Day of the Dead

Comparison:

  • Japanese Laserdisc (JVD Laservision) )
  • Uncut
Release: Mar 01, 2014 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: Mr Miau - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the cut Japanese Laser Disc by JVD Laservision and the uncut version, taken from the German DVD by XT-Video.

6 minutes and 11,5 seconds are missing in 33 scenes.

George Romero's "Day of the Dead" had a hard time with censors around the world due to its high violence level. In many countries, the uncut version was outlawed and/or cut movie versions with various lengths were released in order to reach a broader market. This comparison covers the Japanese market, where two different versions were released. The VHS and Laserdisc by Tohokushinsha / Toei Video were surprisingly only cut in one small scene, whereas harder footage in other places was left in its place. The Laserdisc by JVD Laservision, on the other hand, was cut in basically all of the violence scenes by six minutes and additionally outlawed in 1996. We do not know whether the uncut version was eventually released as well.

The remaining running time difference results from the different running speed of the compared versions.
