Comparison between the R-Rated version and the Unrated version (both from Lions Gate)
Only a cut R-Rated version was running in the US cinemas. On DVD, however, the movie was released as both the R-Rated (Fullscreen)and the Unrated version (Widescreen). Unusual is that this time not only short frames had to be removed, but rather longer sequences, partly over 20 seconds long.

R-Rated version = 89:37 Min.
Unrated version = 90:50 Min.

Missing scenes, one second due to a Blackscreen = 1:13 Min.
00:00 The Unrated starts a little earlier (Blackscreen).
