Comparison:

  • BBFC 18
  • US DVD
Release: Aug 19, 2010 - Author: magiccop - Translator: matze_hg - external link: IMDB
Comparison of the cut English DVD by Crypt Keeper (BBFC 18) with the unrated US version by Sub Rosa.
This uncomfortable and haunting killer portrait by Eric Stanze had to be cut more than 15 minutes to avoid being banned in England. However, most of these cuts are unrecognizable for a viewer who is not familiar with the uncut version.
The more drastic scenes will not be shown in this report due to their hardcore nature.
English version = 79:38 min.
US version = 95:25 min.

Duration of cuts = 15:47 min.

15:50 The first rape scene has been heavily edited in England. Leonard gets his camera and makes some pictures of the screaming Clara. He then tears apart her clothes and starts raping her brutally all while she struggles desperately. After he is finished Clara keeps lying on the ground facing the wall, whimpering. Her back and behind are bedaubed with blood. Leonard begins urinating on her as the picture starts to fade.
143,5 sec.



50:41 After Leonard finds Clara next to the body, the English version shows him reinforcing the door with several more locks. However, between those two scenes there are 11 minutes missing.
Leonard drags Clara into the bathroom and handcuffs her. He turns on a video camera, undresses her and pushes her under the shower. He starts washing and insulting her, then threatens the frightened Clara with a razor blade. Leonard humiliates her further by spraying shower foam into her mouth. After a while he gets his Polaroid camera and starts making pictures of her. He then rapes her in the shower and turns off the video camera once he’s done.



This is the second part. Leonard lugs Clara into the living room where he continues beating and humiliating the screaming girl. He orders her to undress him, but when she hesitates Leonard does it himself. He makes Clara crawl towards him and kiss his hand; then he sticks his fingers in her mouth. Leonard gropes his limp penis and forces her to take it into her mouth, which she does with reluctance and in disgust. After this gross scene she has to lie down on her back and touch herself until he has a go at her. Suddenly Leonard gets up and angrily bashes himself against the head as he couldn’t get an erection. He blames her for it, turns her around and starts raping her with a glass bottle. Clara keeps screaming in pain until she finally passes out. The last shot shows blood running down her legs as Leonard drops the bottle to the floor.


All in all there are 674 sec. (11:14 min) missing.
