Comparison:

  • HK DVD (Universe) / French DVD
  • HK VHS
Release: May 09, 2014 - Author: Muck47 - Translator: Mr Miau - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the cut Hongkong DVD by Universe and the uncut Hongkong VHS by Ocean Shores

- 19 cuts, two of which include alternative footage
- Difference in running time: 181,2 sec (= 3:01 min)

This movie can certainly be counted among the most famous and infamous Cat. III shockers and can hardly be found uncut anywhere. Only the single VHS release by Ocean Shores offers the whole movie, even other releases by same company – even with the same cover – have been cut. The same goes for any VCD, LD and DVD release. Additionally, a remastered version was published in Hongkong by Universe and in France by Metropolitan, which contains some of the footage again but was censored in other parts instead.

This comparison coverst he HK DVD by Universe which lacks three minutes and therefore is a bit longer than the LD. However, most of the cuts can here be found in places which were left intact on LD: the perverted comments and touches by the father shortly before the rapes. The latter were then not removed as completely but still softened down. The scene with the whipped cream is included completely, the murder of the brother was cut more heavlily instead.

The French DVD features a better picture quality but also exactly identical cuts. This comparison can therefore be used for this version as well, the only difference is an irrelevant mastering mistake of five seconds, which will be discussed at the end.

Thanks go to spannick, who supplied us with the rare footage!


Running times are formatted like this:
HK Laserdisc in NTSC / HK VHS in PAL

Fong is wearing a top on the HK DVD whereas her breasts can be seen on VHS. In both shots she tries to reason with her father by telling him that she is his daughter.

Last but not the least the Picture Comparison between the two DVD versions. Both DVDs have a better picture than the zoomed VHS, but the French DVD features for example better colors and a better viewing experience thanks to anamorphic coding.
