Hell of the Living Dead (1980)
Frequently Asked Questions
Several small companies have released shortened prints with poor picture and sound. The best DVD currently available is Anchor Bay's 2002 edition, titled Hell Of The Living Dead.
For its UK theatrical release this zombie flick was heavily cut. Apparently one reason for that was the overlong runtime, so several scenes containing plot were removed. Apart from that some scenes were removed due to violence. This or a pretty similar version was then the basis for the first video edition by Merlin/VCL, which was later put on the list of video nasties. It's a so-called Pre Cert Video (from Pre Certification), a version which wasn't approved by the BBFC. Two years later, in 1985, the film was removed from the list again. An uncut version was released some years later on VHS and DVD by Vipco (BBFC 18).
