original title: Phenomena

Comparison:

  • R-Rated
  • German DVD
Release: Dec 31, 2010 - Author: Forrest - Translator: Tony Montana, Victor, DaxRider123 - external link: IMDB
Compared are the US VHS by Media (R-Rated) and the German Uncut DVD by Dragon (not rated).


In the US, approx. 30 from Dario Argento's "Phenomena" were cut out to get an R-Rating. Beside some removed violent and plot scenes, a lot of shots are shortened plus there's a bit alternate footage in it. It's very likely that most of the cuts were made to reduce the length.


Running time US VHS (credits excluded): 1:20:10 NTSC (= 1:16:53 PAL)
Running time German Uncut DVD (credits excluded): 1:48:18 PAL

273 differences = 1877.72 sec or 31 min 18 sec


I tried to mention all conspicuous (and inconspicuous) cuts and differences. But there are still many little frame cuts which couldn't be listed. These frame cuts sum up to 7 sec.

Many thanks to magiccop who made the R-Rated Version available, otherwise this comparison wouldn't have been realizable.
