The Happening (2008) Poster

(2008)

Alternate Versions

German version was edited prior to submission to the FSK by the director himself to secure a "Not under 16" rating. These cuts included:
  • a needle piercing a throat during a suicide


  • a man's arm being bitten off by lions


  • a man dying under a lawnmower This version was released on DVD in the UK. However, for the German home video release the complete version was submitted. Ironically, this version was rated "Not under 16" as well (making the cut version even more redundant as guidelines for home video are stronger than for theatrical releases).


SPOILER: The DVD contains a deleted scene of a piano recital that suddenly becomes tragic; there's also extended versions of the Lion attack and porch shooting scenes that had to be dialed back to avoid an NC-17 rating.
