Comparison between the R-Rated Version, represented by the German DVD from EMS and the Unrated-Version, represented by the NL DVD from Bridge Pictures

In the US the movie was mainly released as unrated-version under the title "The Killing Grounds". The MPAA doesn't an R-Rated-version as well. But the movie was released by the The Weinstein Company, which, just like Dimension, sells many of its unrated movies to certain chains like Blockbuster or Walmart in special R-Rated versions. Those editions are then often exported to other countries. This is what probably happened with "Children of Wax", so the German DVD only features the R-Rated-Version.
