This monster flick released in the mid eighties really sucks because there was nothing new we have seen monsters doing before. Even Clive Barker wasn’t satisfied how the movie finally comes out. He later proofs that he can do better. What do you think…?
Compared has been the rated-R DVD with the Dutch uncut version at hand as VHS (Unrated Version).
The close-up of the old man’s torn up head runs some single frames longer.
( 16 SF )
Rawhead smashes the guy two more times against the trailer and finally let him slip slowly down to the ground.
( 2,5 sec. )
Rawhead attacks the shooter, throws him on the ground and strangles him. This runs much longer on the VHS where blood flows out of the victim’s mouth.
( 3 sec. )
The first medium long shot of the burning cop runs a little longer on the VHS tape.
( 1,5 sec. )
Even the following two takes of the burning cops have been shortened in the crossover. The DVD starts again when the burning inspector prostrates before Rawhead.
( 3,5 sec. )
After the close-up view of Rawhead’s visage, the beginning sequence with the burning cop before him is missing.
( 3 sec. )
And once again a sequence of the burning cops has been shortened at its start.
( 1 sec. )
Just for a change this time a complete take of the burning cops is missing.
( 2 sec. )
