Comparison between the cut BBFC-15 VHS released by Guild Home Video and the uncut German DVD released by Kinowelt.
Overall there are 12 differences with a runtime of 26 seconds.
The old British Theatrical Version had to miss out on 2 scenes with a runtime of 8 seconds in ordeer to receive a BBFC-15 rating. The scenes show Sarah Connor beating down the carer with the broken broom stick a little longer, and how she later hits Dr. Silberman in the back of his knees with a bat. The two cuts were later also necessary for the release of Guild Home Video's and Front Video's BBFC-15 VHS, both based on the Theatrical Version. In addition to those two cuts, additional scenes with a runtime of 18 seconds had to be cut out, as you can see in the following report. The BBFC-15 VHS released by Polygram (T-1000-Edition) contains the same cuts, but unlike the other tapes was not based on the Theatrical Version. Instead they used the longer Special Edition as a basis. From 2000 onwards, the movie was released on VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray. The rating stayed the same, but the movie was finally released in its uncut version.
When the rocker burns his hand on the hotplate and screams, the scene runs a little longer in the uncut version.
