The original ending shot for this movie had Timothy Bottoms getting his feet caught in the roller-coaster track, as he tries to jump off, and his legs get severed from the car. It was judged far to graphic (and might have resulted in an R rating) and the scene was shorted where you see the cars woosh past him. Now that has be cut that you see no impact at all, just his body thrown to the ground. See more
