This is a comparison between the cut BBFC 18 VHS released by Rank Video and the uncut BBFC 18 DVD released by Anchor Bay.

The differences:

15 cuts = 2 minutes and 20 seconds
3 cuts with alternative footage = 56 seconds

This atmospheric and well-done vampire movie that was shot during the 1970s in Great Britain was released to British theatres in a version that was cut down six minutes. For the VHS release, Rank Video adopted the cuts and additionally cut out 26 more seconds. Barely any violence stayed in the movie and many sex scenes were cut out, too. Meanwhile, the movie was also released on DVD in an uncut version. The USA also received an uncut release by Blue Underground on DVD and Blu-ray. The US-DVD by Anchor Bay is cut (see the respective report).
