A group of five friends goes on a hunting trip in the American outback. Coming from the city, the guys quickly clash with the locals. As they pursue their hunting, a group of degenerate hillbillies living in the woods start hunting them down. That means a fight for survival that turns quite bloody is afoot. And as it turns out, this fight was trimmed down for the “R” rating in the US in several scenes. Unfortunately, some releases in other markets are based on this pre-censored version (e.g. the German DVD). The British BBFC 18 version, however, is a release that features the completely uncut film.
Compared are the censored US R-rated Laserdisc (by Embassy) and the uncut British BBFC 18 VHS (by Palace Pictures).
