So this is the team, hey? A priest, a detective near retirement, and a young moron rookie of a cop... Terrific.
Before its inclusion on the video nasty list the film received a brief theatrical release in the UK in 1983. Unlike its pre-certificated video counterpart however the cinema version was cut by 2 mins 32 secs by the BBFC with heavy edits to the murder of the nurse with a drill, a man's forehead being sliced with a band saw, and a woman's face being burnt off in an oven.
