original title: Reazione a catena


  • BBFC 18 DVD (FILM 2000)
  • German DVD
Release: Nov 11, 2012 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the shortened UK-DVD by FILM 2000 (BBFC 18) and the uncut German DVD by M.i.B. (not rated)

Difference: 59 seconds in 8 scenes.

In the UK, this Mario Bava slasher from 1971 was released cut on VHS (by Redemption) and DVD (by FILM 2000). The Uncut Version was relased on VHS, DVD and Blu-ray as well. The uncut VHS by Fokushin is very rare though. It's also a collectable because it's one of the infamous "video nasties"; even today.

The remaining difference results from the different pace (fps).
