When the film was submitted for UK cinema a dialogue sequence (in which the men discuss raping the sleeping Barbara) was removed and an 11 sec cut made to shots of a car being broken into, and this print was then released on video. The same cuts (17 secs) were made to the 1999 widescreen video release and DVD releases are also similarly cut, though the dialogue has been replaced with less offensive material. See more
