Comparison between the shortened American DVD from Lions Gate (R-Rated) and the uncut Dutch DVD from Bridge Pictures.
Olaf Ittenbach's seventh splatter-movie splits the horror fans, as his other movies have done before. While the one side praises it for its (felicitous) splatter-effects, the other side claims that he has not learned anything since his early movies (Black Past, Burning Moon).
The first foreign release in the USA, which is named House Of Blood, was punished with an R-Rating (which has happened before to his Legion Of The Dead). Typical for the MPAA, some of the cuts are only several frames long.
The Dutch DVD contained the uncut version for the first time.
