This was originally filmed in direct-sound English. This was very rare for Italian movies at that time, but necessary due to the large number of American actors. When Anchor Bay released the uncut version on DVD, the scenes were dubbed into Italian with English subtitles. Apparently the original soundtrack could not be located. The scenes are in Italian because the English-export edition and the Italian edition were edited with different shots. The English-export edition (released in theaters in the US) used "cleaner" versions shot at the same time as the "gorier" versions. It was not a matter of cutting down the gorier shots to make them less gory, as the producers actually filmed two different versions of the same scenes. Anchor Bay was a bit sloppy putting together its release, as one shot with Karen Black dubbed into Italian can be found in English on earlier VHS releases. See more »
During the intro titles as the camera is following the woman holding the baby, as she steps onto an escalator there is a man behind her wearing a grey T-shirt who is carrying a shoulder bag with a red strap. However as the camera shot changes to show her getting off at the end, the man is suddenly now in front and can be seen stepping off and walking ahead of her. See more »
Even if you can see the version that's not "cut", you'd still better "run"!
I held off seeing this movie until I was able to get the full-length version with all the blood and guts that were cut out of the original American release. The gore sequences are spectacular at times, and they also contain some information that makes the movie easier to follow than in the cut version.
Other than that, though, there's really nothing about the movie that's compelling. The story is really boring, slow-moving, and with some plot points that remain murky despite the added footage. The action sequences, minus the gore, are unimaginative and barely can be considered "action". The protagonists are a snotty bunch that seem to have little brain material in their heads. Fans of Richard Lynch and Michael Berryman will be most disappointed; these two actors only appear for a few minutes each!
