The original UK cinema version was cut by 18 secs and the 1988 Palace video had the same 22 secs of pre-cuts to edit the infamous scene where Aylmer burrows his way through a prostitute's mouth during a fellatio act. The cuts were fully waived for the 2007 DVD. See more »
This is one of my alltime favorites of the horror genre! A great movie to watch.
What i like about this movie is the underlying drug related messages throughout. It's like watching requiem for a dream almost in that drug-related sense.
I don't need to tell much about the plot, since i'm sure many have already explained it.
I am a hardcore horror fan through and through, and i will just say that this movie rocks. It's got a great and interesting story, some awesome gore scenes and some hilarious comedy as well. It's not scary, but it is a gory, funny, bizarre, and original movie that isn't even close to being like anything else out there...you gotta see it to believe it.
