Alternate Versions

The British X certificate cinema release "Blood Devils" was taken from the same cut version used for the American TV version. This same version later resurfaced on video, however there was a second British video release that was uncut. It went by the title "Beast of the Dead", it contains some topless footage that wouldn't have got past U.S. TV, but would have been passed by the British censor. However lots of violence obviously hadn't much chance of making it past the censor, especially a gruesome scene where a doctor removes a man's head. See more »

It's better the second time around
13 July 2002 | by goodvibe-1See all my reviews

Actually, BOB is considerably better than the first film, MDof BloodIsle. I believe BOB could well stand alone without the first if need be. The use of cameras and lighting are improved, as well as the acting, with the exception of that boat captain! I rather like the jungle adventure that makes up most of ActII, but given a choice, I would like to have seen more scenes of the monster. As a fan of the genre, must say it's not a bad little film all considered...
