In the very first scene after Marty picks up the head from the bowling bag and holds it to his body, the severed head leaves a blood ring in the middle of his gray shirt. However, in the next scene after his mom calls to him, he is wearing the same shirt, with no blood stains whatsoever. See more »

Alternate Versions

In Australia, the filmmakers were required to make a number of cuts to the film before it could be approved for release and given a classification. Following the banning of the original cut of the film, which the board deemed to be too strong even at the highest of categories (despite an appeal, which was ultimately unsuccessful) due to the film's violence (which is often mixed with sexual undertones), following this the distributor chose to re-edit the film down from the original 103 minutes (uncut) to a version which ran at 96 minutes (with cuts) which was the version which was awarded an R18+ classification without further changes. (This version of the film removed sight of a masked killer sucking blood from a gaping wound on a woman's breasts, a man removing and then consuming the eyes from a decapitated head and then before performing sexual acts upon it, and sight of the killed holding a severed head between a character's bare legs). It is also worth noting that an edited 97-minute cut of the film was also submitted during the appeal stage however this version was also refused classification. See more »

User Reviews

This movie does a lot of things very well
7 January 2015 | by Stephen_BUSee all my reviews

Let me start by saying I respect the hell out of this movie. I had heard good things about this movie, and it seemed right up my alley, so my expectations were set mildly high. I thought the story, character development, writing, and lead kid were all great. There were a few scenes with actors that played small roles that were almost cringe worthy because they weren't very good actors. Luckily for the film, most of the scenes took place between the 12-year old boy and his brother. My overall feeling with this movie is that I enjoyed it, but I wish there was just a liiiiittle bit more in the budget for the smaller roles. If you can get around a few scenes with bad acting, it is worth a watch.
