From IMDB. The video release has additional footage not shown in the theatrical release:

  • In the opening scene you now see more of the alien. In the theatrical release we see it fight off one of the cavemen, killing it, and the other caveman gets up to see it lying on the ground draining out the black blood (or what fans know as black oil). In the video release, we see it run off after it kills one of the cavemen, and when the other caveman gets up, he tracks it down and then kills it using the broken end of his torch.
  • In the scene with Mulder talking to the Well Manicured Man in the car, he reveals to Mulder that Samantha, Mulder's sister, was abducted by aliens at the request of her father, William Mulder, so she could be part of the colonization project, thus ensuring her survival in the colonization of Earth by the visitors. Also revealed is that when plans went awry, Mulder was intended, by his father, to seek the truth and reveal what had been done.
  • There is also an added scene in the video release with Mulder running down the street after the hospital scene.

Xtro DVD  

 

Xtro is a 1982 UK alien film by Harry Bromley Davenport.
With Philip Sayer, Bernice Stegers and Danny Brainin.
YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
No censors cuts but exists in two versions, one with a happy end, the other with a downbeat end. The film was seized by police during the video nasties moral panic but no action was taken against the film.

Summary Review: Much to enjoy

If you can overlook its obviously low budget and tolerate the BBC Radiophonic Workshop-like synthesizer on the soundtrack, there's much to enjoy in XTRO. It's a simple tale of a family man returning to Earth after three years in the company of aliens whose customs and ways of life he hasn't completely surrendered.

Fans of the gross and outrageous will enjoy the sight of a fully-grown man being literally reborn and the several messy killings that further spice up this warped and somewhat disturbing British shocker. Although clearly inspired by Ridley Scott's Alien, XTRO actually bears more than a passing resemblance to Norman J.Warren's notorious Inseminoid, except things are much nastier here.

Cut for a PG-13 rating in the US and further cut by the BBFC for a 12 rating. The uncut Director's Cut is available in the US on DVD. The UK Xtreme version of the Director's Cut suffers the same BBFC cuts as the UK Theatrical Version. The BBFC noted though that it had waived its cuts and could have been released uncut. The 2017 Blu-ray features the cut US theatrical version, but now at least without the BBFC cut.

NSA Agent Gibbons forces XXX to cooperate with the government to infiltrate an underground Russian crime ring, and avoid going to prison. Gibbons sends XXX to enter this world of crime undetected where others have failed, using his natural athletic prowess and a whole lot of attitude. Xander must combat an organization led by a clever, ruthless and nihilistic Yorgi whose first target is the city of Prague.

The BBFC commented:

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure a 12A classification. Following this advice, a sequence early in the film in which a man is stabbed from behind was changed prior to submission to remove detail of the knife emerging from his stomach. The submitted work was passed 12A without cuts.
