  • Unrated
Release: Jan 07, 2010 - Author: LJSilver - Translator: Matar - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the theatrical version and the unrated version. For the theatrical version the German DVD was reviewed while the unrated version is available in the U.S. by Dreamworks. The unrated version is definitely the better choice. The threatrical version is a bit to flat and unspectacular. For a PG 13 rating various changes had to be done while the unrated version stood intact:








  • New shocking elements (e.g. toilet sequence).

  • Characters got more background, Max was kind of unimportant in the TV.

  • Deeper background of the story and more emotional content.

  • New score in some scenes which impact the atmosphere in a positive way

  • New horror sound effects

  • CGI effects (deer sequence)



The unrated version has an additional runtime of 6 minutes and 48 seconds. Runtime is based on the unrated version which runs on PAL speedup.
