Multiple Maniacs (1970) Poster

Alternate Versions

The film was unreleased in the UK until the 1990 Castle video release, and this was then cut by almost 5 minutes by the BBFC to remove a closeup of a man's penis and to heavily edit a scene where rosary beads are inserted into Divine's rectum.
The unrated version is almost complete. It features all sex and nudity and the full 'rosary job' scene. The one cut is to when Divine tortures the cavalcade patrons after dropping the net on them. In the unrated print, the scene ends with Divine saying 'I said no shit and I mean it!'
(possible spoilers) The original UK video release by Castle Video was cut to remove an entire sequence where Divine and Mink Stole have a sexual experience involving Divine being sodomized by Mink's rosary beads during a vision/fantasy of Jesus Christ being whipped and nailed to the cross, and his death on the cross. The UK Blu-ray from criterion was passed without cuts- but this version has most of the music altered.
