The roots of Killing Zoe are said to be seen in the super 8 short films Roger Avary made as a youth. In an interview given shortly after Killing Zoe's release, he said "I've been thinking of doing a video transfer of them and putting them on the Killing Zoe laser disc. Most people are too embarrassed to do it. And you know what? If you're embarrassed to do it, you should just do it. Have no shame. It'll be fun." As of 2012, the shorts have yet to be seen.

The 3 DVD special edition released in France includes the 96 minute theatrical version on disc 1, the 99 minute director's cut on disc 2 and extras on disc 3 (including deleted scenes and behind the scenes footage). The directors cut includes a more detailed heroin taking scene, Eric telling Zed that he is going to give Zoe Aids, a slightly extended fight between Zed, Eric and Zoe at the end and a bloodier death for Eric.

Compared to the endless tiresome shoot-em-ups like the Schwarzeneggar--Stallone--Seagal type flicks, this movie shows style, class, and sensuality. A tense, edge-of-your-seat movie where for a change you DON'T know how it's going to end. The only flaw in the film is that it has a very low-budget quality with no real scenes outside in France, except at the very beginning at the airport. Everything else looks done in some studio with a few scenic shots tossed in, like a tv show that can't really go abroad and look authentic. But this movie is well worth renting--and beats 90% of the manufactured, formula plastic films next to it on the video shelf. An 8.5 out of 10.
