This is a comparison between the US Version and the German Version, both included on the DVD released by X-Rated.
You would think that several Troma-movies should be listed under "Worst Movies of all Time", you are suddenly confronted with The Necro Files - and learn to reconsider. Even though most Troma-movies are trashy and look cheap, they can at least do one thing: entertain. Unfortunately, there is nothing positive to say about "The Necro Files". The story alone is cringe-worthy: A psychopath randomly kills women and in the end gets killed himself. A sect brings him back to life. As a zombie, the women-killer goes back to his old habit. Sounds stupid - and is so. Additionally, we have to suffer through horrible actors and awful effects. The demon-baby on the graveyard alone will make you laugh. It's more than noticeable, that they used a blood-besmeared babydoll on a fishing rod. Then they shake it around which is supposed to look like it is flying. The other effects and masks are just as laughable. Everything is topped off with a catastrophy of a dub, stupid music and absurd lines. Fyi: This crap was produced by "Todd Tjersland", who is known for producing the disgusting shock-documentaries Faces of Gore 1-3 and even directed a sequel for the second "Necro Files"-flick.
The US-Version missed out on roughly 6 minutes. If you disregard the missing closing credits (which lasts for 5 and a half minutes), there are still a few missing sequences missing towards the beginning. Additionally, some scenes miss out on one or two uninteresting seconds (wich we will not mention below).
The US Version in the beginning misses out on several scenes from the flick. In return, it offers a few more credits.
US Version: 18 sec
German Version: 1 min 15 sec
The credits were entirely taken out of the US-Version. Instead you can just read "The End".
US Version: 4 sec
German Version: 5 min 21 sec
