Compared is the cut Indonesian DVD (Dewasa/18+) by Ezy Home Entertainment and the uncut Canadian DVD (16+) by Mongrel media.
Macabre was already released in April 2011 on DVD and BluRay. After several reports, that Macabre is the first movie to be banned in Malaysia because of extreme violence and a cut Indonesian and Singapurian release in the cinemas and on DVD, the chances of a uncut release were simply bad. The main hope laid upon the Great Britain and American releases. However, a Canadian label was the first to release this movie in its uncensored state. Amazon.ca lists it with a release date for the 8th november.
The Indonesian DVD was cut in two scenes whereas half a minute is missing. These scenes can be seen as some more harmless ones from the movie.
