For its UK cinema release cuts were made to shots of a cat eating a live mouse. The Fox video was cut by 20 secs with the same cinema cut plus an additional edit to a closeup of a cat's head being hit against a chair. The cuts were fully waived for the 2010 Arrow DVD.
The movie was released on home video in the United States in 1985 by Key Video (owned by 20th Century Fox) completely uncut with the running time of 107 minutes. However, the box featured a typo that listed the running time for the video to be 83 minutes. This error has led to the urban myth that Fox cut 25 minutes from the film for it's American release. The Anchor Bay DVD release of Inferno is likewise the complete version of the film but with a new re-mastered widescreen transfer.
