The film was uncut for UK cinema release and VHS but the cut US Theatrical version is the only one available on UK/US DVD.

Now Jon reports that the 2020 R0 Blu-ray 7 Film Collection includes the uncut version of the original film. Jon comments:

The scene where Tina's corpse is seen hitting the bed, and the resultant splash of blood all over her boyfriend Rod, is shown intact and complete.

And, during Glen's death (Johnny Depp), the huge geyser of blood spurting up and hitting the ceiling, is also shown in full.

The BBFC database does not contain any submissions for a Blu-ray so presumably the Blu-ray release re-uses the 18 rating of the uncut VHS releases.

The Theatrical Version was cut for an R rating. Europe got the uncut version for cinema and VHS but all DVDs and Blu-rays have been the cut Theatrical Version.

Jon comments about the 2020 Blu-ray Collection:

Some of the previously cut material has been reinstated (the death of the motorcyclist at the 38m as Freddy consumes his bike and body), but other stuff is still the R-rated version (Greta being force-fed is still cut heavily).

Adelaide Film Festival screens controversial movie The Trouble with Being Born

The Trouble with Being Born is a 2020 Austria / Germany Sci-Fi drama by Sandra Wollner.
Starring Ingrid Burkhard, Susanne Gschwendtner and Simon Hatzl. IMDb

Elli is an android programmed with memories that mean everything to her owner but nothing to her. The story of a machine and the ghosts we all carry within us.

Controversial Austrian film The Trouble With Being Born will make its belated Australian cinema debut at the Adelaide Film Festival on Saturday, three months after the Melbourne International Film Festival dropped it over accusations of 'normalising sexual interest in children'.

Sandra Wollner's dystopian sci-fi tale, which centres on the relationship between an android child called Ellie and her human Papa, will also screen later this month at the Fantastic Film Festival at Sydney's Ritz cinema.

Meanwhile, boutique Australian distributor Potential Films has bought the movie with an eye to a broader theatrical and home entertainment release after these limited festival appearances.

Adelaide Film Festival director Mat Kesting commented:

I believe one of the fundamental roles of a Film Festival is to provide a platform for critical debate about issues confronting our society.




Disney admits its racism and preaches from the bible of critical race theory

Full story: Disney+ Censorship...Cuts for political correctness and sexiness
Trigger warnings in classic Disney films have been updated from last year and now preach from the bible of critical race theory.

When played on the Disney+ streaming service, films such as Dumbo , Peter Pan and Jungle Book now appear with a Disney statement acknowledging its racist content and the company's racism. The statement reads:

This programme includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures, the warning says.

These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now.

Rather than remove the content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.

Other films to carry the warning are The Aristocats , which shows a cat in yellow-face playing the piano with chopsticks, and Peter Pan , where Native Americans are referred to by the racist slur 'redskins'.
