Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Workprint
Release: Nov 07, 2010 - Author: DarkArmy - Translator: DaxRider123 - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the German DVD released by Paramount (including the R-Rated Theatrical Version) and the inofficial Workprint.

Runtime of the Theatrical Version: 1:32:40 (without credits) [PAL]http://www.schnittberichte.com/manage.php?Page=Translation&ID=2738243
Runtime of the Workprint: 1:42:46 (without credits) [PAL]

The difference of 10:06 minutes (606 sec.) results from the following:

01:53 minutes (113 sec.) are the result of the change of the rolls of film and longer dissolves in the Workprint - these things won't be mentioned any further in this report. Therefore, the Workprint is 08:13 minutes (493 sec.) longer than the Theatrical Version.

The two versions differ at 139 points that for the most part are longer cuts, short additions to the plot, and alternative material. However, 9 points offer a more graphic depiction of violence. These scenes were probably shortened to receive an R-Rating. However, if you also count cuts (like the ones at 0:18:33 or 1:01:58) there of course are some more cuts due to violence.
At 6 points the Workprint is actually shorter than the Theatrical version - all in all, there are 1:15 minutes (75 sec.) of missing footage. At 3 points both versions use slightly different material.

The Report:
The quality of this Workprint is (surprisingly) not as bad as other inofficial versions. Still you might not be able to see to much when the scenes take place in a dark environment. Therefore, many pictures have been brightened for this report. Unfortunately, it was impossible to brighten up the "drilling scene" and Gus' headshot in a way that you can actually recognize it. We apologize with that. The score is almost entirely different in both versions. Again, this won't be mentioned any further in the report. However, if you don't hear anything in one of the versions, this will be mentioned. All the time designations refer to the Theatrical Version.


Plot:
After his wife's death, veterinarian Chase Matthews moves to Ludlow with his 13-year-old son to start over. After making enemies of the kids in his neighborhood, Jeff befriends with another outsider: Drew Gilbert. Drew lives in constant fear of his violent stepfather Gus who one day shoot his beloved dog. To save the dog's live, they bury him at an Indian cemetary – a place that supposedly is able to resurrect dead persons and animals. Unfortunately they later have to find out that it is sometimes better to leave a dead dog buried. Evil spirits awoke along with the dead dog…

Background:
Sometimes, the dead should stay dead but the horrible terror that plagued Ludlow is still present in the sequel to Stephen King's hit movie (released in 1989). Since the first movie was very successful, it didn't take long before a sequel was released. However, the 2. movie does not really offer anything new. Even though the bodycound was obviously increased (resulting in some more scenes of "reanimation"), the atmosphere that made the first part interesting is pretty much gone.

Special thanks go to schorn15 who made the Workprint available (and therefore made this report possible) and Dr.Phibes for writing the short review.

Then you see Jeff leaving. His mother has a screaming fit. Then you see several shots of her slowly burning. They used several shots that were not included in the Theatrical Version. While burning she again and again shouts "We’re trying to work things out!"



Theatrical Version:
