Comparison between the cut R-Rated edition and the unrated Director's Cut.
Redneck Zombies... you either love or hate this fun splatter movie by Troma. You shouldn't expect good acting or humor that isn't moronic, but I somehow actually like this idiot trash, partially because it was one of the first "home made" horror movies from the states.
The R-rated edition lacks every splatter sequence but offers quite a few additional scenes that expand the plot. (Note that the uncut 20th Anniversary Edition features some of those. A detailed comparison will be added.)
The time in brackets always refers to the uncut version of the movie.
R-Rated = 84:09 Min.
Dir. Cut = 90:11 Min.

The four rednecks are standing in front of the contaminated waste barrel and discuss what they should do with it. Junior stirs the pot with their home made liquor while Billy Bob puts some fire wood beneath the barrel. Then Junior and Jethro take the pot and pour it's contents in the barrel, causing the poison to pollute the ground. Daddy joins them and is beefing about his sons. He tells them to turn around so he can add the secret ingredient to the schnapps. The secret ingredient is a dirty sock which he is wringing out over the barrel.Finally, he snorts into it.
RE = 247,2 sec.
