Compared are the shortened R-Rated VHS by Media and the German FSK 16-VHS by UFA (Unrated Version).
There are 3 differences with a total difference of 3.5 seconds:
1 cut = 0.5 seconds.
1 alternate scene = 3 seconds.
1 alternate scene with no difference.
It looks like Blood Beach had to be modified to get the R-Rating. This version was released in several editions on VHS by Media. The same label released the R-Rated Version in UK and NL as well. In Canada and other countries, a bootleg DVD was released, but it was a transfer of the US Tape which means it just contains the R-Rated Version as well.
In France, Italy and Australia the R-Rated Version was the released version, too. (All versions were checked.)
Only the German VHS by UFA contains the Unrated Version. Unfortunately the German Tape is also censored. Lots of plot scene have been removed, presumably to be capable of using cheaper tapes because the Uncut Version would have been too long for these tapes (check out the other comparison for details). According to our research, a version without any cuts being made doesn't exist so far. If anyone can come up with further information, please let us know.
Due to both the R-Rated and the German Version being cut, it could be possible that further scenes, which couldn't be found because they're not in the German Version, are missing in the R-Rated Version. But as far as we know, the German Version is the only one based on the Unrated Version. That's why an exception has been made for this comparison. Usually we do not make comparisons with two cut versions.
(Intro by Glogcke)
When the woman gets dragged into the sand, the Unrated Version contains a shot of her calf getting some scratches. The R-Rated contains a shot of a woman, who turns around when she hears the screaming.
Missing shot of the slimy claw hand scratching the woman's blood-smeared leg.
In the Unrated Version, the woman hits the ground after sliding through the sand. The creature leaps at her and attacks her. The R-Rated shows of an extended shot of the sinkhole instead.
R-Rated: +4 sec
Unrated: 7 sec
