(1993)

Alternate Versions

A special uncut version reportedly available on video features 7 minutes of footage omitted from foreign prints including:
  • a new introduction of the Aura and David characters: David (Chris Rydell) drives Grace (Laura Johnson) at the airport and sees Aura (Asia Argento) being beaten by a man whose plane ticket she tried to steal;


  • a new scene features Grace visiting David at the TV station and asking him about Aura; David invites Grace to his house and then calls Aura at home to ask her if she needs any food; Aura lies to him and tells she's already eaten;


  • Aura visits a market and is spotted by Dr. Jarvis (Frederic Forrest), who tries to catch her;


  • After David and Aura escape from the Marigold, she tells him she's taken a little souvenir from Nurse Volkmann's purse; another new shot shows the Marigold's owner talking to the police;


  • David checks into a hotel after following Linda Quirk's car and asks for a room overlooking the parking lot;


  • David asks for information about Dr. Lloyd in a saloon;


  • After David calls Grace and asks her for prescription forms, she meets and confronts him, trying to make him face the fact that he's become a junkie;


  • The death scenes of Linda Quick and of the killer are more graphically explicit (the wire is seen cutting through Linda's neck).


The UK video release has been cut by 7 seconds by the BBFC. There are 2 cuts, both to shots of wire cutting into the necks of Hope Alexander-Willis and Piper Laurie. It should also be added that the UK video release is the shorter version, missing around 8 minutes of narrative. The 2002 Tartan DVD restored all previous BBFC cuts.
