Comparison between the Theatrical Version (PG 13) and the Unrated Version. For the Theatrical Version the HK-DVD from IVL has been used for the Unrated the US-DVD from Miramax / Alliance Atlantis (in Kanada) has been used.
"Cursed" is the prime example for how to tone down a horror movie for the PG rating. Every single F-word as well as almost all splatter effects have been removed. Also, the effects have been improved in the Unrated Version.


The Unrated Version is 2 minutes and 20 seconds longer than the PG Version!

10:59 Min. - 02:30 Min.



In the PG version Becky says: "Jesus, get me out of here!"

In the Unrated: "Jesus, get me the fuck out of here." One can hear in the PG Version that the shot with the "fuck" is missing.
