Release: Sep 17, 2012 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the UK-DVD by Entertainment in Video (BBFC 18) and the uncut German DVD by BMG Video/UFA (FSK 18).

There are 37 differences with a total length of 5 minutes and 54 seconds:

30 cuts = 4 minutes and 9 seconds
7 alternate scenes = 1 minute and 49 seconds

The Director's Cut, approved by the director himself, is available on the UK-DVD and only differs from the Extended Version in the first 15 minutes. Most of the differences are slight plot elements with a length of 2-7 seconds. In Germany, only the Extended Version has been released (both as censored and uncensored VHS and uncensored DVD).
