Comparison:

  • R-Rated
  • German DVD
Release: Nov 07, 2013 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the R-Rated DVD by Anchor Bay and the uncut German DVD by Splendid Film.

There are 25 differences with a total length of 5 minutes and 52.5 seconds:

22 cuts = 5 minutes and 25.5 seconds.
3 alternate scenes = + 27 seconds in the Uncut Version.

Pretty exhausted and almost out of ammo, five survivors move around a destroyed dead zone. The gloomy looking world around them is dying. Searching for useful leftovers of the extinct civilization, an incident forces them to seek sanctuary in an abandoned house on a farm. When they find a stash of supplies, they aren't happy about it for long. A bloodthirsty group of bandits from the neighboring woods is already on the way over. And all they have in mind is stilling their hunger, too. Except they are not after the supplies. A relentless fight to the death begins.

The US R-Rated Version contains some cuts and alternate footage during the first 30 minutes. Basically, the missing footage isn't important and it doesn't have any influence on the following order of events either.
