The cut R-rated DVD has been compared to the uncut and unrated DVD (both released by Lionsgate in the US)
- 25 cuts
- Cut length: 252.4 sec (=4:12 min)
Some might remember America Olivo from the Friday the 13th-remake and Bitch Slap. In the torture-shocker at hand, which was already finished in 2009 and finally released in July 2010 in the US, she plays a nameless psychopath who captures a man seemingly without reason and otherwise also stops at nothing.
This happens all the time in a rather sadisticly-brutally manner, which is why the film was instantly released as an "Unrated Director's Cut" and was seen like this on festivals, too. Luckily, this version was usually released on the international market, as well. For video-on-demand-portals, Walmart etc. there was a censored R-rated version edited, which had the most brutal parts removed. If you are interested in more information concerning this usual practice on the American homecinema-market, can visit an earlier Cut report special on this topic, in which this is explained in greater detail.
In the following report, the R-rated version is compared which misses more than 4 minutes in violent scenes. Since the film was, as mentioned above, only released on some festivals unrated and uncensored, this is mostly not "MPAA-typical censorship" (alternative footage), but very simple violence cuts. Most notable is, of course, the cut of the admittedly very nasty penis-torture, which has been removed completely and thus makes the biggest part of the runtime difference.
Runtime designations order is as follows:
R-rated / Unrated
29:46 / 29:46-29:47
Don's leg a little earlier.
29:50 / 29:51-29:53
The shot is also a bit longer in the end.
30:40 / 30:43
The driller in the foot one bloody moment longer.
30:43 / 30:46-30:48
The next view is completely missing in the R-rated version.
30:49 / 30:54-30:57

30:52 / 31:00-31:01
The shot starts a bit earlier.
31:11 / 31:20-31:21
Only the unrated version shows the bloody result here, again.
31:21 / 31:31-31:33
The shot is longer and a lot of blood bubbles out.
31:29 / 31:41-31:43

37:32 / 37:52-37:54
Another shot of this, this time, one end exits through the cheeck.
39:29 / 39:51-39:55
The girl positions the pizza-cutter, cut to her with Don in the background and the following closer shot a little earlier.
39:33 / 39:59-40:06
Some scraps of flesh / parts of the kneecap are picked out and, applicably, blood streams out, in between an insert to screaming Don.
39:34 / 40:07-40:11
The beginning of the tracking shot upwards to Don's dismembered leg is missing.
52:09 / 52:46-55:48
Blatant cut in the R-rated version: Don's nightmare during which Lizzy is being killed by the girl in front of his eyes ends abruptly after that scene. The entire hallucination, in which the girl maltreats his genitals is kept away from the audience.
Actually, the dream seems the be over a first time on the dance floor. Don's colleagues look down to the passed-out one from above, Sam says: "Don, you okay? I didn't have to dance with her, dude..."
At that, Don wakes up on his couch, Liz treats him.
Don: "I feel like such a jackass."
Liz: "It's no big deal."
Don: "I was so dumb."
Liz: "Everyone understands."
Don: "I love you so much."
Liz: "Oh, yeah?"
She bows down to him, but accidently touches his wound and apologizes: "Sorry."
Don: "That's okay. I took a pill."
Liz lays down on him and they make out, the camera moves to the side, when it moves back, suddenly the girl lies on blood-smeared Don resp. here, a dream appears to be in his dream.
Don slowly wakes up: "Jesus. Jesus! What the fuck? Get the fuck off me! Get off me!"
The girl turns the tables: "God. You were raping me!"
Don: "What the... Oh, my God. You sick fuck! You sick fucking fuck!"
Girl: "You raped me. I'll show you. I'll show you what it feels like to be violated."
She gets out a chopstick made of glass: "My parents used to have these. The Vietnamese invented this. I learned about it in school."
Under clearly aud- and visible pain as well as several curses, the girl inserts said chopstick into Don's tip of the penis, blood flows out accordingly. She now sits down on him and plays with it, she then says: "Stay with me. Stay with me now."
Don hopes for help: "Sam!"
Girl: "Sam left you."
(Only then does Don wake up from the dream and thus, his reflexive grab to the crotch makes sense, of course.)
58:23 / 62:02-62:06
Lizzy's finger longer in the scissors until it finally gets cut off.
59:36 / 63:19-63:26
Lizzy's cheeck is cut in a close-up shot. After a cut to begging Don, there is another front view of this.
59:38 / 63:28-63:33
After the contained new view of Don, the following shot starts much earlier, the saw is swiped through Lizzy's mouth. Don utters a feisty "Fuck you, bitch!".
60:44 / 64:39-64:41
Lizzy's arm is being carved.
60:47 / 64:44
