the opening credits the DVD version features no such thing.













The UK-DVD from Anchor Bay features the "Krug and Company" cut of the movie. A few of the alternative shots are present here as well but additional cuts had to be made as ordered by the BBFC. It's possible that the same source material has been used for the Vestron tape and the Anchor Bay release.

Interesting comment on "Films in Review":

(ps Ė This may be the longest version of the film around, but itís not the directorís cut. That was the second version released by Vestron Video on VHS. Back in í75, annoyed at the cuts that had been made in the film over the years, and at Vestronís R-rated first VHS release, I suggested to Wes that we find a complete print and restore it at least to what he felt was the right length. In a closet in Sean Cunninghamís office was a mint 35mm print, and we went through it, picking what he wanted back in. What he put back was several minutes less than what was actually there, and perhaps two or three minutes less than what is here, but he just didnít want the other material in. And since he seems to sanction this version on the DVD, Iíd go for it. If you want to know what else I saw thatís not in there, drop me a lineÖ)
