Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles: Special Edition

The original release of this disc declares on the case that it is rated M while this Special Edition carries a MA 15+ rating.  This is hard to understand as although this is a Special Edition, it actually features no additional footage other than what is included in the featurette and what is there is the same as shown in the film itself. There could be an anomaly between the rating stated for the VHS and theatrical versions of the film and that stated on the DVD. Why this is I cannot explain.  Enquiries to the Office of Film and Literature Classification have apparently fallen on deaf ears, but any explanations we may get will be detailed as they come to hand.
