Censuring The Censors

Hills Have Eyes, The (2006)

    This R4 DVD release is the uncut, US unrated version. The version shown in local cinemas was pre-cut for MPAA approval in the US.

    The Australian DVD runs to 103:57 PAL, which equates to 108:16 NTSC. The censored theatrical version ran to approximately 107 minutes according to IMDB or 106:56 at 24 frames per second exactly according to the BBFC's website. Therefore, there is a difference of about one minute between both versions. (Rod W.)
