The UK cinema version was cut visually by six seconds to secure a 12A rating. In addition to this, some substitutions were also made by the distributor. This included darkening some shots to reduce the impact of their graphic/horrific nature, and reducing the sound levels in others. Some of these cuts in particular apply to a hanging scene and a scene of self-immolation.
German theatrical release used the cut UK version to secure a more commercial "Not under 12" rating. DVD release is uncut and was rated "Not under 16".
