Dreadful release of a classic
on 30 October 2006
Not only does this release have a weak transfer it's also a very heavily censored print.
It's nothing to do with the BBFC and everything to do with the awful print 'Contender' submitted to them.
At least 4 shots of flesh eating are missing from the 'barbecue' scene and the infamous 'trowel murder' has been reduced from 14 stabs to only 3 (almost the entire scene has gone).
Forget what the other reviewer says. This is one of the worst versions of the film in the UK and is a disgraceful release for a truly ground-breaking classic of the horror genre.
