House of Whipcord (1974) Poster

Alternate Versions

There have been many discrepancies about the 1999 DVD release of this title by Image Entertainment:
The original UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC to heavily reduce the whipping scenes. The cuts were restored in the 1995 Redemption video release.
The film is presented full frame (1.33:1) on the DVD. Although there have been matted 1.85:1 versions, the film is presented as shot. Like "Frightmare" and "Die Screaming, Marianne", director Pete Walker shot the film in open matte format leaving dead space at the top and bottom of the frame. The film was intended to be matted at 1.85:1. However, the DVD aspect ratio represents the film as it was shot.
The disc also presents the uncut version of the film, but, although somewhat detailed, it has not been remastered.
