Year after year, Rusty Nail is up to mischief and seeks the lives of young people. While the first Joy Ride with the deceased Paul Walker was released in theater, the sequel released a few years later was released direct to video. The same goes for the recently released third installment. While the orignal was rather a thriller, the sequels focus on splatter and torture.
Besided the Unrated Version, 20th Century Fox also released an R-Rated Version of Joy Ride 3 for video stores because some video stores do not have unrated versions in the assortment. In order to get the R-Rating, a lot of alterations were required. The explicit nudity scene and the detailed violence and kills were simply too much.
Compared are the censored R-Rated Version and the uncensored Unrated Version, both released by 20th Century Fox.
There are 37 differences:
15 scenes with alternate footage
21 additional violent scenes
1 additional scene
The Unrated Version is 38.03 seconds longer than the R-Rated Version.
