Dead Pit, The
The cut R-rated version by Imperial Entertainment Corp
has been compared to the uncut and unrated version by Code Red Entertainment
Director Brett Leonard's (The Lawnmower Man, Feed) first work is a nicely bloody, dark oldschool horrorfilm from the 80s with good and partly pretty drastic splatter scenes. The German VHS-version is cut beyond belief. The US-VHS, which received an R-rating, is less mutilated. Mainly the most violent parts are affected. This version was released in lousy fullscreen, though, while the US-DVD contains the movie with very good anamorph image quality.02:14
There are a few frames missing of one shot as Dr. Ramzi sticks a needle directly next to one of his patients' eye. The next shot is missing completely in the R-rated version (RV)
