The 1986 UK video version was cut by 3 minutes 52 secs by the BBFC to edit scenes of violent machine gunning during the climax, all footage of metal pipes and instructional dialogue on how to avoid convictions when using them, and a shot of male urination during a Russian Roulette scene. The 2005 DVD featured the same cut print. See more »
Your average neighborhood coffee shop is the scene of a massacre; then, the story shifts to one Raymond Elmendorf (as Harry Curtis). Mr. Elmendorf is employed as an automobile mechanic; but, he can't "make things fit anymore." Unable to repair a car, the newly unemployed Elmendorf attends a church service in the buff. Society doesn't appreciate his public exhibition, and Elmendorf is locked up. He begins to see sexy psychiatrist Pamela Baker (as Dr. Johnson)
The best scenes occur after Elmendorf is released as an outpatient, and moves into an eerily photographed apartment building (with his madness). He is terrified by monsters from the Id, and punks from the street. Gilhuis/Ryan do some psycho creepy stuff. Jeff O'Haco (as Animal) has a nice pool hall scene. Wife Teresa Mae Allen (as Elaine) has a sexy scene (which turns ugly, of course).
If "Bloody Wednesday" was supposed to show how this man could massacre people in a coffee shop, it misfires.
