Comparison between the cut British DVD from Screen Entertainment (BBFC 18) and the uncut American DVD from Fright Flix Production (unrated)
Nutbag displays the controversial debut of Nick Palumbo, who got known 4 years later with his hardcore film "Murder-Set-Pieces". Compared to his last project, Nutbag seems to be much more accessible (if you may call a exploit-film like that). Even though the film features a huge amount of violence and nude scenes for people that have a fable for that, the psychological part plays a huge role in this movie. Especially the character of the psychopath is played very well for being acted by a amateur. MSP seems to be all out for hardcore scenes. That's why Nutbags is the better film in my opinion.
