Body Bags

original title: Body Bags

Comparison:

  • R-Rated DVD
  • Unrated Version
Release: Jul 01, 2009 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: klepp - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the cut US-DVD from Artisan (R-Rated) to the uncut French DVD From Prism Vision (Unrated).

There are 27 differences with a duration of 6 minutes and 11.25 seconds.

15 cuts = 4 minutes and 49.75 seconds
6 alternative cuts = 31.75 seconds
6 alternative scenes = no time difference


The superbly staged film is based on three short stories and was realized by the directors John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper.

Oddly enough, there are two R-Rated versions of Body Bags in the USA, because the releases on VHS and DVD contain different versions. The R-Rated DVD is noticeably more censored than the R-Rated-VHS-version. A completely uncut version was only released in France, Australia and Great Britain.


Many thanks to Il Gobbo for providing the Unrated version.

John opens the cooler and tries to pull out the stretcher. But it is jammed so John has to help a little. When he has finally pulled it out we see a woman with big breasts lying on it. John inspects the breasts a bit closer while he is saying: these closets must have been built before implants got that popular! Nice things, should be recycled! He goes to the next cooler and pulls out another corpse.
John: this looks strange!
He pulls out a third corpse from the cooler.
John: Oh, maybe a marital quarrel! Kiss and hug!
Now, he takes the separated heads of the two corpses and presses their lips together. Then he throws the heads to the back.
