Comparison between the cut UK DVD by Stax Entertainment and the uncut US DVD by Shriek Show.

There is no difference in running time between the two releases although the UK DVD was censored in one scene. The rape scene was altered, but the BBFC homepage dies not list this change. It is therefore probable that Stax Enterteinment is responsible for this.

The US DVD by by Shriek Show, on the other hand, has the disadvantage that the image was cut down to 1.81:1, which results in the loss of some information. This is especially bad during the title overlay and when some heads are cut off. A good DVD release is therefore still not available.

Picture comparison:



Running time difference:

UK DVD: 92:54 min. (PAL)
US DVD: 96:30 min. (NTSC)

The scene in which Leslie is being raped has been altered. The shots in which Leslie's breasts can be seen have been removed and the rest was slowed down and sometimes repeated to cover up the running time difference.

UK: 59 sec.
US: 1:02 min.
