Although the UK cinema and video versions were fully uncut the DVD release features the R-rated U.S print which is missing around 15 secs of gore. The fusion scene between Dan and the bike is shortened and the scene where Freddy forces Greta's innards into her mouth is cut (his voice can be heard saying "You are what you eat").
The Australian video releases (rated M) were the uncut "unrated" version.
4 min were cut by censors from the Swedish VHS release.
The DVD Version, has obtained the theatrical version, which was rated "R", and the running time is 89 minutes. The videocassette version, is the "Unrated" version which two scenes were extended with more graphic violence. The motorcycle "fuses" with the Dan's body, and Freddy force=feeds Greta, with her insides.
The DVD version of the film, is the theatrical version that runs 89 Minutes in length. The uncensored version, is 91 minutes in length, which is not on the DVD Version.
