Comparison:

  • R-Rated
  • German DVD
Release: Dec 14, 2009 - Author: Jason - Translator: Gladion - external link: IMDB
From time to time it actually goes the other way round: While the, in Great Britain and Germany produced, pretty thrilling and atmospherically directed Subway-horror with main actress Franka Potente was released uncensored all over Europe, of all things the US-Version had several seconds of gore removed for the R-Rating to guarantee this in particular.
As usual in the States, the interferences come off marginally, restrict themselves on a few short takes which you can see in the censored version at least from different angles, so they hardly attrackt attention. But still not uninteresting that of all things a European production gets censored this way while other, much gorier US-horror movies get the commercially important R-Rating without being cut.






Runtime designations of the explained scenes relate to the cut version.
The rest of the runtime difference results from the PAL-NTSC runtime speed difference as well as the rounding of single explained scenes to whole resp. half seconds.



The edited US R-Rated version, represented by the respective US DVD by Lions Gate, has been compared to the uncut European Version, e.g. found on the FSK 16 DVD by Warner/X-Verleih
