The U.S print was cut to receive an R-rating with edits to shots of severed legs in a meat grinder, Max's electrocution scene, the staircase fight and some bloody shootings. The UK Anchor Bay DVD (in the "House Collection" box set) featured the cut print though earlier UK video releases plus the Hollywood DVD budget release all feature the full unrated print. See more »
this is a shocker rip off but it's not bad its basically just a slasher though Lance Henriksen is good as always but very is not one second and thought he was a bit too corny for my liking second of all a meat cleaver?????? how threatning is that well yes other horror villians use them but and it does work but not for a whole damn movie and the script is decent but the ending is lame and it is never scary it is actually pretty cheesy but most of the family is amiable and there is a bit of blood flow but like i said i wasnt that impressed with it yes it was watchable and fairly entertaining it's just there so overall its worth a watch on cable maybe if ya have ntohing else to rent but it's nothing special ** out of 5
