Restored to it's original 98 min length for US cable
16 August 2002 | by (Somerville, Mass) – See all my reviews

AIP cut this and added color tints to the flash forwards and flashbacks and changed the ending. This has run on the Encore Mystery network since Feb. 2002 in a restored 98 min version...11 minutes longer than the AIP hack job. A dvd should follow sometime in 2003.
