From the IMDb:
- Video prints of are badly edited to secure an R-rating. Much of the sex and gratuitous violence Paul Morrissey put in the film for satirical purposes was cut out. The X-rated director's cut, with notable additions of blood and spilling guts, is available on Criterion's laser disc edition.
- A 3D video version was released by 3-D TV Corp.
DVD Beaver lists the Criterion disc with a running time of 95:09 NTSC and the R2 PAL disc as 94:50. One may conclude that the PAL DVD has indeed been sourced from an NTSC video master. Which would also mean that our DVD is uncut, if the vagaries of leading and trailing null video are taken into account, since it runs to a comparable counter time of 94:55 PAL. Our old VHS rental is the uncut version as well.
