After a bit of research I discovered that the much ballyhooed cut footage in this release is no more than 17 seconds of a ropey gore effect which sounds as if it would be out of place in the narrative anyway (Ezra eating brains direct from a skull). It can be seen on the Tom Savini featurette on the extras in Blue Undergrounds Deathdream DVD if you're desperate. For me, not worth an extra 10 pounds to import the German release although I understand that completists will. Whatever, this is a highly recommended disc.
Deranged is eeriely effective and is based on Ed Gein ala Texas Chainsaw without the razzamattazz. All leads play it out well, and despite the lack of dialogue the film never feels like it drags.
Motel Hell became infamous mostly because of the 'pigman' cover that appeared on Fangoria in the early 80s.
The film certaintly has it's moments, though it's few and far between. And unlike Deranged, Motel Hell dresses itself in the hope that this will be an all out gorefest.It isn't, and neither is it scary, which leaves you feeling a little cheated. However it's not a complete failure.
All in all for the right price, this package is worth getting, but it's more geared towards the old school horror fan.

I found Motel Hell a disappointment but Deranged was better than expected. Worth a view but not many rewatches! Enjoy.Published on 22 May 2013 by S. Holmes
