In order to secure a PG certificate in the UK the cinema version was cut by 8 secs to edit some violence during the climactic fight. A shot of Edward being kicked in the stomach was removed and his beating with the crowbar was reduced from 8 blows to 2. The video/DVD versions feature the same print with the cuts now lengthened to 15 secs. The cuts were fully waived by the BBFC for the upgraded 12-rated 2007 DVD release.
In order to secure a K-10 rating in Finland in 1991, fifteen seconds of violence was removed from the theatrical version. Also the subsequent VHS release was cut similarly.
In order to secure a 10 certificate in Norway, about 26 seconds of violence was removed from the fight at the end.
