William Lustig's cult movie about serial killer Frank Zito was released in the USA in an entirely uncut version, a cut (due to violence) R-rated version, and a a little bit shortened Director's Cut. The latter is the director's favorite version as he was not satisfied with the restaurant scene, so he decided to have it cut out. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.

Unfortunately, this classic was only released in a cut version on VHS and DVD in Great Britain. There, the strangling of a prostitute as well as the murder of a woman with a knife were cut out. This version still shows a lot of gore, but, of course, only the uncut version is really recommended. One can find a detailed comparison between the British Version and the Uncensored Version with pictures here.
