Comparison:

  • Unrated
  • US TV Version
Release: Nov 26, 2015 - Author: brainbug1602 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the R-Rated Version (US DVD by Eastwestdvd) and the US TV Version.

A group of park rangers incl. female entourage are on their way to free the course of a river from deadfall and branches. Unaware that a killer is living in a cabin nearby, the group gets decimated one by one.

The plot is not exactly Oscar-worthy. A group in the woods and a wood gnome taking them out one after another. That formula is pretty worn out by now and the movie sticks to it until the bitter end. The kills look pretty good though and due to the setting in the woods, it is rather atmospheric.

In the US, an extended TV Version is available. One gets to know about the biker couple's background who simply get killed in the Theatrical Version plus the TV Version contains an additional scene which shows the killer at the beginning of the movie. As usual for US TV Versions, any kind of sword has been removed. On top of that, the sex scene/kill of the couple is shorter. For those who only care about the additional footage in the US Version, the first 2 cuts are relevant. Any other alteration regards removed swear words.
The TV Version the comparison has been made with aired as part of "Commander USA's Groovie Movies" incl. commentaries by Jim Hendricks as "Commander USA".



There are incredibly valuable commerical breaks as well.
