Alternate Versions

The original theatrical version (and workprint) of this film ran roughly 15 minutes longer than the new "Director's Cut" DVD of the film. Some of the scenes missing from the new DVD includes:
  • A different beginning. The theatrical version began with The Photographer taking shots of a bloody corpse. The DVD begins with a new credit montage featuring images of characters that will be murdered later in the film, thus spoiling who the victims will be.
  • Phone Arguement between Jade's sister and The Photographer while at work.
  • The Psychic Reading/Killing: The photographer visits a psychic who won't reveal "what the cards say", thus upsetting him and leading to the psychic's strangulation.
  • The Photographer watching a bizarre film strip of a girl tied on a bed wearing a pig's mask.
  • A scene where The Photographer is shown picking up the first prostitutes before the whole "red light, house music, slit throat/choke" scene.
  • The "bathtub" girl/stripper arriving late. She apologizes, and The Photographer asks her to take off her clothes. She does, then smacks her own butt and says something like 'these are my best ASSets'. After this he says "turn around", then is plays out the same as the DVD version after that.
  • Extended scenes of The Photographer driving the strip.
  • A rather artistic shot of The Photographer running towards the screen barefoot on a road, bleeding at the mouth.

Lame
17 January 2007 | by doomsyerSee all my reviews

Oh well, the DVD cover looked good....then it went downhill from there.

Annoying main character, unbelievable plot, stupid cameos to try and get people to actually watch the movie, stupid characters, and on and on and on.

People who compare this to other serial murderer classics are on crack. The director must have been too.

The gore was okay, but nothing revolutionary. Definitely not the "most visceral movie ever made".

If you like watching a muscle car drive around every five minutes, this movie is for you. If you like quality film making, then skip this turd.

The sound quality is crap, but the soundtrack is cool.

Nuff said.
